Hello. My name is Alex.Thank you for your question.I will be happy to provide you with information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Are you asking if the HOA is permitted to terminate security employees employed by HOA and contract with an independent company to provide security for the HOA?
Thank you for your follow up.
Do you pay on your own for the alarm system / service or is it included in HOA dues?
Does your security company provides its own security response team or does it simply notify 911 in case of an active alarm?
Are you being forced to install and pay for the new "exclusive" alarm company?
Generally, the HOA can in fact require all of the member homeowners to split the cost of an alarm company designated by the HOA, however, while the home owner would be obligate to pay their share of the HOA alarm company cost, the homeowner would not be required to use the alarm company service and still should be able to choose their own alarm company at the expense of the homeowner (in addition to the share of cost related to the HOA contracted alarm company.
I wish you the best of luck!
