is an "Association" Relative to Oak Point Estates Homeowner's
Association and why does it exist?
Associations are formed to allow Owners to manage their community. One
of the main purposes of the Association is to enforce a set of covenants
(promises) which bind all Owners to common Rules & Regulations. Individual
Owners are usually required to pay monthly fees to enable the Association
(via a Board of Directors/Management Company) to operate the Association
and maintain the common areas of the Development such as the entrance,
street lighting, planters, etc., in the case of Oak Point Estates.
kind of legal power does the Association have to enforce the rules?
The main source of legal authority allowing the Association to enforce
its rules & regulations comes from the recorded CC&R's (Covenants,
Conditions and Restrictions), Bylaws, Rules and Regulations. Because
most of the documents are recorded in the local real estate records,
buyers become legally bound by the valid provisions of the documents
when they purchase their Property. All
potential buyers should read the CC&Rs, Bylaws, Rules and Regulations
prior to purchasing a Property/Unit in this or any Association.
serves on Oak Point Estate Board of Directors, what do they oversee
and how is the Association governed?
A. Oak Point Estates is
governed by a Board of Directors, who are elected/volunteer Owners (current
usually determined in May of each year, by the remaining Owners. The
Board holds regular meetings to discuss Association related affairs,
oversees & enforces the CC&RS, establish an annual budget, authorize
expenditures, collect assessments, solve problems, oversee the maintenance
of the common areas, if any, etc. The Board acts much in the same
way as a corporate Board of Directors, whose main purpose is to maintain
the assets/property and enhance its value for its shareholders/Owners.
I make changes to the outside of my property/home?
Most Associations involving single family homes are not concerned with
interior changes to individual homes. Assocaitions are usually and primarily
concerned with maintaining a high level of outward appearance. For this
reason, rules and regulations exist to govern exterior areas relative
to new construction and the like. In an effort to maintain a high degree
of community appearance, any changes
to the outside of a home should be in accordance with restrictions and
by-laws. Additionally, all
Owners are required to keep their
exterior yards in a good state of preservation and cleanliness. By way
of example, things like trailers, mobile homes/trailers, etc. are not
allowed to be stored in front yard/driveway areas for obvious reasons.
Q. How is trash & debris removal
handled at Oak Point Estates?
A. Trash containers are provided by the City for each occupied
home. Trash service at Oak Point Estates is provided on Wednesday of
each week. Owners may place their trash containers at the edge of their
respective driveways on the evening before scheduled service and should
retrieve their containers by the end of the day that service is provided
can I get a copy of my governing documents?
A. You should have been
provided with a copy of the governing documents for the Association
from the Seller when you purchased your Property. For your convenience,
free down-loadable PDF copies of Association documents, rules and regulations
are available by clicking on the Rules
and Regulations page of this website.
