The following information is provided for real estate agents and prospective and current owners within the Cloud Country Estates subdivision. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY.

Note: No property may be sold or transferred from a seller who has outstanding balances with either the POA or the Club.


The Estates is similar to a small municipality requiring the same attention as any small city. Consequently, the operating and maintenance costs are the responsibility of the property owners. Responsibility for the operation and maintenance of all the facilities within the subdivision rests with the Property Owners Association. These responsibilities are administered by a Board of Directors elected annually by the property owners. Additionally, since this is a private subdivision, all activities within it are required to comply with the By-Laws and Covenants adopted by the property owners and implemented by the Board, as well as New Mexico state laws.
