Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

We try to anticipate questions you may have about our association, pool, clubhouse, and activities. If you need additional information, please send us an email at info@hcrafairfax.org.


How do I become a member of the pool?

If you live in the Hampton Chase Homeowners Association portion of the neighborhood, you are automatically entitled to membership, provided you are in good standing with the HCRA and are fully current in your yearly homeowner's dues.  A list of all addresses belonging to HCRA can be found at HCRA Membership Addresses.

Additionally, (1) if you live in the Hampton Forest – you are invited to apply for associate membership and are required to pay the annual dues; or

(2) if you are a renter, the homeowner landlord may transfer their interest in the pool membership to you, pending the landlord is in good standing with the HCRA; or

(3) if you are in a neighboring association, the HCRA opens its doors each year to new members on an invitation basis.  Please contact info@hcrafairfax.org if you require additional information. 


How do I get a pool pass (I’m new to the community / I lost my old pool pass)?

In order to obtain a pool pass, you must first obtain membership to HCRA (see above) for the current year, have completed a pool pass membership form for the current year, and have a current 1” x 1” color photo of each person obtaining a pool pass. You can then come to the clubhouse during one of the times in May listed on the Pool page.  If you cannot make the times listed or have joined the HCRA after May, then please contact Cardinal Management.
