The Parks of Deer Creek is a not-for-profit corporation created by the developer at the time the property was developed, platted and presented to the city. The developer created Articles of Incorporation and chartered the organization in the State of Texas and it is required to follow the dictates of Texas Business Code as well as the Texas Property Statute.
The Declaration, also known as the Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CCRs) are created and filed of record at the time the development begins. In other words, the RULES and REGULATIONS (Declaration) are created by the developer. In the case of Parks of Deer Creek, our Association, The Declaration, Bylaws and CCRs were ‘filed of record’ December 1999. Apart from a very few amendments created by a change in the Texas Property Code, the By Laws have not changed since that time.
The Bylaws are established for the community to Regulate itself, states requirements for meetings, Quorum, how directors and officers are elected, etc,
Board of Directors
A Board of Directors are volunteer homeowners who run for election and are voted into office by the members of the HOA for the purpose of preserving property value, maintaining common areas, enforcing the CCRs, overseeing the finances, maintaining insurance coverage, approving committees, executing contracts and other tasks as needed to protect and preserve the community.
The Parks of Deer Creek governing documents describe a member as a legal owner of a specific lot and block parcel within the association.
Only those individuals who own property in the HOA are members of the HOA. HOA membership is mandatory and automatic with the purchase of property within the HOA. The HOA itself does not change; Management may change but the HOA remains constant and members change as property is bought and sold within the community.
If you rent/lease property within the HOA, it is the responsibility of your landlord to attach a copy of our Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions to your lease. While living within the HOA, you must abide by the rules and regulations.
TENANTS DO NOT PAY HOA DUES. Only a homeowner is responsible to the association for annual dues. All issues regarding your home must be handled through your landlord with whom you have a contract. The owner of the home will work with the HOA directly as a member of the HOA. The HOA has no contract and no affiliation with a tenant in the subdivision. Questions should be directed to your landlord and the owner may address management with questions as a homeowner.
All members of the HOA are required to pay assessments. Assessments must be kept current in order for members to retain voting status and the right to use common facilities. Management is responsible for collecting and keeping track of assessments and management would be the contact for anyone with questions about their dues.
