COMPLIANCE & VIOLATIONS
Inspection of the community is conducted on a routine basis by the Property Manager with the primary purpose of addressing any violations that exist in the community. The Property Manager looks for Architectural Review Committee violations as well as any violations of the Rules and Regulations for the community.
If a property owner is found to be in violation, the following steps will be taken:
Management will send out a letter informing the owner of said violation and allow them a specific number of days to remedy. If the owner feels compliance with the remedy request is not achievable, they must contact the Property Manager to discuss an appropriate resolution.
If upon re-inspection the violation still exists, a second letter will be sent via Certified Mail (expense for certified mail will be billed back to the property owner) requesting compliance. If the owner feels compliance with the remedy request is not achievable, they must contact the Property Manager to discuss a resolution.
If upon final re-inspection the violation still exists, the Association may take one or more of the following actions:
Issue notice that the Association intends to take action to correct the violation. The expenses of such maintenance shall be reimbursed to the Association by the owner. Such charges shall be a Default Assessment and lien on the Privately Owned Site of the Owner as provided in Section 8.7 of the Community Declarations.
Issue a noncompliance assessment charge to the Privately Owned Site / Owner at a schedule of $100.00 per month until the date the owner makes corrective action and such action is approved by the Association’s Board of Trustees. The noncompliance assessment charge will accrue interest at a rate of 1.5% per month and be subject to late fees. Such charges shall be a Default Assessment and lien on the Privately Owned Site of the Owner as provided in Section 8.7 of the Community Declarations.
File a conditional lien with the Franklin County Recorder’s Office to be noticed upon sale of the Privately Owned Site. Corrective action must be taken and approved by the Board of Trustees prior to the sale of the Privately Owned Site. Otherwise, the lien transfers with the property to the buyers. Cost of all filing ad expenses will be at owners’ expense.
Construction Site Guidelines Compliance
The New Albany Country Club Community Association is also regulated by Construction Site Guidelines. When fines are issued per the Construction Site Guidelines, and they go unpaid, all Architectural Review Committee reviews for said home and builder will be suspended until payment in full is received.
