Governing Documents

Legacy Grove Homeowners Association uses several types of governing documents to guide our operations. These describe the rights and obligations of each owner and those of the association itself. They describe the maintenance responsibilities of each owner and those assumed by the HOA, the operating costs to the owners and how they will be collected. Additionally, they lay out the HOA's powers of enforcement, procedures to resolve disputes and the restrictions on owner usage, which include regulations governing pets, how an owner alters the property and the uses of the common area.

Legacy Grove Homeowner Handbook


The Handbook has been generated to assist as a quick reference guide for homeowners to use when they have questions about the most common concerns as homeowners.

Disclaimer:  This “Handbook” does not replace, add to or take away from the governing Documents of the Legacy Grove Homeowners’ Association. For greater depth and detail refer to the appropriate contents of the Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws, Restrictive Covenants, Amendments and Resolutions.

By Laws


HOA bylaws, not to be confused with CC&Rs, describe the procedures and mechanics of homeowners association management and decision-making. This includes officer and director positions and how they are filled, the way meeting, voting and notification are undertaken for owners' and board members' decisions and the methods of record-keeping and reporting.

Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs)


When dealing with a homeowners' association (HOA), it is important to understand their Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs). These describe the rights and obligations of each owner and those of the association itself, and may vary significantly in both what they say and how long they are.

Please check the resolutions for any additional guidelines enacted by the Board of Directors or voted by the homeowners. 

Why are There Covenants?

Articles of Incorporation


Often called "the articles," these are typically short documents that set the name of the HOA, assert that it is a nonprofit mutual-benefit corporation and identify its initial agent, the individual authorized to receive legal notices on the HOA's behalf.
