Here’s a quick rundown of frequent questions
Q: What do I have to do to make changes to the outside of my house?
A: Visit the Architectural Review Committee Page.
Q: Why do I have to follow the covenants?
A: Our community is governed by restrictive covenants and by-laws that are enforced by the law in the state of Georgia. Georgia local municipalities will often enforce safety and building codes and defer to local Homeowner associations to enforce items such as fence placement, color schemes, managing properties, violations and numerous other local aesthetics and building regulations.
Failure to recognize the by-laws and covenants can result in fines, revocation of amenity use, legal action, liens on your household, and a possible lawsuit.
Q: What is the Homeowners association board?
A: Your homeowners association is comprised of 5 residents that are elected through an annual meeting vote, or if a quorum is not present and there are more than 5 residents running for election, through a vote by mail ballot. Each account is allowed 1 vote per household. Your 5 board members then elect their positions of President, Treasurer, Vice President, 2nd Vice President and Secretary. Board members are volunteers that devote their time to being good stewards of your dues and maintaining, improving, and running all of the service contracts and business of the association.
Q: My neighbor doesn’t take care of their property, why should I?
A: While not everyone will have a perfect lawn, those that don’t will be put through the violation process. Violators of the covenants will be notified by letter of their status and the need for them to correct it. If they fail to correct the violation they fall into the fining process. If an item is obscene enough, the HOA can enact the self help provision and after proper notification, enter a resident’s property, enforce and correct the violation, and recoup all costs associated with doing so.
Q: What should I do if I have praise or complaint?
A: If you would like to communicate problems or recognize something great, please contact our property manager about the issue. If you are not responded to in a timely manner, please contact the HOA Board, under the contact us page.
Q: I have a question that wasn’t covered on this page!
A: If you have another question, send us an email.
