the question: Can homeowners association officers decide to raise the road maintenance fees without the consent of the homeowner or am I protected by the amount set when I purchased the property?

the answer: The power of a Homeowners Association (HOA) is set by the provisions of the by-laws for the HOA. So each case would have to be dealt with on and individual basis, but typically the actions of the officers of an HOA are controlled by the by-laws and normally the by-laws require a meeting and a vote of the homeowners to raise fees or to take other actions. You could be out voted by the other owners and then the fees could be raised through the process defined in the HOA by-laws.

Ready your outdoor spaces for summer living (StatePoint) There’s no better place than your own backyard for relaxing, entertaining and enjoying the outdoors. And there’s no better time than summer to spruce up your space. If you’re looking to upgrade a humdrum yard into something special, here are some things to consider: Comfort Trees and awnings aren’t just great adornments for your yard; they provide much needed shade for you to sit outdoors comfortably and safely. Avoid summer mosquito bites by placing birdbaths and other standing water structures far from lounging and eating areas. Install LED yard lighting for night, which is less likely to attract mosquitoes than incandescent lights.

Safety When planning your space, make safety a top priority. Since evenings are prime-time for summer entertaining, lighting is an essential safety measure. Start by considering where you need to increase visibility. Choose post-mounted lanterns near driveways and wall-mounted lanterns next to doors for ease of access and to welcome guests. If underground wiring is required, consult an electrician or experienced landscape lighting contractor. For deck stairs or terraced paths, don’t forget step lights to aid in navigation. And thoroughly check outdoor railings, steps, decks and porches to make sure they are steady and that no nails or boards have come loose.

Beauty Your yard is an extension of your home, so don’t let design and style fall by the wayside when planning its look. For a touch of natural beauty, consider planting a flower garden to attract butterflies and humming birds. “Illuminate paths and define edges where the garden or grass meet walkways,” says Jeff Dross, corporate director of education and industry trends for Kichler Lighting, a leading supplier of outdoor and landscape lighting for consumers and contractors. The interplay of light and shadow adds magic to the night. By carefully placing accent lights at upward or downward angles and using wall wash lighting, you can silhouette trees and direct shadows. Capture the nighttime loveliness of water features like ponds with LED lights specially built for underwater illumination. For best results, consult a landscape lighting expert. More information on landscape lighting can be found at or You can also receive referrals to Kichler-certified landscape lighting contractors by clicking “Need a Contractor?” Energy-Savings Don’t let your exterior spaces drive up your home’s energy bills. New LED deck and landscape lights are low-maintenance, cost effective options. Lasting up to 40,000 hours -about 15 years -- these fixtures use 75 percent less energy than incandescent lights. “Since outdoor lighting is often left on all night or for many hours at a time, savings from LED lighting can really add up,” Dross says. Remember to avoid cheaper LED lights with a bluish cast that many find unattractive. Opt instead for a warm white light, such as Kichler’s Design Pro LED landscape lights. Don’t just dream about the perfect outdoor space. For a great season, transform your yard into a beautiful, fun place.

Getting Top Value for a Green Home buyer to distinguish between homes with green features and traditionally built.

National and local studies show that Certified Green Homes are in demand however banks don't necessarily recognize their value when it comes to providing mortgage money. This occurs for several reasons, one the general public still doesn’t demand credit extra value to houses that have money-saving solar installations, geothermal heating and cooling, Energy Star appliances, water conservation features and other green improvements. Second most appraisers don’t have the training and education to recognize the additional value. Green education is not part of the certified appraiser curriculum. Appraisers may assign worth to green features differently, leading to inconsistent valuations. This inconsistency can be traced to a shortage of

The buyer should confirm the person assigned to the house is trained in green building assessment. If the appraiser isn’t familiar with how to judge green, energy-efficient homes, then it is ok to request another appraiser. Selling or buying a home with green features or upgrading an existing home to be green is not only good for the environment but your pocketbook as well. Buyers and sellers must demand green homes be given added value and respect among appraisers and lending agencies.
