The Hallmark Woods Property Homeowners Association (HWPOA) is proud to announce our community’s victory, in the easement dispute. The legal case against all property owners in Hallmark Woods has ended in our favor. The lawyers will provide their final billings, and we will advise about the required payment due with individual letters to all that contain detailed accounts of payments.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is no update to the pending legal action against the Hallmark Woods Property Owners Association, due to the courts being closed.

We hope you and your family are well in this dangerous COVID-19 (Coronavirus) crisis. Business is not as usual and we seek all homeowners support as we plan and operate in this crisis.

Recently several questions have been asked about our community by homeowners and hopefully this update answers those questions ;

1. The HWPOA Board consist of Raechell Baily, Kathy Kauffman, Robert Krause, Nancy Smith and John Verde. In August when Phil Mazza departed the community, he directed that the existing board continue operation with the requirement that no action be taken unless there was 100% concurrence of all members with each board member having assigned responsibilities.

2. The lawsuit against the HWPOA by Mr. Marvin Allgood is in the Maryland court system. Funds have been requested recently to continue the defense of our properties since the initial legal fund is almost exhausted. We are seeking any contribution that homeowners can afford at this time. Based upon counsel discussions, we cannot provide much information because it may jeopardize our legal strategy. The cost of the defense is in the hands of the judges decision and based upon some of the action we proposed, we may win (which is still costly) or we may have to continue on which the cost to defend will be ten times the cost. It is our intent to keep you informed to the maximum extent possible without jeopardizing our legal position.

3. HWPOA has obtained liability insurance for any future legal issues but no insurance was in place that can be utilized to handle the lawsuit by Mr Allgood. But this insurance does not cover any homeowners individually owned properties.

4. The board is in the process of closing out the 2020 Operating Budget and preparing a 2021 Budget that will be forwarded under separate correspondence.
