The UHOA presents featured speakers at our general meetings and Round Table forums whose topics are germane and informative.  We wish to recognize and thank the following individuals that have participated in our speaker series.
Dedicated to preserving,
promoting and improving  the Bloomfield Township Homeowner Associations and our community through united action.
Major Shift in lien Policy
for Special Assessment 
Districts
For Township residents creating a Special Assessment District (SAD) for street improvements, a lien was placed on the property which had to be paid in full upon transferring the property.   We were informed that the Governor recently signed into law that any balance will now treated as an annual assessment, therefore the balance can be assumed by the buyer.  As details become available we will notify our members.

From State of Michigan website
HB 5202, sponsored by state Rep. Mike McCready, gives homeowners increased flexibility when dealing with special assessment liens. Under current law, homeowners that want to sell or refinance their homes must pay off the entire lien in a large lump sum payment. This act limits the amount of a lien on property assessed to the amount of an installment payment.

    "State Legislature Deals Severe Blow to Homeowner Associations"
      In an article published in dbusines Daily News attorney Robert Meisner, recent guest speaker at the UHOA Presidents Round Table forum, takes exception to the recently revised Michigan Nonprofit Corporation Act.  He contends that the new law strips association members of many of the rights guaranteed them under the previous version of the Act.

 Associations Make Emailing Simple
     The problem: Many of our members face the problem that when officers and directors rotate all of the association correspondence is lost since all emails were sent and received in personal email accounts.  Association communications and documents are nearly impossible to recover. 
     Solution: Get a free email account dedicated exclusively to the association, say, yourassociationname@gmail.com. In this manner all incoming correspondence is directed to one address which can be administered by, say, the association secretary. All incoming and outgoing correspondence is permanently retained on file for future directors/officers reference.   Your master email addresses/street address directory can also be maintained in this email program.
     Bonus:  Having a permanent address saves having to constantly update everyone's records each year or when officers/directors rotate.

Our Story


The United Homeowner Associations believes in the value of organized community associations for the value they bring in maintaining property values and the building of the sense of community.  

Why do neighborhoods organize:
  • To address a particular concern.
  • To empower residents.
  • To build community.
  • Achieving neighborhood goals.
  • Provide a common voice.
  • Holding social events.
  • Organizing neighborhood projects.
  • For those that are curious about forming a neighborhood association the UHOA recognizes there is a great deal of information available on the subject, however a place to start for a general overview is here

Guest Speakers at UHOA Functions
The I-75 Square Lake Road interchange is cleared of mature vegetation.  Nearby residents say the trees and shrubs provided a natural sound barrier from the freeway.  The vegetation was removed in preparation for construction that will begin Monday, August 22nd.          See full article
Township Takes On MDOT Over I-75 Noise
In a strongly worded letter to sent to the Michigan Department of Transportation by Supervisor Savoie it is apparent that the Township fully intends to support the UHOA members bordering the portion of I-75 preparing for major road renovations.
Letter may be viewed here

President's Note:
As the I-75 reconstruction project begins the Township has been approached by more than one association with concerns regarding noise - both perceived increases since the removal of trees this spring and in the long term. The Township is exploring greater involvement in attempts to both improve communication between impacted residents and MDOT in attempts to influence sound abatement actions, if any. Sound generation by freeways and sound abatement are complex topics, as are the inter-relationships of different elements of the same. UHOA encourages its members potentially impacted by the project and/or any abatement designs to get involved in the process, communicate your support/ideas/concerns regarding any current activity or proposal and be an active participant in determining the outcome.

To that end, we are contacting our members to relate that the Supervisor has indicated this will be discussed during the Township Board of Trustees meeting on Monday Night 8/22/2016 at the Township offices at 7:00 PM."  

Ron Berndt - President UHOA
