Homeowners Association Info
Some neighborhoods have casual HOA's and some have very formal HOA'S. These organizations are legal enities and have power to enforce rules that were established in their bylaws. Homeowner Associations are created by builders and developers to help ensure that all homeowners living in a particlar neighborhood will take care and pride in their properties.
The HOA 's responsibility is to monitor the neighborhood and make sure that everybody is keeping their yards clean, cleaning up after their pets, removing trash cans from the curbs, not setting up businesses in their homes, not parking on the sidewalks or having loud and annoying parties. These are just some examples of items that an HOA tries to control. A list of common infractions is located on our website here: Homeowner Association Topics. If you want an entire list of rules that pertain to your neighborhood, you can call the respective HOA to request updated documents. See the list of HOAs below.
How HOA Infractions Are Identified
As part of their job, an HOA employee drives throughout the neighborhood several times a month looking for infractions. Once they find a home that is in violation of the HOA rules, they send out a letter of violation to the owner. This letter is usually followed up with a second letter within ten days if the problem has not been addressed and fixed.
As the tenant living in a home where there is an active HOA, you are responsible for any violation that occurs at your rental property. This also includes any violations incurred by your guests.
Once the HOA informs the homeowner, Tyson will send you a written notice to fix the problem. If the problem is not fixed within seven to ten days, the HOA will fine the owner of the home. These fines can range between $50 and $250. Once you have been notified, and if you have not fixed the problem, you, the tenant, will be responsible for paying this fine.
