About Our HOA

Keeping our community safe and well-maintained benefits all of us. Many HOA's are professionally managed, for which homeowners pay significant management fees. Our Association is managed entirely by your neighbors who volunteer their time to our community. This helps keep our Association's dues affordable to all of us.

The Magnolias

HOA Projects

Completed Projects

Here are the completed projects for the Magnolias HOA for 2023.

The Association is responsible for maintaining the common sewer lines that serve multiple units. Individual lateral lines—those serving just one unit—are the responsibility of each homeowner.

The city of Mill Valley website explains the city’s sewer lateral ordinance and the city’s requirements for sewer lateral compliance, inspections and fees. The city’s Cash for Sewers program can help qualified home owners with replacement costs.

Also the HOA also maintains the common areas, such as the driveways, hedges and back hill.

Reserve Study

The reserve study was presented to the Magnolias HOA in 2023.

HOA reserve funds are designated sums of money set aside for future expenses, such as building repairs or replacements.

Under Consideration

These projects have been discussed as possibly necessary or requested by the board and/or home owners.

What is a CC&R ?

CC&Rs (Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions) are the primary governing document of most Homeowners Associations in California.

What do CC&R's do ?

CC&Rs are contractual agreements that establish rules, restrictions, and obligations for property owners within a particular community or development.

Why have CC&R's?

They maintain property values, protect the rights and interests of homeowners, and can ensure harmony by stipulating guidelines for homeowners and residents.
