Homeowner Associations (HOA)A Home Owners' Association (HOA) is a legal entity that governs a subdivision, condominium or town home development, or planned community. An HOA provides people with shared neighborhood values an opportunity to develop regulations, consistent with overriding statutory constraints, to achieve a community representative of such values. HOA membership is mandatory for all property owners within the development. A board of directors operates the HOA, bound by the HOA Bylaws, Declaration and other governing documents. Board positions are filled by election or appointment. An HOA has certain duties that may include: collecting a fee assessment from all owners to maintain common areas, addressing legal and safety issues, enforcing restrictions that are applicable to a particular residential area, and providing residents with a platform to address common concerns of the community.
