Amendment Passed

The amendment to the Talltree South Bylaws was passed and has been recorded. The amendment:
  • Reduces the quorum for the Annual Meeting from 50% to 25%. (50% is difficult to get; many associations today have quorum requirements of as little as 10%).
  • Allows a late fee that is $40 or more, to encourage timely payment of all assessment obligations.
  • Updates the limit to the amount the Board can spend on additions and improvements to the property (not maintenance) without getting approval of all the unit owners from an out-of-date fixed amount, to a percentage of the annual budget.
  • Allows the Association to recover its reasonable legal fees and costs in any legal or administrative action in which the Association prevails.
  • Clarifies the Association's enforcement of rules, including special charges and suspension of privileges, following the enforcement procedures as required by the Virginia Condominium Act.
  • Clarifies the allocation of repair and maintenance responsibilities of the unit owners and the Association in the even of fire or other casualty
  • Allows the use of technology such as electronic signature, e-mail, and electronic voting, but require reasonable accommodation and nontechnology alternatives for those without the capability or desire to use technology.
  • Lets the Board select the date for the Annual Meeting in October, rather than require it to be October 15.

Condominium Fees

The condominium fees, also known as condominium assessments, are your share of the cost of the common expenses: the repair, replacement, and maintenance of what are known as the "common elements" and payment of common utilities and Talltree South's share of the costs of the swimming pool. The "common elements" include the external grounds and parking lots, and the shared portions of the buildings such as the roofs and hallways. The condominium documents include a complete, legal definition of the common elements. A budget is prepared yearly and is provided to each unit owner.
