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.
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.
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 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.
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.
Owners may renovate, improve, or alter their units, provided that such renovation does not disturb or remove any structural or load-bearing wall within your unit.
