Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
A homeowner association (HOA), also known as a Common Interest Development (CID) and a community association, is a non-profit entity under which community governance structure is established and operated. Homeowners associations are established with the intent of protecting the community assets and instituting prudent physical and financial maintenance practices. Decisions concerning homeowner association operations are made by a volunteer Board of Directors elected by the community residents during the annual meeting of the membership.
As the Board of Directors is comprised of volunteers, it is generally a good idea as fiduciary for an entire group of homeowners to hire a managing agent specializing in homeowners association operations. Professional management firms possess knowledge of changing legislation affecting non-profit corporations and understand fiscal as well as physical management requirements of these entities. The scope of services provided by a managing agent will vary based on the needs of each homeowner association. Contractual management duties may include preparation of financial statements, collection of dues, coordination with maintenance vendors, bid and proposal acquisition.
All persons owning a unit or lot within the Huntington Continental Townhouse Association community automatically become a member of the Huntington Continental Townhouse Association and are required to pay the monthly assessment. Non-payment could result in a lien against the home.
The monthly dues assessment covers the operation, maintenance and repairs for which the Association is obligated, per the Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions(CC&R’s). Items such as insurance, taxes, water, electricity, landscaping services, street sweeping, janitorial, and even pest control are just a few of the items covered by dues. Dues also cover the funding of reserves which are applied to future repair or replacement of major components for which the Association is responsible, such as roofing, painting, and street repair in a condominium development. A budget summary is mailed to each homeowner on an annual basis outlining where dues are spent.
