Q: What if I want to make a repair and be reimbursed for work that is the responsibility of the HOA rather than waiting for the HOA funds to become available?
A: All homeowner repairs submitted for reimbursement must meet all four of the following criteria:
1. The area in need of repair must be inspected by a member of our Maintenance Team and approved by the Board in advance;
2. The repair must be done by one of our approved vendors;
3. The completed work must be reviewed by the maintenance team.
4. The original receipts must be submitted to the Board.
If your work meets all four of these criteria, the Board may approve immediate reimbursement if the cost is $500 or less, or the Board may provide you with a promissory note pledging to reimburse you as funds become available after we have completed repairs of roofs and foundations currently in the queue, and any emergency repairs.
Q: What if I do not meet the criteria above but the repair work was the HOA's responsibility and the cost was covered by me personally?
A: These cases will be reviewed and voted on individually by the Board. Please submit an online contact form and schedule a special hearing prior to the monthly Board meeting if you would like to have your case reviewed.
Q: Can I refuse to pay my dues in lieu of fixing my repairs?
A: No. The board has ruled that the payment of dues is to be kept separate from the reimbursements to homeowners, as the bylaws agree. Anyone refusing to pay dues for any reason will be subject to any and all late penalties and foreclosure proceedings.
Q: How do I find out the status of my Maintenance Request?
A: Please go to the Maintenance section on this website and submit an online inquiry form.
Q: What is the approved exterior paint color for painting front, rear and garage doors?
A: Glidden Evermore - HD6112 Base 2 exterior acrylic latex flat, available at most local paint stores.
Frequently Asked Q's
Condo plumbing is often on a shared water system. On the plus side, you don’t have a monthly water bill because it is included with your monthly HOA dues. Each building is on a shared water system. By shared, we mean the pipes run from one unit to the next; they’re fed off one or more main valves. Shutting off the service to your unit means you are shutting off the service to your neighbors in the same building. As a courtesy, please plan ahead for your plumbing work on your unit, and give notice to your building neighbors with a flyer 24-48 hours in advance. In addition, it is courteous to simply say hello to them and make sure they got the memo and assure them the repair work will last no more than 2-3 hours.
Shutting the water off isn’t as simple as just shutting off the water for a single-family home. The water may take a while to drain from the system, aprx a minimum of 20 minutes up to an hour (according to the webmaster’s findings on a Goggle search)
