POLICY LETTER Effective: November 1, 2009
This is to let all Owners of Casa Del Condominiums as to the policy on what expenses/repairs are shared by the Association and Owners. This policy is hereby made by the Board of Directors and shall be effective as of January 1, 2010. In the event that a common element (water lines, roof leaks, sewer piping, etc.) failure causes damage to the interior space of an Owner’s Unit, as defined in the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, Restrictions, and Easements for Casa Del Sol Condominiums (“Declaration”), the Association shall be responsible for the repair or replacement of the failed item or items that exist in the common area, except where the Owner/Occupant of a Unit caused the failure or damage to occur in which case all costs of repairs will be passed on that unit’s Owner.
Upon a failure of any common element that causes any repairs, replacement, or maintenance of any item or items that is considered to be part of, or servicing only that Owner’s Unit, those non-common items shall be repaired at the expense of that Unit Owner. If the Association causes the repairs to be made for an Owner under a written agreement with the Association (or insurance claim, which will have another different policy), the Owner agrees to pay the Association in full within TEN (10) calendar days of receipt of the invoice for such work done on behalf of an Owner. If not paid, the Association can add the invoice amount to the dues owed each month and it will all be considered “dues” and shall be collectible as such, also incurring a late fee equal to the greater of fifteen dollars ($15) per delinquent assessment or ten percent (10%) of the amount of unpaid assessment. If any action of law is brought by the Association to recover said dues, refer to section 7.8 of the Declaration for conditions.
If an Owner’s Unit requires maintenance or repair due to an emergency situation occurring within that unit, a representative of the Association shall endeavor to reach the Owner at least three times in an 3-hour period at the last known phone number or contact number held in the records of the Association. If the Owner does not respond within that 3 hour “window”, the Owner authorizes the Association to employ a locksmith to open the Owner’s Unit and the Association is authorized to make all necessary and reasonable repairs to diminish or eliminate damage to the Owner’s Unit or any Common Area. Upon entering upon the Owner’s Unit and making necessary repairs, the Owner specifically indemnifies and holds the Association and it’s representatives harmless from any and all claims associated with this action. The Owner specifically agrees to pay for any and all reasonable charges incurred by the Association in taking this action, including but not limited to, the locksmith bill, any labor or parts incurred by workmen in making repairs, re-painting, re-flooring, replacement of drywall, cabinets, lighting, plumbing, electrical devices, removing carpet and padding, deploy water-drying equipment, etc.
All Unit Owner’s are encouraged to obtain insurance for such costs occurring within their condominium.
POLICY ON HANGING ITEMS ON EXTERIOR WALLS, DOOR JAMS OR EXTERIOR BEAMS. The Board reminds All Owners and their tenants, residents or occupants that mounting any item on an outside wall, around exterior doorways or an exterior wood beam, even those walls, doorways and beams on decks and patios, is not allowed without prior written consent of the Board. Outside walls, exterior doorways and structural beams have been determined to be either common area or limited common area depending on the location. These walls, doorways and beams are the responsibility of the Board. The Board may have the right to deny certain wall attachments, or may place stipulations on what goes on an outside wall, doorway or an exterior beam or it's manner of attachment. In the Casa Del Sol COA Rules, it states: EXTERIOR APPEARANCE. Enclosures, shades, screens, or other items affecting the exterior appearance of any patio or balcony shall NOT be permitted without the express written consent of the Board. Futher, in the Bylaws of Casa Del Sol Condoinium Association, in section 7.2: It shall be the duty of the Board of Directors: (h) cause the Common Elements to be maintained. In The C,C&R's, there are sections 4.1 and 5.6 that speak to the effect that outside walls, even on balconies and patios, are the responsibility of the Board as a Common Element. Section 4.3 speaks to the responsibility of an Owner to repair any damage caused by an Owner to any Common Elements. The bottom line, nothing can be attached, drilled into, glued, nailed, or hung in any way that affects the exterior appearance of a Condo and would require express written consent of the Board prior to any mounting or attachment of ANY item. This includes the use of any structure, exterior wall, exterior beams, doors or casing around doors, walkways, fascia and exterior surfaces. How do you gain approval? Submit a written request by mail to the Association's P.O. Box 430 in Cottonwood, or send an email at the Board's email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Be specific as to what you wish to attach, where is will be located, how it will be attached, and if it designed to be a permanent or temporary mounting. The Board will, within 14 days, write you back with denials or approvals, and stipulations as to how, what and when go with any approval.
