Fun Facts About SomercrestLearn More
An HOA is a nonprofit corporation, registered in the State of Texas. Developments like Somercrest, with common areas and private roads, are required to establish an HOA to maintain the common areas and enforce covenants, restrictions and rules applicable to the community. They have the role of a town counsel.
Every homeowner, by virtue of his lot ownership in Somercrest is a member (or shareholder) of the HOA. Board members are elected from among all eligible homeowners (current on dues typically). Under the Bylaws, which govern the HOA (available here - add link), the election of Board members are held annually at the Association annual meeting to fill vacancies (was never filled or a Board member sold their home), if they exist, or for Board seats that have reached the end of their term limit. In newer communities, such as Somercrest, developers typically appoint board members under the Bylaws but this phases out over time as lots are developed and sold to private homeowners.
When most people refer to an "HOA' they are referring to the Board of Directors of the HOA. They are corporate officers charged with preserving the common areas, providing common services like common area maintenance and trash removal, and enforcing the restrictive covenants applicable to all community lots., landscaping, and in some community road and lighting maintenance. Under the Bylaws they do this by hiring a management company who run day-to-day operations, hire contractors to maintain the community, and collect due from homeowners.
