When we purchased our home as new construction in our new subdivision, we were never notified verbalWhen we purchased our home as new construction in our new subdivision, we were never notified verbally or in any of our purchase or closing paperwork anything about an HOA fee or HOA for that matter. We have lived here almost 9 months and just got an copy of the covenants and HOA documents for the subdivision that all of the houses built here recently have been getting. We had no idea this was part of the subdivision and it was never disclosed to us. The developer states that by forming and paying the HOA fees, it will keep our property taxes lower. Is this true? What rights do we have as homeowners not knowing about the formation of this HOA when we built the house? We weren't expecting an extra fee to have to pay monthly or yearly when we purchased this home and feel misled, nor were we expecting to be forced to join an HOA.July 27 2010 - Billings00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
