What are Architectural Requests?
Architectural Requests, sometimes abbreviated as ACC, ARC, or ARB, allow you to collect architectural change requests from property owners, communicate and clarify intent, and ultimately record and track approval or denial of the request.
HOALife architectural software streamlines and simplifies homeowner modification requests and brings everything online for committee members to quickly review, vote, and approve architectural requests from anywhere, at any time. Make your volunteer job easier and be a hero to your community’s residents.
The starting point of all architectural requests is collecting data about the request from the property owner. This process can be initiated by a property owner via the HOALife Portal or via the association manager, via the Dashboard.
The data collected is customized by specifying the Architectural Request Forms available for your association.
The amount of detail and precision you require for your Architectural Requests is up to you. Attach your published architectural guidelines, color pallets, etc. directly to the request form to remove ambiguity for the property owner.
Clarify and Communicate
Use our high-fidelity web-based dashboard to review submissions from any device.
Once a property owner has submitted their Architectural Request, you may require additional information, clarification on data input by the property owner, or general comments.
Communicate with the property owner directly within the Architectural Request about the status of their request, the requirement for resubmittal, or clarification about some of the information they submitted.
Approve and Deny
Once the property owner has submitted enough information for your Architectural Request committee to approve or deny the request, record the verdict with any comments or conditions.
Follow up with the property owner with official approval/denial with an official letter if you so chose.
Utilize our highly customizable Architectural Notice templates to deliver personalized notices. They are automatically generated for you after you've recorded the decision.
Report and Track
Automatic, comprehensive, Architectural Summaries. Keep your board members completely informed.
You can access and track all Architectural Requests for an association by navigating to the Architectural Requests page.
Architectural Information stays with the corresponding property record and is fully visible on the inspection app.
