YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES

Being a Homeowner in Poinciana

When you purchase a home in Poinciana, you are advised at the closing (or before) that your home is located in a deed-restricted community. A deed-restricted community is one where the community has a homeowners association that has rules and regulations pertaining to the use of land and the appearance of the neighborhood. Usually, it is initiated by the developer. 

The homeowners association in Poinciana is the Association of Poinciana Villages, established in 1972 by the developer Avatar. 

As soon as you sign for your home you agree to become a member of the Association of Poinciana Villages, often referred to as APV. As the members of the association, you agreed to abide by the covenants of the association as laid out in the   Deed of Restriction/Subdivision Declaration , and also the Design Control Documents. 

The Basics

The Association of Poinciana Villages is governed by a Board of Directors which consists of 9 members (one from each village) that are voted in by the homeowners of each village. Elections are held every year on the 2nd Tuesday in February. When this board is seated they follow the rules and guidelines set forth in the document called the By-Laws.

As a homeowner  and member of the Association of Poinciana Villages you have invested in all that is Poinciana, including its beautiful parks, ball fields, buildings and landscaping. Your investment is paid in the form of annual assessments. A yearly budget is voted on by the Board of Directors in October of each year. This budget is divided equally between every home/property owner in Poinciana. This will become your yearly assessment obligation. Assessments are due on January 1st of every year. There is a 15 day grace period before your assessments are considered past due. The assessment amount due the first of every month. If paid after the 15th of the Month a $25.00 late fee will be imposed. After the last day of the month your account may be sent to collections without notice.
