A homeowner’s association (HOA) is a not-for-profit registered with the state of Delaware that is managed by an Executive Board. An HOA is responsible for maintaining common areas and governing the associated community in accordance with CC&Rs, bylaws, and articles of incorporation. An HOA is supported financially by all of its members, and generally membership is both automatic and mandatory.
CC&Rs are the Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions that detail all of the guidelines for the operation of your community. These are legally binding documents that are on record with the office of the County in Delaware. They are also included in the title of each property. Homeowners and unit owners who choose not to abide by the CC&Rs of their HOA may face fines or further consequences.
At the top of the structure is an elected Executive Board responsible for overseeing the community. Your HOA has governing documents that detail the exact responsibilities and limitations of the Executive Board.
Most communities and HOAs also have rules and regulations beyond the CC&Rs that are adopted by the Executive Board. These rules are used to explicitly state common courtesies associated with parking, pets, pool use, and more. There are also architectural guidelines that will serve as a basis for making exterior and interior decisions about your home, like color changes or major exterior renovations. All of the rules and regulations are not designed to micro-manage your community experience. Instead, they are outlined to improve the community experience and ensure high property values. Just like with CC&Rs, violations might result in fines or further consequences.
Contact PPM. PPM will communicate with the owner in violation and come to a resolution. If you are interested in formally filing a complaint, you can file a CC&R Violation Complaint with Premier Property & Pool Management. You can complete this form online, over the phone or in person at your local property management office.
Executive Board meetings are always open to residents. The time and location of your HOA’s next meeting will always be posted with advance notice on the website, community newsletter or through USPS.
The assessment is the amount that every homeowner in an HOA or Association-governed property pays for the upkeep of all common areas and provision of reserve funds for repairs and replacements. Assessments can be due the first of the month, quarterly, semiannually or annually.
Unfortunately, we can’t provide a concrete answer to this question online. Depending on the HOA or Association that governs your property, annual increases might be included or voted on annually at the discretion of the Executive Board.
