Parking Stickers

Parking stickers are free to residents whose annual maintenance fees are paid. To get your car sticker, please send a copy of your vehicle registration to the office. These stickers are required to park in the beach area parking lots. Guests of those residents in good standing must park outside the parking area. Parking along Townsend Harbor Rd. is prohibited.

Releases

Please Note! Landowners must RELEASE all property in Hickory Hills before a homeowner can sell, transfer, refinance, or change names on deeds. All of these transactions must comply with a provision in our deeds which grants the corporation a Right of First Refusal to purchase a property, and the corporation waives this right in the RELEASE.
To obtain your RELEASE in time for any property sales, you must request your RELEASE from our Office Manager in writing (via email or mail). Usually you would request this when you have a purchase and sale agreement signed by both parties. You must include:

Without a RELEASE the sale of a property cannot be completed, and the buyer cannot obtain clear title to the property. When you complete a property sale with the proper RELEASE, that RELEASE is recorded at the Registry of Deeds with your new deed, and it is given a new Registry Book/Page number.
Our office procedure is as follows:

  1. The RELEASE must be requested in writing at least 14 working days prior to closing along with a copy of the purchase and sale agreement signed by both parties.
  2. When the RELEASE is requested by a property owner, attorney, bank/financial institution or realtor, our Office Manager will immediately confirm the transaction with the property owner. Once the information needed for the transaction has been confirmed, the property owner must pay Landowners' fee to prepare the paperwork.
  3. If the property owner's license fee is past due or if any other fees owed to Landowners are outstanding, the fees must be paid by the owner before the RELEASE is prepared prior to the closing.
  4. License Fees must be paid for by the property owner whether or not the closing occurs.

Please plan ahead and give our Office Manager ample time to complete your RELEASE properly so that your closing will not be delayed, and you will have a smooth transfer of your property.

Rates for the Release are: Shareholder is $40 and Non-shareholders are $80

Stock Purchases

Please contact the office if you're interested in becoming a Shareholder. The one time purchase is $240.00. There's many advantages to becoming a Shareholder in Hickory Hills Landowners, Inc. such as a 50% discount for Boat Stickers, ID Cards and First Right of Refusal Releases as well as a voice and vote at our Annual Shareholer meetings held each year in September.

Stock Changes

Please contact the office to make arrangements for any stock changes due to death, divorce, name change, etc. Our Office Manager needs to be notified in order to issue a stock in the new owner(s) name when buyer purchases the prior owner's share. Remember stockholders receive a 50% discount for ID cards, boat stickers, and release fees. If you are interested in purchasing a share of stock please contact the office.
