Covenants and the Rights of Our Owners:
Some people hate covenants. Some accept them and some love them. Regardless of your thinking, studies have found that when in the market for a new home, it is best to look for a community with rules and regulations; i.e. covenants. The more realistic and comprehensive the rules, the more desirable the community will be. In this season of resolutions, we all must continue to resolve to respect the covenants and the rights of our neighbors. Only through cooperation and respect can we continue to maintain and enhance the appearance of Magnolia Point.
The key word is Respect. They say that “a man's home is his castle,” but in certain areas moats may not be permitted. There is a process to follow when alterations to a home or property are contemplated and we must adhere to it. There are covenants that govern the appearance of one's castle and we must obey them. The covenants are very clear and very fair and it is obviously in everyone's best interest to see that they are enforced.
Covenants to Live By:
As long as we homeowners keep thinking "We" and not "I", Magnolia Point will continue to be considered one of the more prestigious places to reside in the area.
Community Handbook of Covenants and Guidelines
Every homeowner should have a copy of the Magnolia Point Community Handbook. If you would like a copy of the handbook you can either print one using the link above, or obtain a copy from the Community Association Manager (CAM) at [email protected].
The following excerpts from the Community Handbook do not represent the Association’s Declaration of Covenants in their entirety. The Association’s Governing Documents always take precedence over this representation and the Community Handbook itself.
The Covenants & You:
The Declaration of Covenants is a legal contract between the Developer and the buyer that specifies certain rights, liabilities, and commitments governing the use and occupancy of the property. The Declaration of Covenants runs with the land, is conveyed to new owners at closing, and Florida law presumes that each owner and all subsequent owners of the property have knowledge of its provisions.
As homeowners in Magnolia Point, all have agreed to abide by the Declaration of Covenants. The Declaration protects the community's property values and homeowners' quality of life by providing architectural harmony and preventing unsightly appearances and nuisances. These are important rights and benefits, and most homeowners abide by them and want them enforced.
Our Covenants are enforceable. Florida Statute 720 provides that each Association member and the member's tenants, guests, and invitees are governed by, and must comply with, the covenants and the rules of the Association. Actions at law or in equity, or both, to redress alleged failure or refusal to comply with these provisions may be brought by the Association or by any member against:
(a) The Association;
(b) A member;
(c) Any director or officer of an association who willfully and knowingly fails to comply with these provisions; and
(d) Any tenants, guests, or invitees occupying a parcel or using the common areas.
A fine may be levied on the basis of each day of continuing violation, with a single notice and opportunity for hearing, except that no such fine shall exceed $1,000 in total unless otherwise provided in the governing documents. A fine or suspension may not be imposed without notice of at least 14 days to the person sought to be fined or suspended and an opportunity for a hearing before a committee of at least three members appointed by the board.
