Spring has SPRUNG and SUMMER will be here before you know it.
We are increasing our compliance inspections for the subdivision as we are seeing more weeds popping up all around the area. We know that it is spring time, and everyone is starting to get out to address the problem. THANK YOU!
Our compliance letters are done in three (3) phases:
Phase 1: Courtesy letter – this letter serves as a notice that a problem in your yard or around your home has been identified. There is no fine associated with this letter. You are given 21 days from the date of the letter to correct the problem (IN MOST CASES).
Phase 2: Violation letter 2 – This letter has a $25.00 fine associated with it. This letter is a second notice that a covenant/rule violation has been found at your property and has not been corrected. You will have an additional 10 days to correct the problem.
Phase 3: Violation Letter 3 – This violation letter carries a $50.00 fine for noncompliance with the subdivision covenants and rules. You now have one more 10-day period to correct the violation.
We hope not to go past phase 3. We do our best to work with homeowners to find needed help when requested. However, if a violation has gone past Phase 3 and the homeowner has not shown a willingness to talk with our office, the Board of Directors for the association will direct us as to what the next step should.be Possible actions might be to bring in a contractor to fix the problem. Charges for this contractor would be added to your account. If the violation is bad enough, the Board might choose to take legal action. Please note that fees and fines mentioned here will accrue interest if left unpaid.
Covenant violations affect everyone’s home value and are an eyesore in our lovely neighborhood. The Seven Bar North area is an area of very high demand in the Albuquerque real estate market. Help maintain our home values by following the rules and covenants.
We would like to welcome Ana Aragon to our team, Ana is our Compliance Manager and Assistant Community Manager. She is working with Sandy Diaz who is your Community Manager.
Great newsletter and I appreciate all our volunteers, but, but the weeds are increasing along with other violations.
