Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is a Homeowner's Association?
A: It is a non-profit corporation registered with the State and managed by a duly elected Board of Directors.  Its purpose is to maintain all common areas and to govern the community in accordance with the provision of the legal documents: CC&R's, Bylaws, and Articles of Incorporation.  The corporation is financially  supported by all members of the Homeowner's Association.  Membership is both automatic and mandatory.

Q: What are the CC&Rs?
A: The Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs) are the governing legal documents that set up the guidelines for the operation of the planned community as a non-profit corporation.  The CC&Rs were recorded by the County Recorder's office of the county in which the property is located and are included in the title to your property.  CC&Rs are a legal document attached to the title of your home that you agreed to abide by when purchasing the home.  Failure to abide by the CC&Rs may result in a fine to a homeowner by the Association.

Q: What are the Bylaws?
A: The Bylaws are the guidelines for the operation of the non-profit corporation.  The Bylaws define the duties of the various offices of the Board of Directors, the terms of the Directors, the membership's voting rights, required meetings and notices of the meetings, and the principal office of the Association, as well as other specific items that are necessary to run the Association as a business.

Q: What is the Board of Directors?
A: The Homeowner's Association again is a corporation and therefore a governing body that is required to oversee its business.  The Board of Directors is elected by the homeowners, or as otherwise specified in the Bylaws.  The limitation and restrictions of the powers of the Board of Directors is outlined in the Association governing documents found on the Weatherby Estates HOA website.

Q: Are there any other rules?
A: Your HOA has Rules and Regulations as provided for in the CC&Rs and adopted by the Board of Directors.  Rules are established to provide direction to the homeowners for common courtesies with regard to parking, vehicles, pets, out buildings, etc.  In addition, the HOA will adopt Architectural Guidelines with procedures for submitting requests to make exterior changes to your home.  Such changes may include patio covers, decks, landscaping, exterior color changes or additions.  These rules and guidelines are set up to maintain the aesthetic value and integrity of the community on behalf of all owners, and hopefully protect the market value of your investment as well.  Violations of these rules may result in action by the Board of Directors and a fine.  In addition, if you proceed with an exterior improvement or change, without written approval of the Board of Directors, or Architectural Committee, as applicable, you will be required to remove or correct the alteration and/or be fined for the violation.
