Welcome to the Byrum Woods neighborhood

Byrum Woods is a well established neighborhood north of Raleigh, North Carolina. We are located north of I-540 and west of Creedmoor Road. Byrum Woods was developed in the 1980’s and is home to about one hundred families.

We are located about thirty minutes from downtown Raleigh, Wake Forest, Durham, and Research Triangle Park (RTP). To get to Chapel Hill, add another fifteen minutes to the drive.

The neighborhood is filled with families that have lived here for thirty years and have seen their children grow up and move out, to new families with infants. It provides a great mix of people, experiences, and a wide set of potential friends.

Each house in the neighborhood has approximately one acre of land, and most homes have a mature grove of trees in their backyard, where you will often find our resident family of deer. As a wooded community, you will find deer, snakes, and a other local wildlife. For water, we are on a community well ran by Aqua. According to some of the older residents, the lots were designed to be about one acre each to ensure that the well could support all of the households.

Entrance Maintenance

March 3rd, 2018|

The Board has been looking for a landscaping company to help maintain the entrances. To date, they haven’t been able to find anyone at a reasonable price. The Board will keep looking (if you know of someone that may be interested, please let the Board know), and hopes to find someone soon. Until then, please be aware that the front entrance maintenance may suffer some. If you’d like to volunteer to help keep them maintained, please let the Board know.

Annual Dues

Collected as of 5 Feb 2018

It is that time of year again, where the community collects the annual HOA dues. This year, as in years past, the dues are $60 per household. Approximately 70% of the dues collected go for maintaining the entranceways, and the remaining 30% go for our annual social events. If you get a call or visited by a Board member, please pay promptly. The Directors are all volunteers, and nobody enjoys going door to door to collect money.

Last year we had 98 households pay last year, and our goal is to get to 100 households this year.

Legal Status

The Byrum Woods neighborhood was developed in the 1980’s in three Phases (Phase I-III). Each phase has it’s own restrictive covenants. In 2002, the covenants were amended, and the 2002 covenants are the legally binding covenants today.

Currently, the Byrum Woods Home Owner’s Association is not empowered by the covenants to make assessments, conduct fines, or place liens on homeowner’s properties. Covenant enforcement is primarily through voluntary compliance, and if that fails, each homeowner is able to sue other homeowners for covenant non-compliance.

There are no common areas owned or maintained by the HOA. The HOA does maintain the signs in the front of each entranceway, but the signs are not on community owned land.

Since the HOA is voluntary, several members have purchased homes in the neighborhood without any knowledge of the Restrictive Covenants, to be surprised later than the covenants apply. Please make sure to communicate with the HOA Board to get the latest information prior to purchasing a house in the neighborhood.

Contact the Board

For the current legal status of the Byrum Woods Home Owners Association and the Restrictive Covenants, please contact the Byrum Woods HOA Board at byrumwoodsnew@gmail.com. They will be able to provide you the latest information and will be able to answer your questions. The Board is filled with volunteers, so their response may not be immediate.
