Per CCRs Section 3.01 Membership. Each and every Owner shall automatically be a Member of the Association without the necessity of any further action on such Owner’s part, subject to the terms of this Declaration, the Articles of Incorporation, and the Bylaws. Membership of an Owner in the Association shall be appurtenant to and may not be separated from the interest of such Owner in and to any portion of the Property. Ownership of any portion of the Property shall be the sole qualification for being a Member; provided, however, a Member’s voting rights, as herein described, or privileges in the Common Area or both may be regulated or suspended as provided in this Declaration.

Per CCRs Section 4.02 Purpose of Assessments. The Assessments levied by the Association shall be used, in part, for the purpose of: (1) promoting the recreation, comfort, health, safety and welfare of the Members of the Association and/or the residents of the Property; (2) managing the Common Area; (3) enhancing the quality of life in the Property and the value of the Property, and in particular for the improvement and maintenance of the properties, services and facilities devoted and related to the use and enjoyment of the Property including, but not limited to, the payments of taxes on the Common Area and insurance in connection with the Common Area and the repair, replacement and addition of improvements thereto; (4) for paying the cost of labor and equipment (including the expense of leasing any equipment) with respect to the Common Area; (5) for carrying out the powers and duties of the Board of Directors of the Association as set forth in this Declaration and in the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws, including without limitation, the purchase of insurance coverage pursuant to Article V hereof; and (6) for carrying out the purposes of the Association, as stated in the Articles of Incorporation.

Per CCRs Section 4.03 Annual Assessments. The Board of Directors of the Association shall establish an annual budget in advance for each fiscal year, and such budget shall project all expenses anticipated by the Board of Directors for the purposes described in Section 4.02 and 4.09 of this Declaration. The annual assessment to be levied against the Members of the Association for such fiscal year shall be established by the adoption of such annual budget by the Board of Directors of the Association. However, should such Board of Directors at any time determine, in the sole discretion of such Board of Directors, that the assessments levied are or may prove to be insufficient to pay the costs of the Association for any fiscal year for any reason (including non-payment of assessments by Members of the Association), then the Board of Directors shall have the authority at any time and from time to time levy such additional assessment or assessments as they shall deem to be necessary for that purpose and/or to increase the amount of the annual assessment with respect to the remainder of the applicable fiscal year. Anything contained herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the annual assessment for each Owner shall not exceed $500.00 per year until the beginning of the third (3) fiscal year of the Association.

Each Member of the Association, other than Declarant, agrees to pay an annual assessment to the Association equal to the product of (i) the annual budget established by the Board of Directors of the Association with respect to the applicable fiscal year of the Association, multiplied by (ii) the Proportionate Share attributable to any portion of the Property owned by such Member. In addition, each Member of the Association agrees to pay such Member’s Proportionate Share of any special assessments levied by the Association. All such annual and special assessments shall be paid by the Members of the Association directly to the Association (or to any entity or collection agency designated by the Association).

The failure or delay of the Board of Directors of the Association to prepare or adopt a budget for any year shall not constitute a release or waiver of a Member’s obligation to pay their Proportionate Share of the applicable annual assessment established with respect to such year whenever the same shall be determined; and in the absence of any annual budget, each Member shall continue to pay annual assessments at the rate established for the previous fiscal year until notice of the new payment which is due after such new budget is adopted.

Per CCRs Section 4.08 No Offsets. All Assessments shall be payable in the amount specified by the Association and no offsets against such amount shall be permitted for any reason.

Per CCRs Section 4.10 Nonpayment of Assessments.

(a) Delinquency. Any Assessment provided for in this Declaration which is not paid in full on or before the date (“delinquency date”) which is thirty (30) days after the date upon which such Assessment fist became due and payable shall be deemed delinquent. The Association shall have the right to reject partial payment of an Assessment and demand full payment thereof. If any Assessment or part thereof is not paid on or before the delinquency date, the unpaid amount of such Assessment shall bear interest from the delinquency date until paid at a rate equal to the lesser of eighteen percent (18%) per annum or the maximum lawful rate. Acceptance by the Association of partial payment of any Assessment shall not be deemed to constitute a waiver or forgiveness of the unpaid portion of such Assessment.

(b) Lien. The unpaid amount of any Assessment shall, together with the interest thereon as provided in Section 4.10(a) of this Article IV and the cost of collection thereof, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, as herein provided, constitute a continuing lien and charge on the Lot of the nonpaying Owner subject to such Assessment, which shall bind such Lot in the hands of the owner, and their heirs, executors, administrators, devisees, personal representatives, successors and assigns. The aforesaid lien shall be superior to all other liens and charges against the said real property, except only for tax liens and the lien of any bona fide first lien purchase money or construction mortgage; provided, however, that any such mortgage or deed of trust shall be subject and inferior to the lien securing those past due Assessments for which a written notice of past due Assessments have been recorded in the Official Records of Brazos County, Texas at the time such mortgage or deed of trust is filed of record. The lien for the unpaid Assessments shall be unaffected by any sale or assignment of a Lot and shall continue in full force and effect. Such a sale shall not relieve the Owner of such real property from liability for an Assessment thereafter becoming due nor from the lien of any such subsequent Assessment. To give notice of the aforesaid lien, the Association shall prepare a written notice of lien setting forth the amount of the unpaid indebtedness, the name of the Owners of the real property covered by such lien, as shown on the records of the Association, and a description of the Lot covered by such lien. Such notice shall be executed by one of the officers of the Association and shall be recorded in the Official Records of Brazos County, Texas.

(c) Remedies. The lien securing the payment of the Assessments shall attach to the Lot belonging to the non-paying Owner. The Association may institute an action at law against the Owner or Owners personally obligated to pay the Assessment and/or for the foreclosure of the aforesaid lien by judicial foreclosure. In any foreclosure proceeding the Owner shall be required to pay the costs, expenses and reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred by the Association in connections therewith. In the event an action at law is instituted against the Owner or the Owners personally obligated to pay the Assessment, there shall be added to the amount of any such Assessment the interest provided in this Section 4.10, the costs of preparing and filing the compliant in such action and the reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred in connection with such action; and in the event a judgment is obtained, such judgment shall include interest on the Assessment as provided in this Section 4.10 and a reasonable attorneys’ fee to be fixed by the court, together with the costs of the action. Each Owner vests in the Association and its assigns the right and power to bring all actions at law or in equity (including, without limitation, an action in foreclosure) against such Owner or other Owners for the collection of such delinquent Assessments.
