Forms and Procedures

This section includes Talltree South forms and procedures for common situations.

Security

If you notice suspicious activity, domestic violence, vandalism, late-night noise, traffic violations, or other serious problems please call the police and notify the site office the next day.

Water Leaks

It is important that every owner maintain his or her unit so that it does not leak, but sometimes accidents occur such as overflowing tubs, leaking pipes, or showers with failing caulk or grout. If a leak originates in a unit, it is the responsibility of that unit owner to fix the problem and any damage caused to other units or to the common elements. If a leak originates in a common element, it is the Association's responsibility.

Rule Violations

The Virginia Condominium Act allows the imposition of a $50 charge for a single violation, or a $10 per day charge for a continuing violation until the violation is corrected, for up to 90 days.

Problems with Neighbors

Condominium living requires cooperation between neighbors. Activities in and about your unit should not interfere with the rights, comforts, or convenience of the other residents. The Fairfax County 24-Hour Noise Ordinance includes television, stereos and parties, as well as barking and/or howling animals.

Action Request Forms

Action Request Forms are provided in the laundry rooms and in the site office. Residents may submit Action Request Forms to the Talltree South site office to report common element maintenance problems such as lights not working, clogged gutters, etc., and the office will process an Action Request.

Move In / Move Out Procedures

Unit owners must schedule their moves (or those of their tenants) with the on-site Management Office at least 5 business days prior to the date of the move-in. A $100 move-in fee is charged. In addition, should the move cause damage to the common elements, the owner of the unit is responsible for the damages and cost of repair.

Keys

The Bylaws require that each owner supply the Association with a working set of keys for emergency access and to perform other necessary duties. The keys are not a lock-out service, however, if you have provided the office with a key, the on-site manager can give you access to your unit during office hours. If your front and rear doors are keyed differently, you may want to provide both keys to the office in case an emergency blocks one door.

Mailbox keys are solely the responsibility of the Unit Owner. Neither the Association nor the Postal Service has a key for your individual mailbox. If your key is lost, the safest recourse is to replace the mailbox lock using the services of a locksmith.
