The Briargate Community Association, Inc. is a non-profit corporation chartered under the laws of the State of Texas. Membership is mandatory and each owner automatically becomes a member of the Association upon acquiring a home in the Briargate Community. The Association is governed by the “Declaration of Covenants and Conditions” and operates according to the by-laws of the Association.
One of the major responsibilities of the Association is to protect your investment and enhance the value of your property. The sustained value of your home is of great interest to you. The Community Association exists to establish, maintain, and enforce mutually beneficial restrictions. These restrictions are necessary for the purpose of protecting the value and desirability of all property within Briargate. If the Association functions well, it is our opinion that the lifestyle you have chosen and your property values will be maintained. Each homeowner is involved in the Association in some manner.
We encourage you to take an active role by serving on a committee. Success of your Community Association is dependent upon the involvement of homeowners such as you.
The Association provides for the maintenance and operation of the common areas and facilities such as landscaped areas, swimming pools, playgrounds, parks, playground equipment and tennis courts. The Association is also responsible for enforcing the protective covenants. The Association may do anything lawful to protect, beautify or benefit the property under its jurisdiction, such as care for vacant and unkempt lots, pay for the cost of maintaining the common areas, operation of street lights, lighting at entry ways, publication of the newsletter, welcome packages, security, administration expenses, etc.
The Association collects an annual assessment from the owners of each lot. This assessment is due by January 1st. Any assessment not paid within thirty (30) days after the due date shall bear interest from the date. Assessments, late charges, costs and reasonable attorney’s fees, shall be a charge on the land and d shall be a continuing lien upon the property. The Association may bring an action at law against the owners personally obligated to pay the same, or foreclose the lien against the property.
A Board of seven (7) Trustees, and the committees they appoint manage the affairs of the Association. Lot owners are members of the Association, and entitled to one vote per lot. The Board of Trustees elects the Association’s officers annually. The Board of Trustees is required to determine the policies of the Association.
