Association Policy

Association Policy

Living in a planned community development offers many advantages but may also impose some restrictions and responsibilities on all owners. Maintaining an attractive appearance of our units, harmonious relations with your neighbors and providing a safe and healthy environment are also a very important part of our community.  The following policies represent the guidelines for resident activity and property use.  They have their basis in the Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (C.C. & R’s) and decisions/resolutions of the Homeowner Association Board of Directors.

Please familiarize yourself with them and how they may impact your use of the common area facilities and what association approvals are required prior to making changes to your unit or surrounding common or restricted common areas.

NOTE:

The Association carries the levels of insurance specified by Civil Code Section 1365.9, and pursuant to that section, owners may be individually liable to pay the amount of any judgment which may be rendered in favor of a plaintiff bringing an action in tort arising solely by reason of an ownership interest in the common area that exceeds the limits of the Association’s insurance.

The Association’s policies do NOT provide any coverage for interiors of individual units. It is therefore recommended that homeowners should procure a ”condominium owners policy” that includes not only earthquake and loss assessment coverage but personal property coverage that will cover the replacement of carpets, drapes, movable appliances & furniture and any real property improvement you made to or around your dwelling. Therefore members should consult with their individual insurance broker or agent for appropriate additional coverage.
