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: 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.
