Your Application Was Submitted Successfully!
Please read the following regarding your project.
Thank you for submitting an application to make an improvement or modification to your home and/or property. Our team will process your application and supporting documentation and forward to your Community's Architectural Review/Change Committee (ACC/ARC) for approval.
If the committee has any questions or needs additional information, a message will be sent to the email address you provided in the application. If you have additional documentation you need to provide or questions, please contact our ACC/ARC service team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include your name, property address, community name and a description of your project so that the team can pare it with the correct application.
How long will review take?
Each community has a certain number of days permitted for the ACC/ARC committee to process an architectural modification request. Please consult your community's governing documents for the exact number of days allotted.
Do NOT start your project until you receive written approval
Do not start the modification without written approval from your Association. Any construction or alteration to the subject property prior to approval of the ACC/ARC is strictly prohibited. Improvements and modifications made without approval may be subject to penalties and fines up to and including removal.
For example, if you commence or complete any construction or alteration to the subject property and a complete application was not submitted or any part of your application is disapproved, you could be fined as well as required to return the subject property to its original condition at your own expense. If you refuse to do so and the Association incurs any legal fees related to your construction and/or application, you could be required to reimburse the Association for all such legal expenses incurred.
Do not stray from your proposal
Improvements and modifications must be installed as submitted and approved by the ACC/ARC committee. Any variation from the original application must be resubmitted for approval. An inspection of the improvements may be made upon completion to ensure the modification has been done to specification.
Plans may need to be updated or revised from time to time. Any changes or revisions to any and all approved plans must be resubmitted for approval. Improvements and modifications made without approval may be subject to penalties and fines up to and including removal.
Abide by your Community's CC&Rs
Each Community has written architectural and design requirements that you must adhere to per your Community's Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions. The ACC/ARC review, comments, and/or approvals do not relieve you (the Owner) of your responsibility and obligation to comply with the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (unless a specific exemption as permitted in the Declaration is granted by the ACC/ARC).
Workmanship, Scheduling, Permits
Any approval is contingent upon improvements or modifications being completed in a neat and workmanlike manner and reasonably within the construction schedule listed on the application. It is both you and your contractor's duty to determine that the proposed improvement is structurally, mechanically and otherwise safe and that it is designed and constructed in compliance with applicable building codes, fire codes, other laws or regulations and sound practices. Applications for all required permits are your responsibility. Nothing herein shall be construed as a waiver of modification of any codes.
It is recommended that a survey is performed to ensure that the requested improvement installed on the property is not encroaching on a neighboring property. Any encroachment issues that arise between neighboring owners will not be addressed by the Association. The Association's ACC/ARC committee reviews the requests to ensure continuity and uniformity is being met in the community and to protect property values; the committee does not review if an encroachment has occurred. Each owner is responsible for any encroachment issues that arise. Damage to adjoining lots or common area is the your responsibility.
Damages to Common Areas
Your project shall not damage or detrimentally affect the proper drainage of any common areas or surrounding lots. You are responsible to reimburse the Association for any damages to common areas caused by any reason, including drainage problems.
