The Association is a non-profit incorporated community association-a group of condominium owners and residents bound together by a First Amended and Restated Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions for the purpose of owning, operating and maintaining commonly owned property and preserving community standards.
As an owner of property in the Las Brisas Hills Condominiums Association, you automatically become a member of the Association. As such, you are subject to the Articles of Incorporation, Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions, By-Laws and Rules and Regulations of the community.
Membership entitles you to the use of facilities (both pool areas) and all voting privileges in the Association. Membership also subjects you to all the duties, obligations, restrictions and liabilities of an owner and member under the Master Declaration, including payment of dues and assessments.
The homeowner(s) of each condominium unit shall be entitled to cast one (1) vote per unit. Where more than one owner owns and holds a record interest in the unit, e.g. husband and wife, they may cast the one vote as they deem appropriate. There is no fractional or cumulative voting in the Association.
The dues and assessment payments are an unconditional obligation of each condominium owner. The amount of delinquent dues and assessments, any late charges and collections costs, is the personal liability of record and a continuing lien upon the unit. This lien may be foreclosed in a non-judicial proceeding as is provided under the laws of the State of Texas for foreclosure of Deeds of Trust on Texas real estate.
The dues may be increased automatically by a maximum of 20% annually. The Board of Directors for the Las Brisas Hills Condominiums usually increases dues by 2% annually to keep up with inflation and rising contract costs.
The monthly dues include the following services: water, trash, sewer, digital cable services, alarm monitoring services, pest control services, structural insurance, administrative costs, contractual services, professional services, on-site costs, common area utilities, exterior maintenance costs.
Yes, however, all improvements to your unit must comply with the Associations’ documents as well as the Architectural Guidelines and Standards of the community. All exterior modifications require Architectural Approval prior to work being performed.
In the event of a violation, reasonable efforts will be made to obtain the cooperation and agreement of the violator to correct or eliminate the violation. If these efforts do not reach the desired resolution, the Association may seek formal enforcement mechanisms available to it, such as fines, suspension of facility use privileges or legal proceeding and suit for damages.
Residents may enter the community through one of the three vehicle access gates utilizing a gate remote or gate card. An owner or resident may obtain a gate card or remote at the on-site office of the community. There is a $25.00 refundable deposit for every gate card, and a $50.00 refundable deposit for every remote.
Guests must enter the community through the main gate by contacting the owner or resident from the call box. An owner must have a registered local phone number in the gate system in order to allow access to guests. The phone number may be either a land line or a cell phone, but must be a local number. If you do not have a local number you may register for one through google voice. Google voice will provide you a free local number that can be used at the gate system.
Currently, residents are not permitted to hold garage sales in the community. The Las Brisas Hills Condominiums Association has two community wide yard sales. The first yard sale is held in the spring and the second yard sale is held in the fall. All residents of the community are welcome to participate, and there is no fee for the sale.
Pet owners are often either unaware or unconcerned about the disturbance or nuisance to others caused by uncontrollable barking or stray pets. Frequent reminders and newsletter articles are efforts to prevent uncontrolled pet behavior; however, Las Brisas Hills Condominiums Association’s ability to verify incidents and provide assistance beyond City enforcement of the local pet ordinance is limited. Contacting the City or Irving Animal Control at 972-721-2256 is recommended.
The Association’s after hour’s emergency line should be called only in the event of an emergency that could potential cause property damage or pose a liability for the Association. The emergency number for the Association is 214-850-1307.
The pools of the community are usually opened for swimming sometime around the middle of May and closed sometime around the middle of October. The weather determines how early in May the pools will be open and how late in October the pools will be closed.
There are dumpsters around the community that residents can utilize to throw away their trash. Please ensure that all trash is contained in plastic bags prior to throwing in the dumpsters. Owners/residents are not permitted to leave large items next to the dumpsters. Items that fit may be placed in the dumpster; however, items that do not fit in the dumpster must be hauled off the property at the owners/residents expense.
Yes. Owners of the community are able to rent the clubhouse. There is a $125.00 fee for the rental of the clubhouse. There is also a $500.00 refundable deposit required that will be returned upon inspection of the clubhouse following the rental. Any damages as a result of the rental will be deducted from the $500.00 deposit.
