To determine whether the association has a minimum annual budgeted replacement reserve allocation of 10%, the lender must divide the annual budgeted replacement reserve allocation by the association’s annual budgeted assessment income (which includes regular common expense fees).
The following types of income may be excluded from the reserve calculation:
- incidental income on which the project does not rely for ongoing operations, maintenance, or capital improvements;
- income collected for utilities that would typically be paid by individual unit owners, such as cable TV or Internet access;
- income allocated to reserve accounts; and
- special assessment income.
