What is a homeowners’ association?
*A homeowners’ association is a non-profit entity established for the communal benefit of its members. Each owner, by virtue of purchase within the community, is automatically a member of the Association, in most cases. One of the main purposes of each Association is to provide for maintenance and upkeep of its community, thereby keeping high or increasing property values while promoting demand for residency.
How am I a mandatory member of the Homeowners Association?
*Each owner, by purchase of a lot or home within the Association, is agreeing to be covenanted by those Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions established for and filed in the community’s county of record. Blue Hawk Management retains updated copies of these documents in an online account document repository for your convenience.
What do my Assessments pay for and where does that money go?
*Assessments are established by either the Board of Directors or Declarant prior to each fiscal period for the Association. Members are required to pay for those Assessments. Each Assessment is budgeted in accordance with each and all operational expenditures. Such expenditures could include, but are not limited to: landscaping improvements, insurance, maintenance contracts, management, administrative costs, social events, utility costs, reserve account deposits, etc. Each member has a right to review the approved operational budget, and Blue Hawk Management would be pleased to provide you with your own copy.
What does the management company do?
*Blue Hawk Management is a third-party agent to your Association, hired to assist in performing the obligations and objectives as described in your Association’s Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions. Management works with your governing body (Board of Directors or Declarant) to provide certain services, consultation and guidance. Our services are performed under Board of Director approval or direction.
Who are the Board of Directors?
*The Board of Directors are the governing body of the Association and have control of all affairs. Board members are typically elected at your Association’s annual membership meeting. Each board member holds a specified term in office, as described in your Bylaws. Officers, such as President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer, are internally elected by each Board member.
How do I access the amenities?
*Contact our office. Your management team will have the specifics on how to either obtain an access card or other necessary forms or equipment for reservations, etc.
Do we have a website?
*Each association managed by Blue Hawk Management has a free, public website. Each website domain will be titled as a sub-domain such as “goodhoa.bluehawkmgmt.net”. It is most commonly your community’s name, followed by our domain name. Occasionally, a custom domain name may be purchased to mask the above example for ease of access. Please contact our office to learn more.

How do I tell on my neighbor?

How can I help and get involved?
*Let us know by phone, email, Resident Request or chat! Your management team has direct contact with your Board of Directors, and they would love to let them know we have a new volunteer to help out with a committee or other initiative.
Do we have community events?
