The EHR is a beautiful place to live. The community and schools are wonderful! However - the HOA & Karen C (who sends the violation notices) have gone way to far. They send out notices every single month over the littlest of things. Homeowners do not even have time to take pride in their own home before Karen sends a notice. Example - if you have a tree limb that has begun drooping...before you can ask your gardner to fix it, you already have a notice in your box. Wait a few months to see if the limb issues has resolved...no way you will have notices each and every time she passes by. "Remove sagging tree limb, remove weed in the corner of the south side of your lot, paint the fence in the south bottom hand corner where water hits it. You are not permited to plant that plant without persmission from HOA, remove it or submit a Variance Request." Those are just some of the weekly notices. I wish I was kidding but I'm not. Do not get me started on the parking tickets!!! No visitors from 3-6am without telling EHR first. Do not buy here if you have a boat or RV because its not allowed in the community over 24 hours. You can not have a friend over at the pool unless you sign them in. They need to know all of your business all of the time. If you by a foreclosed home ... EHR HOA has hit the new homeowners up before they even move in. My neighbor has been here 6 months and he has recieved 30 notices already. Are you kidding me? The home looks 10x better today then it did when it sat vacant. If the HOA cared that much why didn't they maintain it when the original homeowner abandoned the home? HOA's are designed to remind Homeowners to take pride in their homes if they NEGLECT it but EHR HOA has now decided that they are daily babysitters. They scour the neighbohood daily to send you a "reminder" letter. They are abusing the sytem. There are many beautiful homes and streets within the EHR that are not part of the HOA. Move there if you want the community but don't want the monthly harrassement that we HOA homeowners receive.

I have lived in EHR for over 12 years. The past 3-5 years we have seen a complete disconnect with the Association and the community needs. The EHR has made poor decisions and is now too aggressive with their warning letters. If it rains - you'll get a please weed notice. If you park on the street overnight or need your RV out for 48 hours - you'll recieve a citation. The constant paint your house or or trim you tree warning notices every single year. They have gotten way to agressive and every month send out "warning" notices. This area has beautiful familes and great schools but Karen S and the other staff at EHR have turned this neigborhood into a very over restricted area.

If you are planning on moving to the EHR, think again! We moved here in September of 2010 from a very bad neighborhood in San bernardino to take advantage of the great school district. It didn't take very long for us to get our first visit from the cso. Our house sat vacant for about 18 months before we moved in and the landscaping was badly neglected. We hadn't even finished moving in all of our belongings when we received a ticket for dead grass!! We were stunned I mean did they expect us to replace the lawn with sod before we even moved in? It doesnt stop there. My brother in-laws vehicle was vandalized twice causing lots in repairs and when we contacted the ranch they didn't care at all. They literally said WE need to be more careful! Also I am In the plumbing industry and had alot of expensive tools that were taken along with my work truck right from my driveway, driven to another culdesac in the ranch, stripped and left with nothing of value! Leaving me with no job or tools at all. Where were the cso's ? Nowhere to be found but the very next day I received a ticket for leaving my trash cans down! Maybe if the ranch would use some of that money to pay an actual security company to patrol the streets instead of some old fogey on a power trip we really would be better off. They say all incoming money goes directly to maintaining the hoa but our bill was increased to pay for damages caused by landslides. ? They didnt see that coming WTF!? Also if it's all spent on the ranch why am I paying for gas for a cso to drive around riverside?( saw him on the 215 twice in the same week.) unbelievable! Seems to me that I would have been much better off staying in San bernardino The community looks great but that's exactly what the thiefs say when they roll through here and take what they want then waive to the cso who is writing a ticket on your car as they leave!

This place is terrible to own. The EHR needs reform.Residents are constantly ticketed for petty incidents. We pay for security, yet when I called for a disturbance about car vandalism, I was told to call the Sheriff Dept.I called due to a disturbance on the horse trail & the return call stated they are not responsible for patroling the horse trail, I need to call the Sheriff, but funny thing is the EHR claims one of the benefits is the use of their private horse trails.If you register your vehicle w/EHR you have no rights. You are better off not registering & parking wherever & whenever you like,b/c they cant identify the vehicle so legally they can not ticket you(best thing about that fact,the actual patrol office told me that!).If you do have street parking permit, you can only park in front of the residence you reside.My last ticket was when I was visiting a fellow EHR homeowner & was ticketed for parking 2 streets away b/c my permit was not registered to that home. I guess my curfew to visit EHR friends is 3am, unless I check in.They have many rules & regulations & we pay dues, to keep property value up, yet during the recent home foreclosures the EHR does nothing to help maintain @least the yards of foreclosed homes in our neighborhood.A little water wouldn't hurt & it would also help w/ keeping our home values safe.Yes government is one thing, but Big Brother Micro Managing needs to stop!

I've read all the reviews..This forum is for people to directly voice their opinions of EHR directly, you may agree, you may disagree, so write a review. But to criticize someones opinions & point them out directly,basically telling them they dont belong here, is immature and makes you look bad.But then again I guess some people just can't grow up. I'M JUST SAYING! YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!

I bought in EHR 10 years ago when the HOA wasn't too bad. Now, dealing with their attitude and desire to make money off of the residence is unbelievable. It's so bad that I would have not bought in EHR if I knew how it was managed.
Yes, the grounds are lovely most of the time. However, because they are so profit driven (millions is reserve) they will accept low bids for maintenance, landscaping, etc. leaving the neighbordhood to suffer. There have been a number of occasions where I have found beer cans/bottles thrown in bushes, trash thrown on the street. playland in disarray and left that way for weeks. The EHR will ticket you for ANY reason they can all to make money. Trash cans out to the curb to early in the day, your own car parked in front of your house, brown fronds in palm trees, etc. Tickets are $35 - $50. Appeal process is that you pay the ticket ontime and wait for the committe to review your appeal. They have never approved an appeal for myself or anyone I know. ANY change to your property must be approved by the Association and the permit process can take months. I was told that I would have to remove the new vinyl fence I had installed because it was off-white not white as was approved by the permit committee! The attitude of the staff is unbearable as if you are simply a low life nuisance that they shouldn't have to deal with. Who pays their salary anyway? Residence have become so frustrated that they've tried to get on the board only to be strong armed by the existing committee. I would strongly advise against moving into EHR because it's simply not worth the pain and suffering that goes with dealing with this Home Owners Association. If you would like to speak to be directly please call 925-689-2514 as I'm beginning to rant.

We have lived here since 2004. It is the nicest place for miles around to live. The CSO??s (Community Service Officers) are only doing what they are told by management to do.

You get a ticket if you park in front of your own house or leave your trash cans out more than 24hrs. Not to mention oil stains weeds ect. However in all fairness that is what we signed up for and the place looks great!

What we did not sign up for is the ATTITUDE of the staff and George the manager. He acts like her owns the place. He is a 2 faced liar and come from the good old boy clan.

Kids: they don??t like them. All the playgrounds are hard to access and incontinent.

Waste: they waste $$ on all kinds of stuff and are now tiring to justify more fees. Lawn care, staff vehicles. We got a nice lawn care with a property management co but it is 8 guys who are here 3 days a week tops that cost us like a Million Dollars! Staff is breading like Rabbits with new office space to boot! And the get new vehicle every couple of years because ??the maintince is too high? Hey I got a idea for you, let them walk arrond the place , ride a bike or use electrick vehicles! .

What we need here is we need a HOA revolution here!

I am considering buying a house in the East Highlands Ranch. How has the fee changed a last couple of years? I would like to know the trends in fee changes. In addition, I read on their web site that they are going to start a new construction (a club house) soon. Would this significantly impact the fee increase?

I am planning to remove one tree in the backyard that is too close to the house. Does this some need a permission the East Highlands Ranch Assn?

Thank you!

The HOA fee is a bargain having been in others and one of the reasons it is a super nice area and well maintained is the HOA. People complain BUT they had trouble getting a quorum on a mail-in vote. We vote for the by-laws and the directors....participate if it matters to you. We LOVE being here and it is great value for the money.

It is a healthy place with something for everyone.

Pros: HOA amenities, the walking, the view, the lake

Cons: far from downtown LA and USC Football Games & such

I am a father of two very young kids who really loves living in EHR. I'm a northern California transplant who has been living here for five years. While we've had a couple of encounters with the HOA, we have not been constantly harrassed as most of the reviewers write. As long as you keep your grass green, fences painted, weeds minimal and let them know if you're going to be making any major changes to your landscaping, my wife and I have found them to be reasonable. The $100 monthly fee is a fraction of what we would pay in other HOAs and we feel like with both swimming pools, the 5 tennis courts, the miles of pathways, the three playgrounds, and the duck pond, we easily get our money's worth. I will admit the rules can be intimidating, but the staff is helpful when we have questions - regular communication is the key. The CSOs that I've spoken to are very friendly.The new event coordinator has set up a ton of wonderful events. Overall, living in EHR has been a great experience. I recommend it to anyone who asks me.

I'm thinking of moving to "the ranch," but have read so many negative reviews. It appears to be a beautiful community. Does anyone else feel positively about it?

We have lived here for nearly 3 years. Our home is beautiful and our neighbors are nice. The views of the mountains and the location of the ranch are great.
However..... all of the positives are pretty much ruined by the absolutely HORRIBLE home owner's association. They seem to exist only to make the quality of life in East Highland Rance worse. They are completely unhelpful and unfriendly. Having moved into a brand new house and having to consult them every time something was done (sodding the back yard, planting plants in the front yard, etc.) I know from experience that they have an attitude of control and almost disdain rather than helpfullness toward the residents. We pay over $100 monthly, however, in a meeting with the manager regarding a canvass and iron shade structure purchased at Target, and EXTREMELY common, I was shown an example of their true colors. One of the officers had sent us a letter ordering us to take down the structure because it was visible from the street. (we live at the top of a culdesack and only if you came to the very top, beyond the side walk and started to climb the hill would you see it). I met with the manger to try and explain that we had purchased the structure as a temporary messure to provide shade during the very hot summers as we were not yet prepared to fully landscape our back yard. I brought a copy of the HOA regulations showing that such structures were allowed in back yards. I got no where and out of frustration I said, "you just can't make up rules and tell me what to do with the home I just paid over $800,000 for" he said, "actually that is exactly what we can do." I was STUNNED and told him so. He told me he was trying to make a joke, to which I replied the single largest financial investment of my family's is no laughing matter. I was left with the option of removing it or potentially paying a very large fine. No due process what so ever!!
The HOA has only gotten worse and more punative since that point. In the difficult finacial times with foreclosures more common, the HOA seems to be trying to make up for their loss of dues by writng more rediculous fines.
If it wouldn't negatively affect my property value, I would put up a sign on each home for sale in the ranch telling the potential buyer what they are getting themselves into. I wish we would have been warned.
Finally, it would be so easy for them to make the residents lives better rather than worse. I wish they would take the obvious concerns to heart and change their ways!

WOW, apparently I'm not the only one that feels as though the CSO's are OUT OF CONTROL!!! They are on the brink of harrassment IMO! Not only that, they don't stick to their own rules completely! They give tickets & try to justify them, when there isn't anything in the HOA rules that is specific to that particular ticket. YES, I love the fact that the community is a nice community to live in but, it's no longer a comfortable community to live in when you have to worry if you are going to be fined every time you turn around! It's gotten WAY out of control & completely ridiculous! I've come to the conclusion that they target the easiest houses they can get to since ours is one of the first streets they can access. OH and one more thing...if we are paying ninety something dollars a month to live here...why on earth is it SO expensive to use the new clubhouse??? Also, when you do use it...they give you out of the time you are paying for...an hour to set up & an hour to clean up??? WTH!!! That isn't enough time to set up an event when you have to set up food, tables, decorations, etc., etc. My party imparticular was extremely LATE because not ONLY was the CSO 15 minutes late in opening the freakin thing...I had a TON of stuff to set up & the party was a 1/2 hour late! I had to have guests HELP finish setting up! ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE! NOPE, I'm not a big fan of the way they do things around here. Although, I am thankful that it's a nicer community & most of the people are nice, it's getting to be...not only annoying...but, very uncomfortable to live here. One more thing...it's easy to say, "don't live here then" which by the way...is a very mature answer (sarcasm)...but, just like you...I do LIVE here, I pay dues & I should have the SAME rights as everyone else in voicing my opinions! Just because you've apparently escaped the rath of the CSO's (So Far...but, you just wait)...if it were happening to you, you just might think differently! ;0)

Having moved here from a planned community in Maryland, i must say i was looking forward to it, but the HOA here is a bit extreme. Sure the homes are gorgeous and the people are extremely nice but I agree besides the pools, the HOA offers nothing. For over $100/month the benefits are a bunch of want to be cops running around in some mitsubishi's thinking they own the place and giving tickets to people who forgot to take the garbage cans and put them inside or have a couple of weeds on their lawn, while public places maintained by the HOA are riddled with weeds :-)

The overall rating is average. The people and the community is really what makes it a nice place to live not the HOA.

Having moved here from a planned community in Maryland, i must say i was looking forward to it, but the HOA here is a bit extreme.

The overall rating is average. The people and the community is really what makes it a nice place to live not the HOA.

Pros: People that make up the community - all nice professional and intelligent people

Cons: HOA - a bit extreme - use the budget for really inappropriate things and nothing is free

It sounds like "bluball" has an attitude that does not belong in East Highlands Ranch. It also sounds like his children have the same attitude.
The East Highlands Ranch is a very nice place to live with a lot of nice people and ugly attitudes don't belong here.

Take it easy..I love the ranch...been here for awhile and feel very safe and secure with the constant presence of CSO and/or other Ranch personnel. Also, even though the association fees are a tad bit high, i have found the association and its members to be very inviting, and personable. Plus, their are hot moms all over the place....if you dont like it, leave...

Lets get right into the meat and potatoes with no messing around. The most important things in our lives are FAMILY, HOME, and CAREER. Change the order any way you like, but it is highly likely these are at the top for most of us. If you buy a home in East Highlands Ranch, you just became a member of the Home Owners Association and you will be paying ninety some odd dollars a month to give up your rights to at least one of your top three items of importance. Do you have kids? Because the ranch is not a kid friendly place. That is unless your kids love to swim, because that is the only thing kids have to do. A general manager that seems to have forgotten that he started out as a child leads the ranch; I take that back, I suppose he could have been an unfortunate orphan. Regardless, to him the sight of teens is about as welcome as a rodent infestation and treated accordingly. Just the appearance of more than two adolescents in any given location on the ranch and he will be on the walkie talkie dispatching one of his community service officers to come and take names. To see if your kids have had their names taken down for ANYTHING. If he doesn?t like you, you will be promptly scheduled a meeting with covenance and thereby be given the chance to be fined up to $1,000. No joke. The hot flashes are obviously getting the
the best of this guy, which is evident by the old sweater over the polo shirt trick. A fashion statement that went out when Magnum PI was cancelled back in the mid-1980?s. Kids got skateboards? It is the common belief of EHR staff that all things evil comes from kids on skateboards. Everything from broken sprinklers to graffiti are caused by these renegade gremlin demons on wheels. So skateboarding is prohibited on all pathways. The ranch even has a CSO who is assigned exclusively to monitor pathways just to bust down on your hapless teen who is trying to get home after studying at his buddies? house. To continue see part two
