Property Inspections

The quality of our community is only as good as the quality of each property within the community.  Our HOA has a design standard that creates unity and harmony from one home to the next.  The developer has chosen colors and design to complement each other.  It is important for each homeowner to regularly maintain the design, the colors and good condition of their property according to these basic standards.

Our management company performs regular inspections for each home and property.  Individual homeowners receive notices for items that need to be addressed.  The homeowner is given a period of time to correct the items and notify property management of the corrections.  It is mandatory to make the necessary corrections.

To make sure that your property passes inspection, please be sure to regularly check the following items.  Keep in mind that this is only a partial check list.  Refer to your homeowner documents for a complete review of required maintenance and design standards.


Paint – Peeling or damaged paint must be corrected with original colors.  Mold, mildew, rust, and algae growth on paint must be removed.

Siding – Cracked, broken or missing siding must be repaired to original color and style.

Trim – Includes decorative moldings, columns, rails, door and window frames.  These must be checked for wood rot, deterioration and weather damage.  Repair and replacement must meet original design and colors.

Gutters & Downspouts – Paint, repair or replace as needed.

Fences – Broken, missing or leaning fences must be straightened and/or repaired to original style.  Regular power washing and sealant is necessary to extend the life of wooden fences.

Decks – Decks must be in good repair and meet county code for design and safety.  Decks with peeling paint or worn stain must be cleaned and re-sealed.

Stair Rails – All stair rails should be checked for stability and movement.  Remove rust, secure bolts and paint with rust resistant black paint which is suitable for metal.

Stairs – Stone or concrete stairs should be free of cracks, chips or missing pieces.

Exterior Doors – All exterior doors and door hardware, including locks, doorbells and kick-plates, should be in working condition.  Door colors should match original colors (see below) as provided by the developer.  All homeowners must check their colors with the HOA before re-painting or re-staining their doors.

Garage Doors – Garage doors must be kept closed when not in use.  Garage doors and mechanisms must be kept in good working condition.  Repair, replacement and repaint must match original design and color.

Windows & Screens – Windows must not show signs of leakage.  Cracks and other visible damage must be repaired.  All screens must be free from tears or other defects.

Lights – All exterior light fixtures must be in good working condition.  Front yard lamp posts are the responsibility of the homeowner.  Automatic light sensors and lights must be functional to allow proper night time auto-lighting for safety and security reasons.  Homeowners are not allowed to remove or shut off automatic light sensors on lamp posts.

Landscaping – Excessive weeds and debris must be removed regularly.  Any growth that intrudes into public access space or neighboring property must be trimmed back to within homeowner’s own property lines.  Check fence lines for any growth that intrudes through fencing.  Homeowners who have growth coming onto their property are allowed to trim back the growth up to the border of their property lines.  This growth includes tree limbs, roots, shrubs, vines, etc.  Grass should be kept between 2.5” and 4” high.  All landscaping shall be kept from overgrowth.

Trash – Each lot owner is responsible for keeping all trash secured in containers designed for trash use.  Containers issued by the HOA trash vendor must be kept in good condition.  Each homeowner is responsible for contacting the number located on the trash vendor container to order repairs or replacement of the trash and/or recycle containers.  Homeowners are responsible for picking up loose or wind-blown trash which  originated from their property.
