FAQ

The Association is a legal corporation organized and incorporate under the laws of your state or commonwealth. The Association has Articles of Incorporation that entitle the association to exercise powers of a corporation. By purchasing a home within your community association, you automatically become a member of the association and will remain so for as long as you own your home. Membership in the association is mandatory and automatic for all owners. The deed to each lot and/or parcel specifically designates that the property owner will comply with the Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CC&R’s) of the association. You should have received a copy of these documents at the time your home purchase was closed by the title company. As a property owner in a community association, you will be required to pay assessments, abide by the community’s rules and restrictions and maintain those areas of your home for which you are responsible.

Pursuant to the Bylaws: (including, but not limited to):

  • Filling a vacancy on the Board of Directors
  • Establishing rules and regulations for the association
  • Setting the Annual Assessment rate
  • Contracting for services of the association (management, landscape, maintenance, etc)
  • Using and disbursing association funds
  • Establishing committees
  • Enforcing the CC&R’s
  • Electing officers for the association
  • Preparing the annual budget
  • Insuring the association
  • Investing excess funds controlled by the Association

The members of the association vote to elect the Board of Directors. We have specific bylaws outlining the process for board elections. Board elections take place at the annual meeting of the members in person or by absentee ballot and per state statute. Director terms become vacant and are filled at the Annual Meeting. At the Annual Meeting the votes of the membership are tallied for those candidates who are running for a position on the Board. Those voting must also be in good standing in order for their vote to count. All the votes will be tallied and the results announced at the end of the meeting.

The Board appoints other committee members as deemed appropriate to carry out its purpose and delegate to said committees such powers and duties required to execute and enforce the committee’s responsibilities. Each committee shall perform such functions as directed by the Covenants and shall advise the Board on all matters pertaining to their Committee.

Assessments and dues are both references to your mandatory monthly, quarterly, or annual assessments (whichever pertain to your community). Fees, on the other hand, are typically additional charges incurred by a member of the association who is delinquent in paying assessments or has violated the governing documents of the association.
