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. Delinquent landlords can be the biggest headaches with private maintenance of the road. A person may disagree with the work or quality to be done and express this disagreement by refusing to participate in the fees. In the absence of a unit (association), one or more individual owners must apply for action on their own behalf and negotiate the costs with the other owners. In addition, legal actions are brought against actions. A counterclaim is indeed a new and separate action against the person filing the forfeiture action on behalf of the other owners. Legal action must be defended, and its mere existence may appear on a person`s credit report. Some homeowners were not willing to accept the interview, but we finally found a way to formulate agreements that would satisfy all stakeholders and allow funding. NHAR worked with lawmakers to introduce Senate Bill 401, an attempt to meet Fannie Mae`s requirements and impose minimum maintenance requirements for a private road. The language will simply codify what the NH Supreme Court has already decided in several cases: “a right of private access is a relief” and that those who have access to it are responsible for maintenance. Unless amended, it is both the creation of the unit and the adoption of statutes that require the signature of all landowners who wish to become members of the association.

In other words, only those who join the association are bound by its rules and regulations. Even if not all owners join, an association can still be useful in imposing existing alliances against non-members. The association can also be useful in enforcing the legal obligation of owners to contribute to the maintenance of private roads. The need is the mother of intent / we have families who built houses (large packages) then to private streets and while there were relatives, there are no problems.
