TEAL LAKE VILLAGE HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION, INC.

RULES AND REGULATIONS

 

INTRODUCTION

 

  

Condominium and multi-family living is a new experience for many of us and requires an understanding of its principles and operation. It is important to remember that whatever is done in the community affects all of us who reside here, whether it is full-time or part-time. With everyone’s cooperation, all may enjoy the advantages of condominium living. Thoughtfulness and courtesy are the paramount objectives.

 

In order to protect your investment and create a congenial and dignified residential atmosphere, your Board of Directors has adopted these Rules and Regulations that must be adhered to by you as a Homeowner, your family members and your guests, including renters. These requirements have been established to provide conformity, a visual and aesthetic consistency within the community that is both pleasant and desirable. The Rules and Regulations were adopted from the Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions for Tidewater and the Master Deed for Teal Lake Village and through previous Rules and Regulations established since the Teal Lake Village Homeowners Association was created.

 

Experience proves these rules meet the approval of a large majority of Homeowners who feel that implementation of them is the only means of achieving success in condominium living. It is felt that if all abide by these Rules, no one’s privileges will be infringed upon or denied. The Teal Lake Village Homeowners Association’s Board of Directors shall have final authority on any item subject to the Rules and Regulations of Teal Lake Village.

 

Any questions, suggestions or comments should be made to the Managing Agent or Board of Directors, preferably in writing. If the Managing Agent is unable to resolve your concerns, they will be referred to the Board of Directors. It is asked that everyone follow this procedure so that your requests may be handled in an orderly manner.

 

Sincerely,

  

The Board of Directors of the

Teal Lake Village Homeowners Association, Inc.

Any exception to this rule must be made in writing to the Board of Directors.

 

It is also the Homeowner’s responsibility that all renters be advised of TLV’s Rules and Regulations. Therefore, all Homeowners who rent their units through a Rental Agency are required to give them a copy of these Rules and Regulations. Ultimately, it is the Homeowner who will be held responsible for violations committed by family members, guests, renters or service personnel.

 

2.      STAFF

 

The number of employees and/or maintenance subcontractors is limited by our budget and each has a full work schedule. Only the Managing Agent of TLV or the President of the TLV Board is authorized by the Board of Directors to give instructions to these employees or subcontractors. If a Homeowner has an issue or request, it needs to be submitted to the Managing Agent or the President of the TLV Board for action.

 

3.      SECURITY

 

Security is the responsibility of each and every one of us. Depending upon the nature of the situation, Homeowners are requested to notify the Police (911) and Tidewater Security (843-249-0909) of any suspicious people, activity or trespassing. In all situations Tidewater Security needs to be notified that you have called the Police. The Managing Agent should also be informed of any such incident. (843-839-3131)

Tidewater Security must be notified of any individual that will be entering Tidewater Property to access TLV. This includes guests, whether they are family members, friends, renters, service personnel or delivery personnel. If Security is not called with this information, the individual will not be given access to property.

 

4.      GUESTS

 

Guests are to be given a copy of the Rules and Regulations and it is the Homeowner’s responsibility for their observance of such rules.

Loud talking and the volume of televisions, stereo equipment and musical instruments must be kept to a minimum at all times; especially between the hours of 9:00 PM and 8:00 AM. If you should be disturbed by noise, please notify Tidewater Security. (843-249-0909)

29. EMERGENCY “911” PROCEDURES

 

In the event of an emergency, please immediately call 911 for emergency response. This call should immediately be followed by a call to Tidewater Security (249-0909) to apprise them of the arrival of an emergency vehicle and to insure prompt and correct directional information.

 

30. REMEDY FOR VIOLATIONS

 

From time to time Representatives of the TLV Board will inspect properties and notify the Managing Agent of any violations.

 

1.   If the Managing Agent determines that a violation has occurred, per the above, or as a result of their own inspection, they will issued a written “notice” to the Homeowner involved at his/her last known address. The notice will provide a description of the violation, the corrective action required, the date by which corrective action must be completed (thirty (30) days from the date of the notice), and the consequences if the violation is not corrected within the required timeframe.

 

2.   The first violation “notice” relative to an infraction shall be issued as a warning unless the Managing Agent, in conjunction with the TLV Board, determines it to be a matter of public safety or a violation so egregious as to waive the warning provision. Any subsequent ”notice” relative to the same infraction and/or failure to cure a previous or similar infraction, shall be subject to penalties levied by the TLV Board.

 

3.   If a violation is not corrected within thirty (30) days of the mailing of the first “notice” of violation, the Homeowner(s) will be fined in accordance with the following fine schedule:

-   $100.00 for the first non-compliance (sent at the time of the second mailing)

-   $300.00 for the second non-compliance (sent thirty (30) days after second fine notice)

-   $300.00 for every thirty (30) days thereafter until compliance

 

4.   Once a fine exceeds $1,000 or becomes more than 90 days past due, collection proceedings will be implemented. All cost associated with the collection process shall be added to the outstanding fine balance. Collection proceedings shall include, but are not limited to, the use of the County Magistrate Court, filing of a lien on the property and possible foreclosure to satisfy the lien.

31. RULE CHANGES

 

The TLV Board, on behalf of the Association, reserves the right to change or revoke existing Rules and Regulations and make such additional Rules and Regulations from time to time as, in their opinion, shall be necessary for the safety and protection of the buildings and their occupants, and to provide cleanliness and good order of the property and the convenience of all members.
