Information for New Homeowners

Welcome to Tanoan Community East Association

Below is important information to get you started, but please review all governing documents as soon as possible.

  1. You are part of a homeowners association whose purpose is to provide a communal basis for preserving, maintaining, and enhancing homes and property. When you closed on your home or lot, you automatically became a part of the TANOAN COMMUNITY EAST ASSOCIATION INC. The governing documents bind all owners to be governed by the Association. Your membership continues until you sell your property.
  2. Your assessments are due monthly on the first of each month. You will receive a coupon book for your payments unless you are enrolled in auto debit. Late fees and interest are applied for late payments. Assessments are levied to each owner in order to operate and maintain the community. The owners’ financial obligation to the HOA is driven by the annual operating budget. Some of the items covered by your assessments include landscape maintenance in the common areas, insurance, administrative costs, management, common area maintenance, etc. Homeowners are strongly encouraged to sign up for our auto debit program for payment of their assessments. Go to and under “Homeowners” click on “Make Payment” then complete the “Enroll in Auto Debit” form.
