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.

Examples of rule violations for which penalties have been assessed include:

  • Discarding bags of trash on the property rather than placing them in the dumpsters
  • Not promptly replacing broken windows.
  • Storing bicycles, indoor furniture, bags, or boxes on the balconies or patios
  • Non-electric grills on balconies or patios, in violation of the fire code.

It is important to this community that these situations not be allowed to proliferate. Talltree South policy is to provide notice to correct the violation, provide a second notice and a hearing before the Board of Directors if
necessary, and impose the penalty if it is not corrected within the stated period of time.  Refer to Policy Resolution # ... for the full description of the process.

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.
