General HOA Questions
  • chevron_rightWhat are the CC&Rs?
    The complete list of CC&Rs is located in the Document section of this website.
  • chevron_rightWhat is a Reserve Study?
    In order to maintain and preserve market values of both the residential and common area property, an HOA must develop funding plans for future repair or replacement of major common-area components, such as swimming pools, decks, asphalt surfaces, concrete areas, fencing, monument signs, and much more. Thus, a Reserve Study provides guidance on how much your HOA should be putting aside each month for reserves so it can meet the future obligations described above without requiring special assessments.
     
  • chevron_rightWhat is an HOA?
    An HOA or Homeowner Association is a legal entity created to manage and maintain the common areas of a community. Typically these "common areas" consist of things like pools, clubhouses, landscaping, parks, streets and roads.
     
    HOAs can consist of single family homes, condominiums, or town homes and are typically setup by the original developer of the community with a set of rules called "Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions" otherwise known as "CC&Rs".
    One of the primary functions of the HOA is enforce and ensure that these "CC&Rs" are adhered to by the individual homeowners. The guiding principles of these regulations are normally to help maintain property values and the quality of life within the community.
     
Management Questions
  • chevron_rightHow do I get a pool/tennis court key?
    Pool fobs can be picked up from the management office. Each household may only have one fob at a time. If you lose your fob, there is a charge of $50 for a replacement fob.
     
    **Upon notice of a sale of a home, the key fobs associated with that home are deactivated. New homeowners should be sure to get their pool fob from the old owner with the other house keys. Once you have the key fob, contact the management company and they will reactivate the key for you. There is no need to come in to do this. But if the seller does not provide the fob to the new owner, the fob is deactivated and a new fob will be issued to the new owner.
