CURRENT VIOLATION FEE STARTS at $100.00 PER VIOLATION AND MAY ESCALATE


 

All unit owners were mailed the rules in early may. If you are a tenant, PLEASE ASK YOUR LANDLORD for a copy of the new rules, If you are a landlord, PLEASE make sure you get a copy of the rules to your tenants.

Hanover Square Condominiums provide all of the benefits of owning your home, and more, while at the same time providing you with more free time to enjoy these benefits.

Instead of spending your Saturdays mowing the lawn, weeding, or painting, you are free to do the things you enjoys doing. In addition, your new community provides you with access to almost every type of shopping and entertainment within walking distance

But, as always, there is a catch. As the old saying goes, "Nothing is free."

Not only is there the cost of the monthly assessment, which goes towards the upkeep of Hanover Square, but there is also the personal cost of complying with values and regulations.

This guide is designed to provide you with the general rules and regulations of this community, and to provide you with information concerning the various groups that help govern it.

As Rules and Regulations are changed, new information will published in the Newsletter and posted on the Association's web site at http://www.hanovwersquare.org.

No one likes rules, but they are a necessary part of any community. They serve two main functions. First, they help ensure that Hanover Square is a community we will all be proud to live in. Secondly, they help control costs.

Hanover Square is self governing. Its rules and activities are controlled by you, the Homeowner, through your elected Board of Directors and various committees. The extent of your participation or membership in these committees will directly affect the quality of life here at Hanover Square. We urge you to volunteer, even if it is just a tiny bit of time each month, to the community in an area of your interest. You will find it rewarding and fulfilling.

The rules listed here are for reference only. While we will try to keep the rules here the most up to date as we can, there my be times where is will not be. Rules may have, or may be, changed. Most up to date copies my be obtained by contacting the management office or be downloaded in the Download section of the website.

It is the policy of the Board of Directors to establish the minimum number of rules and regulations for the Hanover Square Condominium Association No. 1.  However, condominium living does require certain rules in order for each of the residents to enjoy the maximum benefits of his home without interfering with the rights of other residents to fully enjoy their homes.

The rules and regulations, including your rights and obligations, are set forth in the Declaration which you accepted when you purchased your unit.  The Declaration provides that the Board of Directors may adopt such reasonable rules and regulations, as it may deem advisable for the maintenance, conservation and beautification of the property, and for the health, comfort, safety and general welfare of the owners and occupants of the building

Experience has shown that cooperation and compliance with the rules and regulations of condominium living are necessary.  Even minor infractions could cause internal “condominium family” disputes.

These rules have been reviewed by legal counsel and approved by the Board of Directors.  This information contained herein is for the benefit of unit owner, residents and management to ensure better understanding and cooperation of all concerned.  Repeated violations of these rules and regulations will result in appropriate legal action being taken by the Board.

Violations are NOT Automatic. Below are the steps in the violation process.

  • Violation is witnessed and turned in to management.
    Violations may be turned in by management, board members, security, neighborhood watch or other residents via the web site or by written letter
     

  • Violation is received by management and "Notice of Violation" notice sent.
    Notice is sent to resident and/or owner of the unit involved.
    THIS IS ONLY A NOTICE! Fines are not assessed at this point.
    On the notice you will find the following information...Date and time of violation, type of violation, date violation will be heard by board of directors.
    At this point the resident who the violation was sent to can respond in writing to the management or wit till the date of the meeting when violation is heard.
     

  • Violation is discussed at meeting.
    At this point board of directors will discuss violation, read written response from resident, or talk with resident if they have come to meeting.
     

  • Determination is made on violation.
    Board of directors will determine if violation is voided, waived, or fined.
    Void = Mistake in violation. IE: Unit is empty or violation was for another unit.
    Waived = If resident has a reasonable excuse. IE: New to complex or emergency.
    Fined = Violation was found to be warranted.
     

  • Notice of determination is sent.
    After the board had made the determination at the meeting, management will sent a "Notice of Determination" is sent to resident and/or owner of unit letting them know what the determination was and IF a fine was assessed. If a fine is assessed it will appear on the owners next association bill.
     

NOTE: All association fees and violations are the responsibility of the unit owner, and must be paid on time and in full. If unit is rented out by the owner it is the owners choice weather or not to collect them from their tenants.

We sometimes make mistakes, sometimes you might not know about a rule, such as new residents, and sometimes you may not understand the reasoning behind a rule. It is our hope that you will read these rules try to understand them, and do your best to abide by them. After all the rules are here to make living here better for ALL of us.
