The Declaration of Covenants is the legal document that lays out the guidelines for the Association and community. It basically describes the rules of the neighborhood. It’s goal is to protect, preserve, and enhance property values in the community.

The Declaration of Covenants specify the HOA’s authority and obligations, as well as defining the rights and responsibilities of the homeowners. When a home is purchased, the owner signs a document that states they have read the Covenants and agree to abide by them. The HOA enforces the Covenant rules. Upon violations, the HOA may impose penalties such as fines or forced compliance.

It also defines the types of required dues, assessments, and penalties for non-payment (such as late charges and interest). The HOA may get a lien against a home for failure to pay dues and assessments.
