This is where the Homeowner’s Association comes in (HOA). Created by the developer, their intent is to maintain the quality of the neighborhood. Typically, once a certain number of homes have been sold, the developer turns the HOA over to the community and it becomes the neighborhoods job to enforce the standards. HOAs have different functions and capacities. In the Heron Bay Golf & Country Club, the Homeowner’s Association is run by the developer, Minerva Properties.
