I don’t think it’s unreasonable a tall. If they have an employee with ah istory of fraud or criminal activity, I think we have a right to know. We don’t want a management company if it comes with a higher risk of financial dishonesty.
I know gates have pros and cons but you also have to consider the way your community is set up. In a previous HOA I lived in, we only had the one entrance/exit so putting a gate there gave us a big headaches. When the gate failed, we had no way of getting in and out.
