Violations and Inspections
Our new Inspection & Violation Policy is now in place:
NOTE: While many homeowners have received violations since January 2020, no one has been fined. Due to Covid we have not penalized for deed restriction violations, but we must start again in 2022 in order to maintain our community appearance.
The purpose of inspections and the subsequent issuance of a violation letter is to maintain the standards of the community. The Association is tasked with ensuring that all homeowners maintain the exterior of their residence to a minimum standard, as required in the By-Laws. In addition, this helps improve and maintain the appeal of the community. This is particularly important when home owners are selling their homes. Inspections typically will focus on three main areas, fencing, mold and mildew and lawn maintenance.
1 st Notice :
Friendly Reminder- This is a regular letter. Although this letter does not give a specific compliance date, residents are encouraged to remedy the concern(s) within 30 days. Inspections occur every month.
2 nd Notice :
This is a more formal letter which requires that the resident/owner remedy the concern(s) within 10 days.
3 rd Notice :
Final- This letter is sent through regular mail and as a certified letter. This is a final notice and requires that the concern(s) be remedied within 30 days or the board can turn the matter over to the Association attorney. All fees associated with mailings and the attorney will be billed to owner. With board approval, the Association Attorney can file liens and/or foreclosures against the property.
