  • Are Board Meetings open to all residents? If so, where and when are they held?

    The Old Stone Crossing board welcomes and encourages OSC homeowners to attend our board meetings. These meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month starting at 6:30 PM at the OSC Clubhouse located at 16516 Silversword Dr, Charlotte, NC 28213. The first 30 minutes of the meeting are open to our homeowners so they can ask questions, make recommendations or discuss issues that affect our neighborhood. 
     
    After the community portion of the meeting is over the board will then close the meeting to the members and go into Executive sessions to address issues involving privileged information and matters of a private nature such as community foreclosures, liens and contracts. 
  • Are there any other rules?


    Our association has developed Rules and Regulations as provided for in the CC&R's and adopted by the Board of Directors. Rules are established to provide direction to the homeowners for common courtesies with regard to parking, vehicles, pets and pool use hours, etc. In addition, our Association has adopted Architectural Guidelines with procedures for submitting requests to make exterior changes to your home. Such changes may include patio covers, decks, landscaping, exterior color changes and additions.
     
    These rules and guidelines are set up to maintain the aesthetic value and integrity of the community on behalf of all owners, and hopefully protect the market value of your investment as well. Violations of these rules may result in action by the Board of Directors and a fine. In addition, if you proceed with an exterior improvement or change, without written approval of the Board of Directors, or Architectural Committee, as applicable, you will be required to remove or correct the alteration and/or be fined for the violation. For more information about this topic visit the Resource Center page of this site.
     
  • How is the amount of my assessment determined?
    The budget is set upon specific guidelines for utilities, landscaping, administration, etc. Reserve funds are monies set aside for future expenses due to the life expectancy of certain items: lighting, street resurfacing, pool equipment, etc. These amounts are then divided by the number of units in the development. Budgets are developed by the Board of Directors and adjusted periodically to meet anticipated expenses.

    If residents cannot resolve a situation between themselves, then turn to your Association.

If the situation is deemed in violation of the Policies and Guidelines, the Board of Directors will institute the enforcement policy.

  • What are assessments and when are they due?

  • What are the Bylaws?
     
    The Bylaws are the guidelines for the operation of the non-profit corporation. The Bylaws define the duties of the various offices of the Board of Directors, the terms of the Directors, the membership's voting rights, required meetings and notices of meetings, and the principal office of the Association, as well as other specific items that are necessary to run the Association as a business. The Bylaws for the association may be viewed online within the Resource Center page of this site.
     
  • What are the CC&R'S?
     
    The Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&R's) are the governing legal documents that set up the guidelines for the operation of the planned community as a non-profit corporation. The CC&R's were recorded by the County recorder's office of the County in which the property is located and are included in the title to your property. Failure to abide by the CC&R's may result in a fine to a homeowner by the Association. The governing legal documents for the association may be viewed online within the Resource Center page of this site.
     
  • What happens if I don't pay my assessment?
     
    The maintenance and management services incurred by the Association are dependent upon timely receipt of the assessments due from each homeowner. Late payments will result in a late charge as assessments are due on a specific date. In addition, the CC&R's allows the Association to charge late charges and interest and proceed with a lien on your property, or foreclosure proceeding for nonpayment of assessments.
  • What is a homeowner's association?
     
    It is a non-profit corporation registered with the State and managed by a duly elected Board of Directors. Its purpose is to maintain all common areas and to govern the community in accordance with the provision of the legal documents: CC&R's, Bylaws, and Articles of Incorporation. The governing legal documents for the association may be viewed online within the Resource Center page of this site or by clicking here.
     
    The corporation is financially supported by all members of the homeowners association. Membership is both automatic and mandatory.
     
     
  • What is a property management company?

     

    A management company is contracted by the Board of Directors to provide such services as: Collection of assessments, supervision of subcontractors, obtaining bids for subcontracted services, providing financial statements and collection reports, as well as a general clearing house for problem solving, communications with homeowners and the Board of Directors and to serve in an advisory capacity. The management company reports directly to the Board and all decisions are made by a majority vote of the Board of Directors. The management company may be reached online through the Contact Us page on this website or by phone from the number listed on the front of our Web Page. 

  • What is the Board of Directors?
     
    The Homeowner's Association again is a corporation and therefore a governing body that is required to oversee its business. The Board of Directors is elected by the homeowners, or as otherwise specified in the bylaws. The limitation and restrictions of the powers of the Board of Directors is outlined in the Association governing documents found within the Resource Center page of this site.

  • Will my assessment go up?
    There is no concrete answer to this. Typically the governing documents provides for annual increases, but not to exceed a certain amount per year without the vote of the membership. The Board of Directors may approve an increased budget, increasing your assessment up to this percentage in order to cover increased costs of operating and maintaining the common area and sufficient reserve funds.
     

    Section 3. Maximum Annual Assessments. Until January 1, 2003, the maximum annual assessment for each Home Site shall be $420.00.

    (a) From and after January 1, 2003, the maximum annual assessment for each Home Site may be increased or decreased by the Board of Directors effective January 1 of each year, without a vote of the membership, but subject to the limitation that the percentage of any such increase shall not exceed 10% of the maximum assessment for each Home Site for the previous year. In the event the maximum assessment for each Home Site is not increased for any particular year or years, the amount which it might have been increased for such year shall be added to the maximum amount the assessment could be increased for each succeeding year, to the effect that the maximum increase shall be cumulative for the current year and all prior years.
