Cypress Trails FAQ

The purpose of your community’s Association is to own and maintain the common areas for the benefit of all homeowners. These areas include roadside landscaping, neighborhood parks, and preservation areas.  The Association, through its Board of Directors, also enforces the rights and obligations outlined in the Declaration of Covenants and Restrictions for the community.

Every homeowner within Cypress Trails at Nocatee is a member of the Cypress Trails Homeowners Association.

While limited to some extent by state and local laws, HOA rules and regulations are also supported by them. This means that becoming a member involves entering into a legally binding contract. As long as the HOA stays within its authority and its governing documents comply with state and local laws, courts will usually uphold their actions if an issue gets that far. While rules are officially set in documents, the HOA can usually change them through a member vote or similar procedure, so there is recourse if a particular restriction or bylaw seems unfair. Disciplinary actions by an HOA are typically in the form of fines, but in more serious cases may go as far as a lien on the property. For a sufficient offense, the HOA may even be able to foreclose on a home, depending on its rules. If an HOA assesses fines, even incorrectly, it may be better to pay them first and then contest the matter to avoid any late fees, penalties, or other consequences.

The Tolomato Community Development District (CDD) was established to assist in the financing and construction of public infrastructure of Nocatee, including major roadways, parks and trails, and other amenities serving property owners in Nocatee. The CDD operates and maintains those improvements, and you will pay assessments and fees to the CDD annually. Typically, these fees are included in the Real Estate tax bill you receive from the County in November of each year. These fees are not associated with the Cypress Trails HOA.
