Oak Creek Leander, TX Homeowners Association
The Oak Creek subdivision located north Leander, Texas, does have an HOA (Homeowners Assocation).
An HOA is a legal entity created to manage and maintain the common areas of a subdivision community. These common areas are usually items like front entrances, street landscaping, the pool and clubhouse (if the community has one) and possibly streets, roads and (sometimes) even the streetlights.
The homeowners association is composed of all of the homes, including single-family homes and multiple dwelling units, located within the subdivision. There are usually absolutely no exceptions – if a homeowner purchases a home located within a community with an HOA, then that homeowner becomes a part and member of the HOA. The HOA is usually started by the developer of the subdivision. After all (or most) of the homes are sold in the subdivision, the developer will transfer legal ownership of the HOA to the homeowners of the community.
When the HOA is created, a set of documents are created with a set of rules for homeowners called the “Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions” otherwise known as “CC&Rs”.
One of the primary reasons for the HOA to exist and function is to enforce and ensure that the “CC&Rs” are followed by the homeowners. Overall, the general reason for the HOA CC&R’s is to to help maintain property values and the general quality of life and appearance within the community.
