A courtesy notice is a friendly reminder to address the property maintenance concern that may have been identified during the property inspection by the Spectrum Standards Team. The goal is to gain compliance and help to maintain the overall look and feel of the community. No fines or enforcement is associated with the notice.
A violation is an observed or reported condition on a homeowner’s property, which does not comply with the community’s Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&R’s). The CC&R’s are available on your community’s website.
If you received a violation letter, it is because your home or property is in violation of the DCCRs (Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions) and/or the Bylaws of the association. Violations are generated following the regulations set by the Association, and letters are issued whenever the management company observes a violation. *Please act quickly to come into compliance after getting a letter. Many associations have fines for lingering compliance violations.
Take action and correct the violation or if you are unable to cure the violation in the time allotted, you might be able to request additional time to cure the violation. The goal in sending violation letters/notice is to gain compliance and help maintain or improve the overall look and feel of the community. Every owner should share this common goal and support the efforts to maintain property values by maintaining their properties.
Most communities will allow you to request an extension of time to come into compliance. To make a request access your online account and locate the violation option under the “For Homeowners” tab. Locate the violation and use the Add Comment option to leave a note asking for an extension. * Please provide the specific date you will be in compliance. If any additional information is needed, or the date requested is deemed unreasonable.
If you have fixed the violation after receiving only a courtesy notice, then there is no need to dispute the violation. To dispute a violation you can contact Your HOA and a member of our Homeowner Services team will contact you. You can also chat with a representative on our website through our chat feature.
Unless the letter addresses a daily fine, there is no need to call us once you have become in compliance after receiving a violation, we will notate it on our next visit to the property and remove the violation from the account if corrected.
Properties are inspected once or twice a month (may vary per community) by Your HOAs Inspections Department to enforce the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&R’s).
