Community Association

The association is a legal corporation organized and incorporated under the laws of Texas. The association has articles of incorporation that entitle the association to exercise powers of a corporation. By purchasing a home within the 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) 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 the 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.

Board of Directors

The association is a not-for-profit corporation. As such, the board’s responsibility is to run the business of the corporation. The board has a fiduciary responsibility to the stockholders or owners of the corporation. This includes timely collection of assessments as well as payments made for services provided to the association. In general, the board members are the decision makers for the association. The board of directors is comprised of individual homeowners who live within the same subdivision and who are elected to that position by the members of the association. All affairs of your association are governed by the board.

 

The directors are homeowners, like you, that are elected by the membership.

  • Fill any vacancy on the board of directors
  • Establish rules and regulations for the association
  • Set the annual assessment rate
  • Contract for services of the association (management, landscape, maintenance, etc.)
  • Use and disburse association funds
  • Establish committees

The members of the association vote to elect the board of directors. The association has specific bylaws outlining the process for board elections. Generally speaking, the board elections take place on an annual basis either prior to (in the case of absentee ballots) or at the annual meeting of the members (proxies and ballots). Positions usually become vacant and are normally filled during the annual meeting. During the annual meeting a vote via a secret ballot is taken for the nominees 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 are tallied and the results announced. Board members can have more than one position when their position consists of two roles i.e., Secretary / Treasurer.

In general, the association has the following committees: Architectural Guideline Review; Communication and Public Relations; Landscaping; and Traffic and Safety. There may also be ad-hoc committees, temporarily created for specific one-time items (e.g. selection of a refuse provider). Members of committees are appointed and removed by the board of directors. The primary function of the committee is to render a recommendation to the board on the subject matter of their committee. This recommendation, once delivered to the board, is then approved or rejected by the board.

Budgets and Assessments

The community manager can provide this information. However, the association has an annual meeting where the board discusses the financial aspect of the association with the homeowners. Attending this meeting can be very enlightening and helps each homeowner understand the workings of the association.

 

In order for the board to accomplish the many tasks for which it is responsible, the association needs operating funds for daily maintenance, repairs, administration and adequate reserve funds for major repairs or replacements of capital items. Common items include the park, pool, tennis court, pavilion, sidewalks, etc. As a member of the association, you are required to pay a share of the costs.

 

The annual assessment may be adjusted by a majority vote of the board of directors but shall not be increased by more than a specified percentage, outlined in your governing documents. Anything above that percentage would have to be voted on by the homeowners, by proxy or in person.

 

The maintenance and management services incurred by the association are dependent upon timely receipt of the assessments due from each homeowner. Late payments will result in a late charge. In addition, the CC&R allows the association to charge late charges and interest and proceed with a lien on your property or foreclosure proceeding for nonpayment of assessments.
