On this section of the web site we will try to provide information about what you may need to know when doing home improvements to your unit.
Certain improvements to your unit will need to meet the
guidelines of the association and must be approved BEFORE work is done.
To obtain approval you must fill out an "Hanover Square ACR Application"
(formally ACC ap). Also
Some improvements MUST have permits obtained by the village. You can get these
by either contacting American Community Property Management or by downloading them from the
DOWNLOADS section of this
web site. If you are unsure if an improvement you are planning to do needs board
approval or a village permit, please contact American
Community Property Management and
speak with Valerie.
If improvements are done without board approval and do not meet the guidelines set forth the board may ask that you make changes to meet the guidelines. To avoid this and possible extra costs PLEASE GET APPROVAL BEFORE YOU DO ANY WORK
