Congratulations! Welcome to Westbury!
Here are few items to help you along
in the process of purchasing or selling a home in Westbury.
Westbury is a deed restricted community. The deed
restrictions govern the use of the property and prevent certain types of
development and construction and much more. The deed restrictions have
been in place since the neighborhood was founded and have helped to maintain
the neighborhood over the past 60 years.
All sections of Westbury have active deed restrictions. They are available online under the Documents
tab, Deed Restrictions. If you have any questions,
please call 713-723-5437. The WCC can review your plans for free to
make sure you are not in violation of the deed restrictions. Fill out the House Plan Review Form found under Forms, and return it to the WCC office with the requested items.
properties in Westbury are subject to fees when a property transfers or
refinances. These administrative fees
cover our expenses of providing any information requested and then
changing/updating our records as needed.
Types of information requested are any assessments owed or paid,
property conditions, current violations and/or general information about the
Westbury Civic Club. These requests must
be made in writing by either the owner of the property, the owner’s agent,
buyer, or buyer’s agent. All requests
will be responded to within 10 business days.
A transfer occurs when the property
is changing ownership. Payment is
usually made at closing and is made with the title company who forwards payment
to the Westbury Civic Club.
A refinance occurs when the property is not changing hands but the owner is
refinancing the loan. Payment is usually made at closing and is made with
the title company who forwards payment to the Westbury Civic Club.
Resale Certificate: $100
A resale certificate is not currently required by the Civic
Club, but can be requested by the owner, owner’s agent, buyer or buyer's
agent. Resale certificates include the Deed Restrictions for the section of
Westbury that the property lies in, the By-Laws of the WCC, documents proving
solvency, the policies of the WCC, and more. The fee must be paid at the
time of request. Please complete the Resale Certificate Request Form on the Forms Page and
deliver to the WCC office with payment.
RUSH Resale Certificate: $150
A RUSH request is defined as the Certificate being needed within 3 business
days of the official request via the Resale
Certificate Request Form on the Forms Page.
Request for HOA Fees and
All requests for financial status of a property account must be made in
writing. You may email your request to the WCC office at
firstname.lastname@example.org. We do not accept requests made
over the phone.
It is very important that correct and current information for
buyers is provided to WCC at the time of transfer so that we may provide the
new owners with important correspondence about their new property. When a cash
sale is completed, please provide New Owner Contact Information on the Forms Page, for
cash sales at the time of transfer.
