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
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 lump sum payment. This act limits the amount of a lien on property assessed to the amount of an installment payment and the remaining balance may be assumed by the purchasing party.
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.
- Achieving neighborhood goals.
- 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.
The United Homeowner Associations of Bloomfield Township, Inc., is a non-profit association of homeowner groups comprised of 60+ member associations with a history of over 40 years.
The UHOA works to promote vital neighborhoods through good government, quality schools, and civic involvement. It holds regular membership meetings annually and additional director and officer meetings.
UHOA works closely with local government on issues of code enforcement, township elections, and taxation.
Working with a local vendors the UHOA has obtained discounted insurance rates for officer liability insurance.
UHOA also acts as a resource for member associations when they become involved in local enforcement actions and conducts workshops on various issues that affect our members.
UHOA further acts as a clearing house for common problems individual associations encounter and discusses issues that are urgent at the time.
The UHOA has provided a reference library to the website to assist its' members in dealing with operational issues that arise in the operation of a local homeowners association.

Informative General Membership Meeting
The attendees of the UHOA annual membership meeting were treated to a informative meeting centered on the wide variety of services available to the townships senior citizens.
This meetings program is the kick off of a UHOA information campaign to educate our members to these services and the importance of getting the word to those within our associations most in need of this assistance.
We encourage all of our members to take the time to view this video.
