Once the payment is received, we will complete it within 72 business hours. *Please be advised that at this time there will be no addendums completed or questions answered in reference to the structural integrity or deferred maintenance etc. until the association's attorney reviews and provide us a written correspondence. There is no timeline we can provide you for this and we reserve the right to refuse this portion of the questionnaire.  As you can imagine the liability these questions place on the Association and Management Company is quite large since we are not experts in this field.

I.            Personal Property

All personal property such as lawn chairs, bicycles, tables, etc., must be kept inside the patio, porch area or garage.  Personal property maintained within the patio area may not be visible above the patio fence, with the exception of patio furniture that was constructed and sold for outdoor use, patio umbrellas and grills.  Potted plants visible above the patio fence are also permitted. 

Nothing may be hung or displayed, nor may signs, awnings, canopies, shutters, antennas, or satellite dishes, or any other device or ornament be affixed to or placed upon the exterior walls, windows, door, fences, or roof without the prior written approval of the Association Board of Trustees.  Exceptions to this guideline are defined under Section II, Paragraphs A, B, and C.  In the event of a Hurricane warning in our area, residents will ensure that all patio furniture, equipment, plants, and ornaments are to be stored in the garage or home until the danger has passed.

The mounting of satellite dishes is permitted if the dish is mounted to the fascia on the face of the building at the point where the return wall facing perpendicular to the garage door ends.  However, permission to do so must be in writing from the association or management company.  The resident shall be responsible for any damage caused by the installation, removal, or operation of the satellite dish.  

Roof mounting is prohibited (except where already done), to prevent damage to the roof.

Flowers and shrubs are not permitted around any tree in the common area.

Any new planting outside the main mulch area (space between the sidewalk and exterior walls of the individual unit) will be mulched with brown mulch to match that used in all common area planting, except for permanent material such as rock or stones in place as of January 1, 2019.  Any new planting outside the areas designated above must have written permission from the Board who can also limit the size of the new beds.
