Veterans administration is stricter than the FHA on private roads. Chapter 12 of the VA Manual states that “private roads must be protected by a sustainable facility and maintained by a owners` association or a common maintenance contract.” Fannie Mae`s traditional loans require that real estate on a private road have an “appropriate, legally enforceable agreement, or a road maintenance agreement.” Fannie also points out that the registered document should include the biggest problem in the absence of a private road contract. Worse still, the idea of getting about 40 landowners to sign an agreement before closing. Fortunately, there are some possible solutions to this problem: in simple terms, private roads are roads that are not maintained by the state. These roads are maintained by someone other than the government, such as Z.B. landowners or a homeowners association (HOA). A widespread misunderstanding is that all private roads are unconsolidated streets, but this is far from fair. In fact, there are a number of very beautiful, large neighborhoods with private streets. For example, a large golf community might have private roads. Condominiums can also have private streets. With an association, the association brings the complaint on behalf of the association, not the name of a person. The association collects each judgment, transfers the money to the association`s account and distributes it according to the procedures applied by the landowners. The most common type of association used in New Hampshire for private road maintenance situations is a non-profit company created under the number RSA 292.
Although these entities are companies, the name often uses the word “association” in the title. The company (association) could be created to explain that each lot owner automatically becomes a member of the company. (RSA 292 uses the term “member” and not “shareholder”). Simple statutes would be adopted to address issues such as votes, assemblies and collections. In previous blogs, we have looked at the difference between a private street and a relief, the new New Hampshire law, which requires private maintenance of residential streets in certain situations, and what should include private road maintenance contracts. While an agreement is an important step, the creation of an association can significantly simplify the management and application of private road maintenance contracts. “The Mortgagee must confirm that the accommodation is equipped with pedestrian access and appropriate access from a public or private street. Roads must be either dedicated to the use and maintenance of the public or kept as private roads protected by permanently registered facilities. Private roads, including common entrances, must be protected by registered facilities, property shares or property and maintenance by an HOA.
