Kent County would like to make available the list of all developments that have HOAs. The information may include contact information for the association or one or more of its Board of Directors. If you know of an association contact that is not listed on the page, feel free to contact our office so that we can update our records. We will also be posting any association documents that we have availble for your community.

We do not have any information on a development that is in one of the many municipalties in Kent County.
All residents should be aware that the county does not have the authority to enforce deed restrictions. These are contracts between the individual homeowner and the association. They can only be enforced by the authority granted to the HOA or by the filing of a civil lawsuit. The following are two documents to help homeowners understand what they can legally do to deal with allegations of lack of Deed Restriction compliance.
10 Del Code Section 348 Chancery Deed Restriction Procedure
Statutory Procedure 012607
The developer will normally control the HOA until such time they have finished all of the required improvements for the development. This may include finishing of roads, stormwater management areas, required landscape plantings, and active open spaces improvements. Some HOAs transfer control when the development is at a designated percentage of completed home construction. This is usually between seventy (75) and ninety (90) percent completion. Residents should not accept full control of the HOA until any required improvements have been installed by the developer. The Planning Department is available for inspections of your community to verify that all requirements have been met prior to responsibility being transfered.
