Fall 2008 Newletter Why Does Our Neighborhood Need An HOA?
What is an HOA? Lets look at the definition by Wikipedia: A homeowners association (HOA for short) is a legal entity created by a real estate developer for the purpose of managing and selling a community of homes. It is given the authority to enforce the covenants, conditions, and restrictions (CC & Rs) and to manage the common amenities of the development. It allows the developer to end his responsibility over the community, typically by transferring ownership of the association to the homeowners after selling off a predetermined number of lots.
Some HOAs are voluntary, others are mandatory. The City of Garland decided to make HOAs mandatory for all new housing developments. The Estates of Shiloh Ridge is one of these such developments per File #97-60.
The HOA is commonly created to protect the property values of the neighborhood and take care of the common areas. It must be a joint effort of all homeowners to abide by the rules of the HOA to keep property values in tact and growing in value. The HOA enforces shared values and community standards. A level of conformity is often required within the neighborhood on the issues of exterior appearance including paint colors, materials and architectural styles, as well as general upkeep. The HOA regulates these issues.
A homeowners association provides services, regulates activities, levies assessments and imposes fines. A homeowners association is not subject to the Constitutional constraints that public governments must abide by. The homeowners association can enforce action through private legal action under civil law.
Association boards appoint officers, who are volunteers from the neighborhood, and may create subcommittees such as the ACC or Architectural Control Committee. As volunteerism goes up, other committees can be formed such as neighborhood watch, social committees, etc. If you do not like what is happening in your HOA, then get involved and voice your opinion.
An assessment is paid by each homeowner on a yearly or monthly basis. The SRHOA dues are very small compared to other HOAs and that is why it takes time to make changes in our neighborhood. HOA fees can range from $100 per year to $200 per month. Changes and improvements take money and if you are not paying your dues, you affect everyone else in your neighborhood. If you are not paying your dues, your HOA can impose late fees and fines. A homeowner with outstanding fines cannot sell their home until dues and fines are paid.
The Shiloh Ridge Homeowners Association wants to help every home in the neighborhood by providing regulatory services to increase our home property values and keep our investments growing. If you have any questions or comments, please contact your SRHOA board members.
