What Is A Community Association?

A community association is a group of owners who wish to provide a communal basis for preserving, maintaining, and enhancing their homes and property. Membership in the community association is mandatory and automatic for all owners. Certain documents bind all owners to be governed by the community association. These documents require mutual obligations to be performed by the individual owner and the community.

What Is The Purpose Of A Community Association?

A community association exists to provide for the governance to maintain, enhance, preserve and protect the property values and assets of the community. It does this through the establishment of a system of property rights, binding covenants and restrictions, and rules and regulations.

What Are Your Obligations As A Homeowner?

As a property owner in a community association, it is your responsibility to read and understand the community’s governing documents.
