Property Upkeep and Your Responsibility as Homeowners
The Association has observed that some properties are in need of upkeep, maintenance, and repair. As homeowners in Dunlop Farms, we all share a responsibility to our community and ourselves to keep our properties up to standards. The is very important for preserving the values of our own properties as well as those of our neighbors.
Please take a moment on a regular basis to inpsect and evaluate the condition of your property. For example:
- Are roof shingles loose or falling off?
- Does the siding and shutters need cleaning or re-painting?
- Are there weeds growing in the driveway cracks and is the driveway in need of repair?
- Are trash and recycle receptacles properly out of sight from the front of the property?
If you have questions on property upkeep responsibilities, please contact the Association.
Architecture Compliance for Changes on Your Property
The Association has a duty to ensure that any change on your property (e.g., structural addition to your home, building a detached garage, etc.) is compliant with the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Regulations (CC&R), which encumbers all property lots in Dunlop Farms. The fact that you own property in Dunlop Farms legally predisposes your agreement to comply with the CC&R. This compliance is separate and distinct fro any Colonial Heights building permit you might obtain from the city. If you are considering any changes to your property, simply notify the Association of the scope and plans of your project in advance of any construction taking place. You will be contacted by the Association.
