What is a homeowners association?

A homeowner’s association, also known as a Common Interest Development (CID), is the non-profit entity under which community governance structure is established and operated. Associations are established with the intent of protecting the community assets instituting prudent physical and financial maintenance practices. Decisions concerning association operations are made by a volunteer Board of Directors elected by the community residents during the annual membership meeting.

What is the role of the Northwood Pointe Maintenance Association?

Northwood Pointe is sometimes referred to as the "Master Association" because the residences within the Northwood Pointe Maintenance Association include all of the residences within each Sub-Association.   There are currently twelve (12) "Sub-Associations":  Trailwood, Rosegate, Northwood Villas, Canyon View, Arborcrest, Georgetown, Lexington, Lanesend, Arborcrest II, Somerton, Collage and Arden Square.

The Northwood Pointe Maintenance Association is responsible for maintaining and preserving the property that belongs to the Northwood Pointe Maintenance Association and enforcing the rules of the Northwood Pointe Maintenance Association.

What is the role of the managing agent?

As the Board of Directors is comprised of volunteers, it is generally a good idea as fiduciary for an entire group of homeowners to hire a managing agent specializing in association operations. Professional management firms possess knowledge of changing legislation affecting non-profit corporations and understand fiscal as well as physical management requirements of these entities. The scope of services provided by a managing agent will vary based on the needs of each Association. Contractual management duties may include preparation of financial statements, collection of dues, coordination with maintenance vendors, bid and proposal acquisition.

The Board has engaged Keystone Pacific Property Management, Inc. as the Northwood Pointe Maintenance Association management company. Northwood Pointe compensates Keystone Pacific for its services, including certain financial and accounting services, from a portion of the dues paid by homeowners in the
Northwood Pointe Maintenance Association. Keystone Pacific is available to answer homeowner questions regarding Northwood Pointe Maintenance Association matters and to receive homeowner comments and suggestions. If a matter raised by a homeowner requires Board action, Keystone Pacific will refer that matter to the Board for review. In addition, in order for the Board to keep abreast of homeowner comments and suggestions, Keystone Pacific provides copies of all homeowner correspondence to the Board.

Do I have to belong to the Association and pay the monthly assessment?

All persons owning a unit or lot within a community association automatically become a member of the Association and are required to pay the monthly assessment. Non-payment could result in a lien against the home.

What does the monthly assessment pay for?

The monthly assessment covers the operation, maintenance and repairs for which the Association is obligated, per the Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions(CC&R's). Items such as insurance, taxes, water, electricity, landscaping services, pool maintenance, janitorial and even pest control are just a few of the items covered by dues. Dues also cover the funding of reserves which are applied to future repair or replacement of major components for which the Association is responsible, such as pool refurbishment in a planned unit development. A budget summary is mailed to each homeowner on an annual basis outlining where dues are spent.
