What is a Property Owners Association (POA)?
A property owners association is an organization of
property owners. A buyer may become a
“member” with the purchase of a property or home within the development. Some properties within Foxwood Hills require
action by the property owner to “opt in” to establish Association
membership. If you are unsure as to
your status, please talk with POA office staff.
As a member in good standing, each owner has the right to speak at
Association meetings and to vote on matters that concern the Association. This vote may be cast during the regularly
scheduled annual meeting or at special meetings of the general membership.
The Property Owners Association is an incorporated,
non-profit organization operating under the laws of the state of South Carolina
and recorded land agreements through which each lot owner in a described area
may be a member. Each member is subject
to assessments for maintenance of the common property and to support other
necessary activities of the organization.
What does the POA do?
The major responsibility of the POA is to protect
the assets of the Association. As one
part of its obligation of protecting the owners’ investment, the POA is charged
with the maintenance and operation of the common areas. The common areas of Foxwood Hills include the
areas of Foxwood Hills which are for the common use and enjoyment of all
owners, residents and their guests.
The Association has other responsibilities, too,
• Hiring and overseeing a professional
• Obtaining insurance for the common areas
• Operating an effective communication
system for all members
• Enforcing the covenants, conditions and
• Operating within budgets proposed by the
Board of Directors and approved by the membership, for operations and
• Collecting funds, and
• Accounting and reporting to members
