  • A. What is a homeowner's association?
    It is a non-profit corporation registered with the State and managed by a duly elected Board of Directors.  It's 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 governing legal documents for the association may be viewed online within the Document Center page of this site.  The corporation is financially supported by all members of the homeowner's association.  Membership is both automatic and mandatory.
  • B. What is a "management company", what do they do, and how do I reach them?
    A: A management company is contracted by the Board of Directors to provide such services as: Collection of assessments, supervision of subcontractors, obtaining bids for subcontracted services, providing financial statements and collection reports, as well as a general clearing house for problem solving, communications with homeowners and the Board of Directors and to serve in an advisor capacity.  Foxcroft East has chosen Greenway Realty Management Company as our management company.  They can be reached online through the contact us page - select "Management Company" as the recipient or by phone at 704-940-0847.
     
  • C. What are the Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions (CC&Rs)?
    The Covenants, Conditions & Restictions (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.  Failure to abide by the CC&Rs may result in a fine to a homeowner by the Association.  The governing legal documents for the association may be viewed online within the Document Center section of this site.
  • D. What are the Bylaws?
    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 meetings, and the principal office of the Association, as well as other specific items that are necessary to run the Association as a business.  The Bylaws for the association may be viewed online within the Document Center page of this site.
  • E. Are there any other rules?
    most associatinos have developed Rules and Regulations as provided for in the CC&R's and dopted by the Board of Directors.  Rules are established to provide direction to the homowners for common courtesies with regards to land use, general nuisance, animals, and clothes drying.  In addition, Architectural Guidelines and Fence Policy with procedures for submitting requests to make exterior changes to your home have been developed. Both the guidelines & policy are set up to maintain the aesthetic value and integrity of the neighborhood 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 FEHA, which could include fines, and sometimes even liens against your property.  In addition, if you proceed wiht an exterior improvement or change, without written approavl of the Architectural Review Committee (ARC), as applicable, you may be required to remove or correct the alteration and/or be fined for the violation.  For more information about this topic visit the Architectural Review section of this site.   
  • F. What is the Board of Directors?
    The Homeowner's Association 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 within the Document Center page of this site.
  • G. Are Board Meetings open to all residents? If so, where and when are they held?
    Yes, board meetings are open to the residents.  The meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month, except in July and December starting at 7:30pm.  The Board meets in the Ligon Hall at Carmel Presbyterian Church at the corner of Carmel Road and Sharon View.
  • H. How can I get involved with the Board?
    If you are interested in volunteering, please contact any board member listed in the HOA Board section of this site or fill out the online Contact Us form of this site.   New Board members are typically elected during the Annual Member Meeting of this association during January.  Reminders and notices about the meeting are sent to all homeowners during December of the year prior. 
  • I. If I am having a problem with a neighbor for a violation of the Policies and Guidelines, what can I do?
    If residents cannot resolve a situation between themselves, then turn to the FEHA.  Should you have a situatino that does not appear to be resolved through neighborly means, and you are willing to actively participate in the enforcement provided by the Policies and Guidelines, then we ask that you contact Greenway Realty Management (our association management company).  They can be reached either by selecting the "Management Company" option in the Contact Us section of this site or by calling the number provided in the HOA Board Member listing. 
  • J. What is an assessment?
    The FEHA may issue assessments as needed from each homeowner to cover the operating expenses of the common area and provide for reserve funds for replacement of common facilities in future years.  Assessments are not something the Board enters into lightly.  Every effort is made to avoid having to resort to this type of funding source.  However, if an assessment is, in the Board's opinion, required, it would be due at the same time as yearly homeowners dues are collected.  The last assessment charged was back in 199? in response to demand incurred to the fences and paths by Hurricane Hugo.
  • K. Will may homeowner dues go up?
    There is no concrete answer to this.  The Foxcroft East Bylaws allow for a maxium 10% increase in homeowner dues in any one year.  The Board of Directors may approve an increased budget, thus having to raise dues.  The Board makes every effort to exercise fiscal responsiblity and manage within the existing budget.  Dues have not been raised in the neighborhood in over 10 years.
  • L. What happens if I don't pay my dues or assessments?
    The maintenance and management services incurred by the Association are dependent upon timely receipt of the homeowner dues and assessment (when  charged) from each homeowner.  Late payments will result in a late charge as they are due in January every year.  In addition, the CC&R's allows the FEHA to charge late charges and interest and proceed with a lien on your property, or foreclosure proceeding for non-payment.
