Consistent and thorough deed restriction enforcement is essential for
maintaining property values and preserving community pride. To be
effective and fair to all of the residents of your community, deed
enforcement must be consistent and thorough. Since the covenants and
restrictions of most homeowner association documents are vaguely
Deed Restriction Policy -A
detailed deed restriction enforcement policy should be adopted and adhered
to on a consistent basis. We suggest that the policy be reviewed and
updated on an annual basis.
ACC (Architectural Control
Committee) Guidelines -A detailed guideline of common requests
should be established to assure consistency in processing a homeowner's
request for a change to the exterior of his or her home. A procedure for
processing applications needs to be written and adopted. Over the years,
Randall Management has helped many Associations construct and revise their
Deed Restriction Policy and ACC Guidelines. This is a service offered free
of charge to our clients. In the event a deed restriction violation
requires legal action, an established set of policy, guidelines and
procedures, along with our computer generated Deed Restriction Reports,
will help to establish your community's constant and fair enforcement of
deed restriction violations.
Two thorough deed
restriction and ACC violation inspections per month. Please note that
additional inspections may be added to a contract or can be provided on
request for a nominal fee.
Unlimited Violation letters
Violation letters are computer generated and customized for each violation
to provide a clear and precise request to correct a violation. A copy of
the letter is automatically generated for both the homeowner and the
tenant when applicable. Randall Management will follow your community's
Deed Restriction Enforcement Policy and will customize letters to meet
your Association's enforcement philosophy.
We have found a
three letter sequence to be very effective:
Letter -A friendly, but formal notice to remind or notify the owner
that the violation exists and needs to be corrected on a timely basis.
(Grace period or the number of days given to correct the violation will be
customized according to your Deed Restriction Policy)
Letter- A friendly, but firm and formal warning that the violation
needs to be corrected. The letter encourages the owner to contact the
management company and provide a date that the violation will be
Third Letter -A third and final letter (unless
your policy calls for an additional letter) with a firm final warning that
the violation will be turned over to the attorney. Again, the letter urges
the homeowner to contact the management company if the violation cannot be
corrected in the time provided. Legal letters are usually avoided by using
at least a three letter series.
Digital Pictures- Pictures
of serious violations are taken for your Deed Enforcement Policy. This
pictures are placed on file in the event the violation requires legal
