Enforcement & Fines
Governing Document Enforcement Policy
Adopted July 2001 per the CC&Rs, Article II Section 8
1. Fine Schedule:
a) Up to $50 per day for violation for first offenses. b) Up to $100 per day for violation for repeat offenses
2. Violations which require maintenance:
These are violations, which may result in the Association performing maintenance or repairs. Upon a violation, the Association may send a "Notice of Violation" to the Owner requesting that the Owner correct the violation immediately in the case of violations which create an imminent health or safety hazard, or within seven days. If the Owner fails to timely correct the violation, the Association may:
a) perform the maintenance or repairs; b) charge the Owner for the maintenance or repair costs; c) deliver to the Owner a "Notice of Board Hearing" as set forth below; and d) after a Board Hearing, impose fines as set forth above or other discipline as set forth in the Governing Documents.
3. General Violations:
These are violations which do not require maintenance or repairs. One example of such a violation is an Owner playing music unreasonably loud so that it disturbs neighbors during the late night hours. Upon a violation, the Association may:
a) send the Owner a "Notice of Board Hearing" as set forth below; and b) after a Board Hearing, impose fines as set forth above or other discipline as set forth in the Governing Documents.
4. The "Notice of Board Hearing"
The Notice of Board Hearing will set forth the date, time, and place for the hearing, a brief description of the action or inaction constituting the alleged violation of the Governing Documents, a reference to the specific Governing Document provision alleged to have been violated, and a statement that the Owner has a right to attend and may address the Board or committee at the hearing. The notice must be delivered by either personal delivery or first-class mail to the Member at least ten (10) days prior to the hearing. If the Board or committee decides to discipline the Owner, the Association must notify the Owner of the disciplinary action by either personal delivery or first class mail within fifteen (15) days following the decision. The discipline will not be effective until five (5) days after the notification of the decision.
The purpose of this policy and all other rules of the Association are to maintain and enhance the quality of life and value of the homes at The Grove. Accordingly, everyone should adhere to the rules. Owners are responsible for their tenants' conduct. If Owners lease their homes, then they must provide completed resident information forms to the association. The Association may enforce this policy and the rules by legal action.
