Governing Structure

All community associations have three defining characteristics: (1) membership is mandatory and automatic for all owners; (2) certain documents (typically covenants) bind all owners to be governed by the community association; and (3) mandatory lien-based assessments are levied on each owner in order to operate and maintain the community association.

Covenants are the foundation of the community association. They exist in nearly all planned development communities, and are entered into by a buyer upon property purchase. Research substantiates that homeowners purchase in a community association based on overall neighborhood attractiveness, association property maintenance services, and the protection of property values. Covenants provide the groundwork for members to receive these and other services and benefits, and lay out the duties and responsibilities of both the association and homeowners.
