Terms and Conditions
The Owner(s) of the property listed above are the only authorized parties eligible to request architectural improvements and modifications.
It is both the Owner's and 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. The Owner is responsible for any building permits that may be required, building code compliance, survey of property lines and arranging for required inspections and approvals. Nothing herein shall be construed as a waiver or modification of any codes. County or city approval does not constitute Association approval. If connecting to a neighbor's existing fence, written permission must be provided from the neighbor to connect. The Owner hereby grants permission to the Architectural Change Committee/Architectural Review Committee ("ACC/ARC") of the Community to enter the property and make reasonable observation and inspections associated with the modification request and completion of the project.
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. 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.
The Owner must adhere to your community's Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions. The ACC/ARC review, comments, and/or approvals do not relieve the Owner of their 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).
The Owner bears full responsibility (including costs) for placement of any structure in relation to all easements and buffers and obtaining necessary permits. Modifications are to be constructed as approved and placed within the Owner's property lines. If final install does not comply with guidelines, relocation will be at the Owners’ expense. If any structures are erected before approval, the ACC/ARC Committee may mandate removal at the homeowners’ expense.
The Owner acknowledges and agrees that the ACC/ARC and Association assume no liability resulting from the approval or disapproval of any plans submitted. The ACC/ARC and the Association assume no liability and make no representations regarding the adequacy or quality of any submitted plans or whether such plans comply with any or all governing authority requirements. The Association, the ACC/ARC and any contracted employee or member thereof, shall not be liable in damages or otherwise because of the approval or non-approval of any improvement.
