Association F.A.Q.

Frequently Asked Questions

An HOA is usually set up as a non-profit organization by a developer or builder when a planned community is first established to help support the sales and marketability of homes in the area. Depending on your state, HOAs must follow the same laws that govern any corporation or non-profit. They are run by a board of directors that are voted in by owners in the community. These board members establish governing documents that include Articles of Incorporation, Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs), and By-Laws that act as the guide book for association members.

The fees that the HOA charges is due March 1st of $157.50 and October 1st of $157.50 of each year or you can make a one-time payment on March 1st of $315.00 for the year.

Yes. Once you move into a home that belongs to an HOA you are locked into paying their fees regardless of how much you plan on using the shared parks, pools, and other areas. Be sure to ask about required HOA payments before buying a home and get a better understanding of what is and is not included with those payments.

In general, HOAs help ensure owners are properly caring for their homes, and that a consistent look and feel is maintained throughout a given neighborhood. This can include regulating what color you can paint your house, or how often you should mow your lawn. Specific rules will be outlined in the governing documents which you can be viewed upon request before purchasing a home.

Most homeowners enjoy the protections that an HOA provides their home and community. Every association is run a little differently, but most of the time, any late payment or violation receives a polite reminder given in person or by mail. Nearly all violations are resolved at this level, but you may receive several warnings before further action is taken.

HOAs will outline an escalation process for continued non-payments or violations. Communication is key, and chances are your HOA will work with you to resolve any issue that comes up. In some extreme cases, an HOA may have to take legal action against owners who continue to violate community guidelines and place a lean on their property until any issues are fully resolved.
