Planned Communities in Hampstead

MARCH 2009: IMPORTANT! This is dated material, and subject to change, update and amendment. Please do not use anything you see and read here the basis for any decision you make or authority in resolving a conflict with your association. ALWAYS get the latest information from an officer in the association. (I am interested in helping make public information accessible, but not interested enough to go up to Burgaw and pay 25 per page to copy the various documents. If you have a copy and would like your HOA covenants listed here, or a link to an existing copy on a website, just let me know and I'll add it here.)

Homeowner Associations exist because property owners in certain neighborhoods, in the absence of municipal government, want a common set of behavior and land use regulations to maintain the quality of life in their neighborhood. To that end, planned community associations are formed with restrictive covenants that 'run with the land' - that is, when you buy a property within an association, you are automatically bound by the rules in effect, the restrictions and covenants. Much of the residential property in the central Hampstead area is composed of the larger HOAs.
