What is the Tyler Walk Homeowners Association?

The Tyler Walk Homeowners Association (HOA) is a non-profit organization that sets the rules and regulations for homeowners in the Tyler Walk development in Newtown Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Our goal is to preserve the look and life of Tyler Walk, maintain property values, and assure pleasant and harmonious living for our residents and their guests. Individuals who purchase property within Tyler Walk automatically become members of the HOA and are required to pay Association fees. The Association is run by a Board of Directors consisting of five residents who have been elected by a vote of our homeowners. 

What are the Homeowners Association fees and what do they cover?

Our Homeowners Association fees are $148 per quarter for each unit.


The quarterly fees cover the costs of ground maintenance of the common areas, maintenance and repair of the HOA facilities (clubhouse, pool, tennis courts, and playground), the cost of our property managers, the cost of lifeguards at the pool, and insurance of the HOA facilities.

Is trash service included in the Association fee?

No, each resident is reponsible for contracting with a private trash vendor themselves. The most widely used trash vendors are: Waste Management (www.wm.com), Republic Services (www.republicservice.com), McCullough Trash (www.mcculloughrubbish.com), and United Group Services (www.unitedgroupservices.com). 

When does the Board of Directors meet?

The Board meets once a month at the Tyler Walk Clubhouse by the pool. Meetings are normally held on the fourth Tuesday of each month and are open to the public beginning at 7:30PM. All residents are welcome to attend. 

Do I need approval to change the exterior of my home?

Yes, the HOA has established standards to maintain the quality of the appearance of our community. Certain changes are permitted with prior approval, while other changes are not permitted. Our Rules and Regulations describe what is and what is not permitted. For permitted changes, residents are required to submit an Architectural Change Request (ACR) Form prior to making any change to the exterior of the property. Interior changes do not require the approval of the HOA. 

When do I need to submit an ACR form?

Residents should submit an ACR form whenever they are replacing existing materials on the outside of the home, or changing the exterior appearance of the home. This applies to replacing material even when the new material looks identical to the old material. The following are examples of some of the changes/replacements to the exterior of your home that require approval: roof, siding, drainage systems, patios, steps, decks, windows, doors, garage doors, driveways, shutters, gutters, landscaping, post and rail fencing, sheds, privacy screens, and trees.
