Emerald Hills Realtors® Information
Emerald Hills would like to extend a warm
welcome to all Realtors® who list properties
in our community. Our Homeowners Association
realizes that we have a complementary relationship
and many common goals. Paramount among these
is the desire to maintain and enhance the
quality and value of properties within Emerald
There are several things that Realtors® (and
owners) need to know when selling or purchasing
a home in Emerald Hills. Highlighted keywords
in the text below below can be 'clicked on'
allowing display of relevant material.
- A Disclosure Packet MUST be obtained from 'Association & Property Management Services' to release a property for resale. Listing
agents are urged to order this package early
to prevent a delayed closure. The package
includes an HOA release to assure that no
outstanding violations or legal action is
pending. Agents are advised to check on this
if not included.
- Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CC&R's) - Copies of our covenants and restrictions
are posted one our website on the covenants page. Realtors® are encouraged to familiarize
themselves with our governing documents and
to prepare a copy for perspective buyers.
These documents are well supported by our
residents and actively enforced by our Homeowners
Association, resulting in the beautiful community
that we enjoy today. Covenants are organized
by subdivision section which can be obtained
either from our Subdivision map or the properties for sale (Sec column) report.
- By Laws of Emerald Hills Association, Inc. - These are Bylaws of Emerald Hills Homeowners
Association, Inc.(the “Association), a Virginia
Nonstock Corporation, which was organized
under the Laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia
with Articles of Incorporation which were
filed in the office of the Clerk of the State
Corporation Commission and subject to the
Amended and Restated Declaration affecting
the land and all residential improvements
thereon known as Emerald Hills Subdivision,
Sections 1-6 and all annexations and additions
- Most recent Annual and Quarterly financial reports may be obtained from 'Association & Property Management Services' .
- Annual Assessments - Each property owner (based on each lot, not home) of record as of July 1st
each year is sent an invoice for any past
balance and current assessment to cover the
period starting on July 1st and ending June
30th of the following year. Our Emerald Hills
HOA does not collect "partial dues payments"
for re-sold properties. If a property in
our neighborhood is re-sold during the fiscal
period, the real estate "Closing attorney"
should pro-rate a credit to the property
owner. This is similar to how property taxes
are handled, and should be reflected on the
closing statement. The amount of assessment
is typically set during the first quarter
of each year by the Board of Directors. This
amount will vary from year to year.
- Signs -
- Only one sign of not more than five (5) square
feet advertising the property for sale or
rent or a sign used by the builder to advertise
the property during construction is allowed
on a property.
- No signs are permitted on association common
areas, including the community front entrance,
without board approval. Non-approved signs
will be removed at the Realtors® expense.
- Resident Information - Information that may be of interest to
prospective buyers can be found on our resident information page. Most of this information will be included
in a welcome package that is presented to
new residents as soon as possible after they
move in. Realtors® are requested to inform
our webmaster via our contact us page of closing and estimated move-in dates
to assist us in delivering welcome packages.
Our neighborhood welcome person can be contacted
