Florida Home Owners Associations.
Home Owners Associations are found in almost every major community and development throughout Florida. Kissimmee and St. Cloud Florida have them as well. You either love them or hate them. In some Osceola County Planned Communities the HOA’s are more restrictive than others.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF AN HOA?
The main purpose for establishing a homeowners association was to ensure conformity much like deed restrictions.
Examples of conformity are:
Paint colors–Some HOA’s require filing the color codes for exterior paint colors on homes for instance.
Fences– If permitted at all; must conform to a certain height, use of only certain fencing materials, may or may not be wood and if they are only certain stain colors may be permitted.
When the roof may need to be cleaned.
How tall the grass can be, or what type of shrubs can be planted. How many cars one can be parked and where parking is permitted.
Boats (most do not want them in driveways) may state the boat must garaged and vehicles with signs are often not allowed.
RV’s- May or may not be permitted.
Home businesses–Even though operating a home business may be permitted in the County, a particular HOA may have rules in place against. The HOA would in that case prevail.
Business vehicles, vehicles with signs on them (even magnetic ones) Rules pertaining to parking in the driveway.
By instituting strict rules and regulations home owners who live there must abide by, or face fines & penalties. For instance a particular kind of mail box is permitted. Specific paint colors of houses are permitted. Fences may or may nor be permitted, and the type , height and style of the fence may be restricted. Many HOA’s have architectural Review Committees which are volunteers who oversee non builder improvements, renovations, or alterations to the property located within the subdivision.
Home Owner Associations often come with Deed Restrictions. Deed Restrictions are filed at the time the development is built and they serve to establish basic conditions to residents who chose to live there.
In St Cloud Florida there are several communities that have Home Owners Associations. Harmony, Steven’sPlantation, Ashton Park, Lake Pointe, Keystone Pointe, Majestic Oaks, Lake Ajay, Anthem Park, In Kissimmee they are everywhere including Celebration, & Reunion, & Kissimmee Bay.
So the question here is: Do you want a Home Owner’s Association or not. This is a consideration when looking to buy a St. Cloud or Kissimmee Florida home.
Added Note: Some also restrict the use of For Sale Signs- sellers are discovering how this policy impedes their ability to sell their homes. Buyers are encouraged to find out specific restrictions before purchasing a home in a community with a Home Owners Association so that you have all the information in advance.
