When a new development is being marketed at startup, the initial HOA operating budget is created based on estimates and projections – the improvements
Everyone knows that subdivisions located in the city limits, with no homeowners associations or common areas, where the developer is selling only completed homes, are exempt from the public report process. The important thing to note, is that they are NOT entirely exempt from Bureau of Real Estate (BRE) jurisdiction. What exactly does the BRE have jurisdiction over in this type of development?
Many of our clients are wary about turning over control of the project entry to the HOA too early in the project’s sale-out phase. Once an improvement is owned by the HOA, it is their responsibility to maintain it, and the Subdivider often prefers to maintain it at a higher level than the HOA would.
