Gilstrap Honored with Lifetime Achievement Award

Where do we begin with Suzanne Gilstrap? Many of our newer AMA members may not know Suzanne personally. But I can tell you one thing is for certain…most if not all of our industry have been impacted in some capacity by her work on behalf of the apartment industry. In fact, the annual Tributes Awards ceremony can be credited to Suzanne as she, as the AMA’s Executive Director, created the first ever awards dinner twenty-one years ago. For those of you who do not know Suzanne, she has been our political face of the industry for over two decades. A fixture at the Arizona Capitol, Suzanne tirelessly protected our Continued on page 2

Phoenix Sees Largest Rent Increase Since 2007; Vacancies Plummet By Pete TeKampe, Marcus & Millichap The April issue of Apartment News reported ‘Valley Rents Set to Increase’; subsequently, Phoenix area rents rose by their largest margin since fourth quarter 2007. First quarter 2013 also had the lowest vacancy rate since third quarter 2006. Concession offerings during first quarter 2013 were at their lowest level since third quarter 2007. “The April issue of Apartment News reported ‘Valley Rents Set to Increase’; subsequently, Phoenix area rents rose by their largest margin since fourth quarter 2007.” Professional Publishing, Inc PO Box 30327 Portland, OR 97294-3327

RENTS In first quarter 2013, Phoenix area rents were $12 higher than in first quarter 2012. The average rent in the Phoenix metro area in first quarter 2013 was $756, compared to $744 recorded one year earlier. From fourth quarter 2006 to fourth quarter 2007, weighted average asking rental rates increased $16. In the last Trends update, it was reported that rental rate increases were likely in the next 90 days and that ‘rental rate increases will be augmented and potentially accelerated by the demand manifested in the latest eviction information.’ The dollar rental rate increase of YOY rent changes in first quarter 2013 is two hundred percent higher than that observed in third quarter 2012. As of the writing of this article, the latest eviction information, preContinued on page 5

Trade Show Takes the AMA Away with International Theme By AMA Summer always means vacations locally and abroad and the Arizona Multihousing Association’s annual Trade Show certainly swept its guests away to another land. The Trade Show committee, led by the visionary Kimberly Fitch of Nicolosi & Fitch, created a theme that brought inspiration and transported guests to another place.

Trade show guests stood near the Eiffel Tower, and the Hoover Dam, and other word landmarks that members presented. Attendees went “Around the World with the AMA” as they explored the sold out trade show floor. Teams created wondrous displays with international flair for more than 1,000 visitors. Every corner of the “globe” was represented in the PhoeContinued on page 11

Cool Happenings in the Summer By Robert Hicks, Alliance Residential This year Arizona’s legislative session has kept us all glued to the news as our elected officials worked diligently, and long into the summer months, late into the evening, to pass the state budget and change the healthcare system in Arizona. In addition to the headline-making legislation, there were hundreds of bills moving through the legislature. Our advocacy team has been following a number of pieces of legislation affecting our industry and working on endorsements in upcoming races. In the late summer and fall, Phoenix voters in some of the council districts will be asked to vote for their representative to the Phoenix City

Council. This regulating body impacts the operations of our industry in a myriad of ways and so it’s important that our members take the time to learn more about these candidates for office. I hope you will carefully review their credentials and their positions on issues. Our team reviewed these candidates on issues important to the multihousing industry and the AMAPAC committee has made their endorsements in this month’s issue. The economic recovery continues as a measured pace which seems to give experts, investors, and the public some more confidence. Rents appear to be increasing slightly to meet the demands of the market. Recent announcements about new companies relocating to Arizona and expanding should improve the economic out-

look and bring new talent to the area. The growing number of multifamily communities opening and in the planning stages demonstrate a longer term confidence in the market. The AMA annual economic outlook should be the “must attend” event this year for your senior managers, owners and investors. This in depth look ahead, focused on our industry, will help you guide your planning in the future. Many of us are escaping the heat of Arizona for the cooler pines of the north and the beaches of California. For those of us here, there are plenty of opportunities to stay engaged. Be sure to stay up to date on events throughout the summer in Tucson and in Phoenix through our website – www.azama.org. q

ArizonA Multihousing AssociAtion Lifetime ...continued from front page interests and was the driving force behind some of the most impactful and groundbreaking legislation in the State. Whether you are a leasing agent, a maintenance tech, a regional manager or an owner, Suzanne probably had her hand in something that could have, or does, impact your job or the manner in which you perform your daily routine out on site. Suzanne came to the AMA in 1989 when she was named executive director of the association. While overseeing the day-to-day operations of one of the largest trade associations in the state, Suzanne also served as the AMA’s chief lobbyist at the state and local levels of government - essentially juggling two separate and very demanding job functions at once. In 1997, in order to fulfill her true passion of shaping public policy, Suzanne started what is now Capitol Consulting with her daughter Courtney (Gilstrap LeVinus), built it from the ground up and shaped it into one of the most successful local political consulting firms in Arizona. From there Suzanne went on to reshape the Arizona regulatory environment … saving AMA members billions of dollars, many of which would later be recognized by the National Apartment Association. Over the years, Suzanne developed strong working relationships with the State’s key policymakers including

four governors and was always recognized as honest, professional and effective. Suzanne had the reputation of never being outworked on an issue or campaign...for Suzanne losing was never an option. For the last twenty years, Suzanne has been dedicated to the mission of the AMA.

• The passage of the interior rental inspection fee preemption that is saving the industry nearly $17 million in annual inspection fees. Not to mention the pain and headaches that would go along with having our apartments inspected by the city each year. Those of you who own and operate in multiple states

It’s important to share a few highlights and ackoweldge the long-term impact of her work. Over her career, Suzanne is credited with: • The passage and implementation of the property tax equity legislation that has saved apartment owners over $3.5 billion on their property tax bills since its passage in 1990. That is $3.5 Billion with a B!

know that pain first hand. • The passage of the rental tax preemption legislation that inhibits cities and towns from increasing their rental tax rates. • It is because of Suzanne that our leasing agents are not required to be licensed by the Arizona Department of Real Estate and our maintenance technicians do not have to be licensed contractors. Once again this saves our industry hundreds

of thousands of dollars each and every year. And trust me the list goes on. Each and every year Suzanne saved the industry from some circus or another, a real life wonder woman. Those members who have served on the Government Affairs Committee or on the Board know these issues first hand and the negative impact they would have had on our industry. Suzanne was recognized by the National Apartment Association for “Excellence in Legislative Advocacy” for her work in creating one of the most successful association lobbying programs in the country and was also honored as the NAA’s “Executive Director of the Year” in 1992 in addition to receiving four NAA Paragon Awards for successes in government affairs. No other Association has received 4 Paragon awards for Government Relations! Her service to the industry has been invaluable. It is because of all of those years… all of those sleepless nights that she had, her fearless, tireless and nevergive-up attitude, all of those monthly government affairs meetings, phone calls and all the amazing things she did on behalf of the industry… that we honored her with the Lifetime Achievement Award. q

Gilstrap Grateful for Opportunities and Leadership Suzanne Gilstrap was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the AMA. Below are her remarks from the Gala. The AMA would like to share her remarks and insights with the readers of the Apartment News. Thank you. I am so honored to receive this award. And to receive it at this event is so very special. When we started this event 21 years ago I never dreamed it would become such a big deal. Our very first Tributes banquet had 300 attendees and we thought that was incredible. I never dreamed it would grow to over 1,000. It does my heart good to see it become such an important event for the apartment industry. The AMA family is to be congratulated for making it so. Just a few thank you’s are in order--- and I don’t want to miss any of the great leaders that I have had the honor of working with for the past 25 years because they have all been great and each one has made a very special contribution. First, thanks to Keith Withycombe and the late Dan Hakes for hiring me in 1989. It was a dream come true and still is to this very day.

Apartment News • July 2013

And for Ross McCallister for supporting me when I said I wanted to just become the lobbyist for AMA and leave the association management to someone else. And to Chapin Bell, Nedra Halley, Matt Perrin, Mike Clow, Nancy Nicolosi, Tom and Pam Shelton, and Reid Butler who stood by us when we needed them to. Most of all, thanks to my family who supported me through my career change before AMA, and during my career with AMA. I won’t go so far as to say “it takes a village,” but it does require a supportive and loving family. I have just that and my three daughters, Julie, Heather and Courtney, my husband Hays and my granddaughter Stephanie are all here tonight to continue their support. The AMA, as a family, has accomplished much together. I accept this award tonight, but it really is not just my award, it is our award. The AMA leadership and the dedicated members of the industry ALL share in the accomplishments of the last 25 years. It was and continues to be a group effort. I know you will always make it so.

I always called the AMA my baby, because we sort of grew up together. Now my baby has grown up……you

are in good hands with Tom and my baby. q

New Building Codes Approved Throughout Valley Including New Energy Code By Courtney Gilstrap and Jake Hinman, Capitol Consulting

As

previously reported, cities across the Valley are in the process of adopting the 2012 family of building codes published by the International Code Council (ICC). The building codes set minimum safety, construction and fire prevention standards for buildings and non-building structures in order to ensure the health, safety and protection of the public. Most jurisdictions are currently using the 2006 (ICC) building codes and many are making the jump to the 2012 codes, forgoing the 2009 edition (new codes are published every three years). Part of the suite of codes is the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) which contains substantial changes from previous IECC editions. The IECC sets design and construction criteria for the building envelope, mechanical and electrical systems, lighting and other energy uses associated with buildings. The IECC is predominantly a prescriptive code, meaning the code spells out exactly how energy efficiency com-

ArizonA Multihousing AssociAtion Market Update ...continued from front page viously noted to be the most reliable indicator of near- and intermediate term rental rate changes, suggests that continued rental rate increases will occur in 2013. Highest Submarket Rents in First Quarter 2013 North Scottsdale/Fountain Hills ..... North Tempe ......................................... North Paradise Valley ........................ South Scottsdale .................................. Chandler ..............................................

$979 $929 $893 $892 $891

North Scottsdale/Fountain Hills again was ranked first with the highest rent among all 30 submarkets. North Tempe was the only submarket with average rents above $900 for the period. Every other submarket in the top five rental category had weighted average asking rents above $890 for the period. Every submarket in the top five rental rate category also had higher rents than recorded one year earlier. Chandler was the only submarket in this category with a vacancy rate above 9 percent for the period. Two of the submarkets in this category, South Scottsdale and North Scottsdale/Fountain Hills respectively had the lowest and second lowest vacancy rates for the period. Lowest Submarket Rents in First Quarter 2013 Central Black Canyon ........................ West Central Phoenix ......................... Metrocenter ......................................... West Phoenix ....................................... Glendale ...............................................

$575 $580 $615 $623 $629

Central Black Canyon usually ranks as having the Phoenix area’s lowest average rental rate. This was the case in first quarter 2013 with average rents of $575. Central Black Canyon, West Central Phoenix, and West Phoenix all recorded higher rents in first quarter 2013 compared with first quarter 2012. Metrocenter and Glendale respectively lowered rents by $15 and $4 to combat high vacancies that existed during the time between first quarter 2012 and first quarter 2013. West Central Phoenix and West Phoenix were the only two submarkets in the lowest rent category to have vacancies under ten percent during first quarter 2013. VACANCY Valley vacancies during first quarter 2013 were 8 percent, the lowest since third quarter 2006 when vacancies stood at 7.7 percent. First quarter 2013 was the thirteenth consecutive quarter that vacancies were lower than the same period of the prior year. In first quarter 2013, 73 percent of all submarkets recorded vacancies lower than those observed in first quarter 2012. The period also saw 77 percent of Valley submarkets with rents higher in first quarter 2013 compared to first quarter 2012. Highest Vacancy Rates in First Quarter 2013 North Central Phoenix ......... 16.7 percent Central Black Canyon ........... 15.1 percent Glendale .................................. 11.3 percent Metrocenter ............................ 10.2 percent Southeast Central Phoenix ..... 9.8 percent Apartment News • July 2013

Central Black Canyon usually has the Phoenix area’s lowest rent and highest vacancy and in first quarter 2013, the submarket had the Phoenix area’s second highest vacancy. North Central Phoenix had the highest vacancy for the period. North Central Phoenix and Glendale recorded higher vacancies in first quarter 2013 compared to first quarter 2012 while Central Black Canyon, Metrocenter and Southeast Central Phoenix all recorded lower vacancies for the same period. Lowest Vacancy Rates in First Quarter 2013 South Scottsdale ...................... North Scottsdale/ Fountain Hills .......... Central Valley ........................... Southeast Valley ...................... South Tempe ............................

4.8 percent 5.1 percent 5.4 percent 5.5 percent 5.6 percent

South Scottsdale had the Phoenix area’s lowest vacancy rate in first quarter 2013 at 4.8 percent. North Scottsdale/Fountain Hills was 3/10 of a percentage point behind at 5.1 percent with the Phoenix area’s second lowest vacancy rate for the period. North Scottsdale/Fountain Hills is the only submarket in the low vacancy category with a higher vacancy rate in first quarter 2013 than it recorded in first quarter 2012. Largest Percentage Rent Increases from First Quarter 2012 to First Quarter 2013

South Phoenix .......................... 5.3 percent North Tempe ............................ 5.1 percent South Paradise Valley ................ 5 percent South Scottsdale ...................... 3.5 percent Uptown/Central Phoenix ...... 3.4 percent

“South Phoenix landlords were able to increase rents by 5.3 percent from first quarter 2012 to first quarter 2013 due to area vacancies falling from 9.3 percent to 6.5 percent.”

South Phoenix landlords were able to increase rents by 5.3 percent from first quarter 2012 to first quarter 2013 due to area vacancies falling from 9.3 percent to 6.5 percent. In fact, every submarket in this category reported lower vacancies in first quarter 2013 compared to first quarter 2012. As noted above, South Scottsdale had the lowest vacancy of all 30 submarkets for the period and it had the Phoenix area’s fourth largest percentage increase in average rents for same period at 3.5 percent. Largest Percentage Rent Decreases from First Quarter 2012 to First Quarter 2013

Northwest/ Southwest County . -6.9 percent Ahwatukee ................................. -3 percent Metrocenter ............................. -2.4 percent West County ............................... -1 percent Peoria/Sun City ..................... -0.9 percent

Northwest/Southwest County landlords continue lower rents in order to maintain a relatively low vacancy rate. The 6.9 percent rent reduction is also indicative of the difficulty in keeping non-infill located apartment communities full and on

a rising rent schedule. This area typically has a high concession ratio as well. Rental rate reductions for the area have been effective as vacancies currently stand near three year lows. One of the microeconomic drivers in the Ahwatukee submarket is single family housing. Area landlords have had to compete with rental homes and consequently, have lowered rents 3 percent to maintain relatively high occupancy and a low concession ratio. CONCESSIONS First quarter 2013 was the twelfth consecutive quarter that the percentage of communities offering concessions declined compared to the same quarter of the prior year. Concessions stood at 67 percent in first quarter 2013 compared to 72.5 percent in first quarter 2012. Highest Percentage of Communities Offering Concessions in First Quarter 2013 West Phoenix ............................. Glendale ..................................... Northwest Black Canyon ........ West Central Phoenix .............. Metrocenter ...............................

92 percent 89 percent 86 percent 83 percent 80 percent

Fountain Hills had the second lowest concession ratio for the period. With continued improvements in economic conditions, concessions will mollify further this year and market conditions in several submarkets are indicating a need for newly constructed apartment units. NEW CONSTRUCTION In first quarter 2013, there was one project comprising 60 units added to the Phoenix metro area’s housing stock. This compares to two projects totaling 330 units built in first quarter 2012; no new apartments constructed in first quarter 2011; two projects totaling 425 units in first quarter 2010, nine projects totaling 2,793 units in first quarter 2009; five projects totaling 1,334 units in first quarter 2008; three projects totaling 1,025 units in first quarter 2007; two projects totaling 334 units in first quarter 2006; four projects totaling 782 units in first quarter 2005; five projects totaling 1,118 units in first quarter 2004; four projects totaling 971 units in first quarter 2003; and eleven projects totaling 2,214 units in first quarter 2002. Most Units Scheduled For- or Under Construction as of First Quarter 2013

Every submarket in the highest concession ratio category in first quarter 2013 is located on the west side of the Phoenix metro area. West Phoenix had the highest concession ratio, 92 percent for the period. From first quarter 2012 to first quarter 2013, this submarket’s vacancies fell from 11.8 percent to 9.4 percent while asking rents increased 0.5 percent. It has been proven that lowering rents is more effective at keeping vacancies low and enhancing property revenue streams and asset values than offering high concessions. Area landlords would be better served to lower asking rents, employ thorough resident screening programs and employ resident retention and property operational stability programs instead of increasing concessions.

As of first quarter 2013, South Scottsdale had the most number of units scheduled for- or under construction. The submarket had 1,061 units in four projects being built. North Tempe, the submarket that borders the South Scottsdale’s southern edge was second in immediate development pipeline with four projects comprising 926 units currently being built. As of first quarter 2013, there were 26 apartment projects comprising 5,048 units in the immediate development pipeline.

Central Valley had the Phoenix area’s lowest concession ratio in first quarter 2013. As previously noted in Trends, this submarket is served by the metro light rail system and rental home consumers seeking convenience, access to jobs, education, popular restaurants, major entertainment venues and a living experience that benefits the environment demand units in the area. The concession ratio is not the only metric that demonstrates the demand and benefits of having light rail serve this infill location. Central Valley landlords increased rents 2.4 percent and the area experienced a 200 basis point drop in vacancies from first quarter 2012 to first quarter 2013. North Scottsdale/

Beauty: Does Multifamily Have It By LinnellTaylor Marketing

T

hink Craigslist and how successful the site is for anything from apartment marketing to selling used furniture all while being one of the dullest, ugliest sites. During his general session Beauty: Does Multifamily Have It? at this year’s Apartment Internet Marketing Conference, Gary Angel, president and CTO of Semphonic, quickly and passionately

got the online marketers in attendance to question: “so beauty – does it even matter?” There is no right answer for every company. Google and Apple – both companies are highly successful but have vast differences in how they view the purpose of and use elements of beauty. “Think about the measurement of beauty – it’s in the eye of the beholder,” challenged Angel. “Any piece of creative will work better for some than others. Beauty isn’t always

functional so you have to make decisions – beauty versus functionalism.” For Craigslist its success comes from functionality; it was designed to meet user need, not be “pretty.” So to balance the desire for beauty with need for functionalism Angel offered methods to evaluate the effectiveness of creative elements: • Behavioral – Does beauty support function and influence behavior? Are visitors engaging your site

more; are they staying on pages longer and drilling deeper into your site? Or are they quickly bouncing off? “Measure every site component by its effectiveness in a particular role. Track functional measurement by comparing page effectiveness with different aesthetic treatments. All the analysis in the world can never replace the need to test,” said Angel. • Voice of Customer (VoC) – Angel says to engage user surveys to ask about opinions, likes and dislikes. Make sure your online surveys are relevant to the survey taker – not about what you want. Practice proper segmentation. Ask why were they here, what were they trying to accomplish on my website? Ask about them and then tie that back into your art and its effectiveness. Ultimately what it comes down to is this: examine the intersection of VoC and behavioral analysis to determine what elements of beauty and functionality need to be enhanced, changed, improved. Sometimes ugly and functional is better than pretty and a pain. q

Building the Right Campaigns Online to Attract Students By Linnell Taylor Marketing

C

laire Murphy, national director of marketing for Grand Campus Living joined Madison Meier, Campus Advantage’s national director of property management systems and moderator and industry consultant Casey VanZandt in an in-depth, quick-witted and fast moving look at how to best market and advertise to student housing during this year’s Apartment Internet Marketing Conference. “Responsive designed websites are a necessity,” said Madison Meier. “If your site is not mobile friendly, students will move right on to the next site.”

First and foremost: websites. We all know this interconnected, mobile and agile generation goes straight online to conduct apartment searches. How to best ensure connectivity with them? “Responsive designed websites are a necessity,” said Meier. “If your site is not mobile friendly, students will move right on to the next site.”

“Your site has to have visual impact for students to pay attention,” added Murphy. “It has to be user friendly with fast download times. Google will drop you down in searchability when images take more than 1.5 seconds to download.” When engaging onsite staff to assist in advertising, social media and SEO it is important they have a strong understanding of why they are doing what they are doing. “Students will do more long tail searches. They are more specific and use more words,” explains Murphy. “By educating our staff they are better prepared to ensure all the keywords are included in all social media.” So how do you manage the everchanging, fast paced world of all things social media? Here’s what the ladies had to say about it: • Facebook: Work hard to get 250 fans. Once there you can purchase sponsored stories that tell you what your friends are doing. This typically leads to their friends searching thru and liking your page too. Students are 80% more likely to like something if friends already do it, said Meier.

• Instagram: Van Zandt emphasizes the importance of cross promotion with #hashtags between #Instagram and #Facebook. #Supercool from #search standpoint. It delivers the ability to #buildfollowing on Instagram through Facebook and #viceversa.

• Vine: Murphy and team plans to use it as a resident referral contest – shout out your favorite amenity. “We will see how it does. It is ok to fail because you learn. We don’t use FourSquare because students don’t use it.” q

So Many Apps, So Little Time Look for app-ortunities that make life easier for you and your residents By Nick Frantz, One Call Now

I

have a friend who’s nuts about apps. He’s always downloading the latest and greatest. Whenever we meet, he tells me about a new one he’s found. The last time we talked, he said, “So many apps, so little time.” Now that was a comment that stuck. Apps… all these wonderfully creative little tools. Some are useful. Some are just fun. But for me, the best ones are the apps that save us time. There are dozens of apps available to help property managers. But resident-specific apps would be a big help, too. So how do you cut through the clutter to find them?

A

Think “functions” first… then look for the apps. Here are three primary functions that provide ample app opportunities for you and your residents: 1. Maintenance Requests In a 2011 SatisFacts Research survey, residents reported that the quality of maintenance services is the number one factor influencing retention. Number one! You want— you need—to make maintenance requests, scheduling and follow-up easy for you and easy for your residents. Your property management software may offer an app for residents to use to submit maintenance requests. Maintenance issues don’t always wait until you’re in your office. Use your message notification service to confirm appointments and satisfaction. Check for apps that allow you to communicate with residents and staff anytime, from anywhere. And apps that make it easy for message recipients to add appointments to their calendars.

2. Payment Processing Online payment processing is good for your cash flow. Some property management software offer payment processing apps for residents. Use your message notification service to send automatic reminders that help keep payments coming in on time. 3. Communications In the same 2011 SatisFacts Research survey, residents ranked the ability to easily communicate with the community staff fourth in nearly 50 items analyzed. A good message notification service helps property managers meet the challenge of timely communications with staff and residents. But managing the daily flow of incoming communications is challenging for recipients, too. Again, look for apps from your message notification service that are created specifically help recipients manage their messages and their calendars.

Time is a valuable commodity. With only so much of it in a day, it’s a struggle to keep up—to get everything done. Hassle-free time savers are always welcome. Make life easier for you and your residents with apps that shave minutes off your days and turn multiple steps into just a few taps. q Nick Frantz is the National Sales Manager for Property Management Solutions at One Call Now. He specializes in Property Management solutions – commercial and residential – assisting in communications between property managers and staff/residents.

Arizona Multihousing Association PAC Announces 2013 City of Phoenix Council Endorsements

By Capitol Consulting

T

he Arizona Multihousing Association Political Action Committee (AMAPAC) has officially endorsed candidates seeking election in the city of Phoenix. AMAPAC made the endorsements based upon the candidates’ track record in office, their completion of the industry questionnaire or their participation in the candidate interview process. Apartment and rental housing provides safe affordable housing for over a third of Arizonans. It is critical for

Jim Waring, District 2

Dear Maintenance Men: Dear Maintenance Men: I have a three-vehicle carport that has no electricity or wiring whatsoever. I plan to have wiring installed for lighting purposes and to add garage doors (w/ automatic openers) to close off the carport. Since I am engaging in this project, I figured this was a great time to prepare the carport/garage for future and potential electric car use. What specific items should I keep in mind for this upgrade, e.g. voltage/amps, location of outlet (driver/passenger side; front or rear of car; distance)? Will the car come equipped with an extended charging cord or would I need to supply one? Ruben Dear Ruben: In a past article we wrote about electric charging stations in the garage. Part of the article is below: “Electric cars make a lot of sense for those commuting thirty or forty miles a day. Many of the new electric cars coming out will allow charging from a 110 volt/15amp outlet. But, that is marginal at best. We would recommend installing at minimum, a dedicated 240 volt/40 amp outlet in each stall or garage. Optimally if you are going through the expense of running 240 volts, back it up with at least 80 to 100 amp service. This will allow for future expansion and easily charge two 40 amp electric cars at one time. The outlet station should be no more than 25 feet from the vehicle. This is pretty heavy duty electrical work and we would recommend you use a qualified electrician who understands what you want to do.” A station using 110/120volt is know as a Level 1 EVSE Charging Station. A Level 1 station is the minimum needed to recharge an electric vehicle and may take anywhere from 10 hours to 24hours to fully recharge a vehicle depending on battery capacity. 220/240volt station is known as a Level 2 EVSE Charging Station. A Level 2 station will require a 220/240 outlet for operation. The Level 2 station will charge a typical electric vehicle in six to eight hours. Greater or faster charging power will require a larger electrical service not typ-

ically found in residential buildings. Electric cars are a relatively new and emerging technology and jumping too early on the bandwagon may be costly. That being said; wiring existing garages, carports with 220/240 capacity is a good idea. Installing the actual charging station should be on a wait and see basis. Keep in mind, Level 1 & 2 Charging Station range in cost from $1000 to $2500 on up not including the cost of installation. The best location for a charging station is hard to answer, as each electric vehicle will be different. At this time, most vehicles seem to use the old gas tank port as an electrical receptacle and that port could be on either side of the vehicle. A front or rear port is also possible. For ease of installation and standardization, we would recommend a front of vehicle install of the charging station. The charging stations come with an adequate cord length for most vehicle applications. EV Chargers will charge any car with the SAE J1772 standardized plug which all new cars in the US are using. If you have Nissan Leaf, Mitsubishi i-Miev, or Chevy Volt, all you need is a 240V 15A device, since these cars only have a 3.3kW/h inverter built in. This website has a lot of useful information. http://www.pluginrecharge.com/2011/08/residential-evseroundup.html Dear Maintenance Men: The concrete and brick sidewalk leading into my building has accumulated unsightly chewing gum. My power washer doesn’t remove it. How can I get that stuff cleaned up? Once clean, is there any surface treatment to prevent gum from sticking? Korey

scraper or stiff brush to remove the rest of the gum. After all the gum is removed, use a power sprayer to deep clean and remove any gum residue. If you still have discoloration on the concrete, use muriatic acid & water mixture to bleach the concrete. To keep the gum from sticking to the concrete or brick sidewalks in the first place; use a waterproofing sealer on the sidewalk to reduce the likelihood of the gum sticking to the surface. Dear Maintenance Men: A resident had a flood in his unit and could not immediately get hold of the resident manager. It was almost an hour after the incident before a plumber could solve the problem. Because the resident manager can not be expected to be at the building 24 hours a day, seven days a week; is it wise to show my tenants how to shut down the water and gas in case of an emergency? Mark

with emergency telephone numbers for the plumber, gas company & electrician. Be sure all the shut-off locations are clear of debris, bushes and are accessible. Replace any old or worn out valves that could fail in an emergency situation. All water gate valves should be replaced with ball valves for a positive shut down. q QUESTIONS? QUESTIONS? QUESTIONS? We need more Maintenance Questions!!! To see your maintenance question in the “Dear Maintenance Men:” column, please send submission to: Questions@ BuffaloMaintenance.com. Please “Like” us on Facebook.com/BuffaloMaintenance. Websites: www.BuffaloMaintenance. com & www.ContactJLE.com. www.Fa cebook.com/BuffaloMaintenance

Dear Mark: Regardless of the size of the property; an emergency procedures policy should be in place. Part of the procedure should include posting basic water, gas and electrical shutdown procedures in the laundry room, mailbox area and in the move-in packet of each resident. Include the shut-off locations and instruction on how to accomplish the shutdown along

Dear Korey: There are a number of ways to remove gum from a brick or concrete sidewalks. Spray the gum with an aerosol freezing agent or place dry ice on the gum for a few minutes. The gum will become very brittle and should be easier to pry off the surface with a putty knife or scraper. It may take a few tries to remove all the gum. If there is any gum remaining, spray WD-40 or vinegar and let it soak to dissolve the remaining gum. Use a

New HUD Guidance on Assistive Animals and Design Guidelines By Judy Drickey-Prohow, The Law Offices of Scott M. Clark, P.C.

T

he last few years – following the 2011 rules issued by the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) - have seen considerable confusion about HUD’s position with respect to assistive animals and accessibility requirements for multihosing communities. In an effort to clarify the special rules for housing, in April HUD issued new guidance on service animals and accessibility requirements. Both documents should be required reading for property management. Assistance Animals Much of the confusion involving assistance animals arose from the 2011 regulations involving Title II and Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). HUD’s new guidance clarifies that the limitations from those regulations do not apply to housing. The guidance also sets out the analysis that a housing provider must use when a resident or prospective resident requests an assistive animal:

(1) Does the person seeking to use and live with the animal have a disability – i.e. a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities? (2) Does the person making the request have a disability-related need for an assistive animal? In other words, does the animal work, provide assistance, perform tasks or services for the benefit of a person with a disability, or provide emotional support that alleviates one or more of the identified symptoms or effects of a person’s existing disability? If the answer to either of those questions is “no,” then there is no need to grant the request for the assistive animal. If the answer to both

questions is “yes,” then the request must be granted unless (1) allowing the animal would impose an undue financial and administrative burden; (2) allowing the animal would fundamentally alter the nature of the housing provider’s services; (3) the specific animal in question poses a direct threat to the health or safety of others that cannot be reduced or eliminated by another reasonable accommodation; or (4) the specific assistance animal in question would cause substantial physical damage to the property of others that cannot be reduced or eliminated by another reasonable accommodation. HUD’s guidance also deals with breed restrictions involving assistive animals. Thus, “breed, size and weight restrictions may not be applied to an assistance animal” and animals may be excluded only based upon an individualized assessment that relies on objective evidence about the specific animal’s actual conduct. With the possible exception of its language concerning breed restrictions, HUD’s position is not new; however, it serves as a good reminder that the limitations touted in the 2011 ADA rules, cannot be carried over to housing, including publicly subsidized housing, without violating the FHA. Properties that have questions about whether particular animals should be permitted as assistive or companion animals for persons with disabilities should consult legal counsel. Accessibility Requirements The new Joint Guidance issued by HUD and DOJ supplements previous guidance provided by HUD concerning accessible and adaptive design features for properties designed for first occupancy on or after March 13, 1991 (“covered multifamily dwellings”). Under the FHA, all “covered multifamily dwellings” must be readily accessible to and usable by persons with disabilities. These covered multifamily dwellings include condo-

miniums, cooperatives, townhouses, apartments, vacation and time share units, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, public housing developments, HOPE VI projects, projects funded by HOME or other federal funds, transitional housing, single room occupancy units, dormitories, hospices, shelters and extended stay or residential hotels. In addition, the requirements apply to all newly constructed dwelling units, or additions of new public and common use areas to existing

(1) Swimming Pools must be located on an accessible pedestrian route that extends to the pool edge; however, there is no requirement that pools be equipped with special features to offer greater access into the pool than is provided for persons without disabilities. (2) Garbage Dumpsters must be located on an accessible route, and if an enclosure with a door is built around the dumpster, both the door to the enclosure and the route through this door to the dumpster must be accessible; however, there are no technical specifications for the actual garbage dumpster itself. (3) Emergency Warning Systems in public and common areas must have both audible and visual features so that they are usable by persons with hearing impairments. While there is no requirement for a visual alarm system on the interior of dwelling units, any exterior alarm system must have the capability of supporting an audible and visual alarm system in individual units.

buildings that were built for first occupancy prior to March 13, 1991, as long as the new additions were built after that date. There is no requirement that these covered multifamily units be fully accessible. The guidance notes, for example, “the Act’s design and construction requirements do not require the installation of a roll-in shower in a dwelling unit in new construction. The Act’s design and construction requirements are modest and result in units that look similar to traditional units and are easily adapted by people with disabilities who require features of accessibility not required by the FHA.” Note, however, that properties that receive federal financial assistance and are covered by the Federal Rehabilitation Act and/ or the Americans with Disabilities Act may be subject to more stringent requirements in terms of accessibility than other covered multifamily dwellings. While this guidance deals in depth with a variety of issues, three in particular are of importance to the multihousing community.

Once again while the information contained in this guidance is not necessarily new It does provide new insight into HUD’s current interpretations with respect to accessibility requirements for covered multifamily dwellings. Any property that falls within the definition of “covered multifamily dwelling” and any company that is constructing new units or adding to existing ones, needs to be familiar with these requirements. Any questions should be directed to legal counsel. q Judy Drickey-Prohow is an attorney with the Law Offices of Scott M. Clark, P.C.. She can reached at 520.241.1847.
