Q & A - How Long will we pay for an HOA?

This is an important thing to consider when shopping for a home!  HOA dues generally don't go away, and will increase over time.  Please stop by the original post to leave a comment.

 

 

HOA - how long do they reside in a community?I was helping a potential buyer trying to decide what community they wanted to live and the question was posed -
    If a community has an HOA, does it stop in 20 years, or when does the HOA stop making rules for those homeowners?

 

GOOD QUESTION, and one I did not have an immediate answer for.  I found out they are permanently in place.

 

However, there is no blanket answer for all questions either, as it differs with every HOA and will spell it out in the governing documents.     You will find this information in the Declarations and is usually written by the builders or developers per development.     In these declarations it will also state how to modify or resolve any HOA issues.  The declarations is the Bible and prevails over bylaws or regulations.

 

However, this is not as easy as it sounds.    It will spell out the exact procedure to follow, but will take a 2/3 super majority to change anything in the declarations.   

 

In a detached housing community, the HOA is responsible for the watering of entries and common areas, perimeter fencing and trash collection with recycling.     In a multi-family complex (condos & townhomes) there are other items to include - clubhouse, pools, fitness facility, tennis courts, exterior building and roofing, insurance, water/sewer, trash and grounds maintenance.   Downtown lofts may have concierge services, hot tubs, grilling areas and fire pits.

 

Unless there is severe action taken by homeowners in a detached home community, you most likely will have a governing body (HOA) in a community permanently.
