Questions About Your Homeowners Association

  • What is a homeowners' association and what is its purpose?

    Homeowners’ associations are non-profit corporations created to help preserve property values through the use of architectural controls, design guidelines and deed restrictions. Additionally, associations provide for the shared ownership and maintenance of common areas and community facilities. Assessments are charged to owners for the maintenance and upkeep of these common areas and amenities.
  • What is the Board of Directors and what do they do?

    The Board of Directors is established in the association's governing documents to act as the governing body responsible for making decisions, establishing policies, enforcing rules and regulations and deed and use restrictions and is responsible for the collection of assessments. The Board of Directors are homeowners in the community, elected by the membership (homeowners).
  • What are the deed restrictions and do I have to abide by them?

    Deed restrictions, are rules that govern the association and its members. The deed restrictions and architectural controls set forth in the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions and the Design Guidelines ensure the preservation of the original architectural design. For example, “Owners must keep fences in good repair…” You will receive a copy of the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions for your Association from the title company when you close on your home. Additional copies of the governing documents for Hunters Creek may be obtained from this website under the Documents tab.
  • When does the association hold meetings?

    The Hunters Creek HOA Board of Directors meets every other month at a minimum. Homeowners are welcome to attend Board meetings, and notice of these meetings will be sent via email blast from the website.

    The Annual Meeting of homeowners is usually held in November. Notice of the Annual Meeting will be mailed by US postal service to all homeowners. Information will also be posted on the website.
  • What do my assessments pay for?

    The assessments paid by homeowners are used to operate the association’s business. For example, there are utilities that operate irrigation and lighting in the community. The “common areas” owned by the association must be maintained, so contractors are hired to maintain the landscaping, pool and other amenities. The association carries general liability, property and Director’s/Officer’s liability insurance to protect the association’s assets and Board of Directors. In addition, the association pays a management company to collect dues, pay expenses, maintain the financial records, communicate with owners, supervise contractors and so on. There are taxes the association is responsible for, and the association should always plan to set aside funds for future repair or replacement of the associations capital assets via the Reserves fund.
