KING FARM REMINDER
SPRING IS IN THE AIR
Each year, King Farm Citizens Assembly inspects the exterior of every home and notifies the residents of maintenance or compliance issues that need to be addressed. The purpose of this inspection is not to create additional work for you. Instead, it is intended to protect the market value of your home and the overall appearance of the King Farm community by ensuring that residents maintain their property and are in compliance with the Design Guidelines. Some of the things we focus on during inspections include:
· Is there any peeling paint or rotted wood trim?
· Are your door and window screens in good condition?
· Are there any shingles missing on your roof?
· Are your shutters faded, cracked, chipped or missing?
· How does the siding on your home look? Is it moldy, should it be power washed?
· Does your fence need power washing and/or painting?
· Do your steps or sidewalk need to be cleaned or repaired?
Is the landscaping of your yard being maintained properly? (i.e., is there any dead plant, tree, weed-trees, or shrub material, are there any overgrown shrubs, trees, bushes, are the planting beds edged and mulched, is there any excessive weedy or bare areas of your lawn turf area)
If any part of your property has been damaged over the winter, and you don’t want to receive a “Annual Inspection Notice” from the Management office, contact us and let us know you’re aware of the damage and that you are taking the appropriate steps to repair it. Even if it’s something small or trivial, it’s a good idea to keep management in the loop as to your plan of action. Let’s take pride in keeping King Farm Citizens Assembly looking the best it can be.
Please keep in mind that before you start on any exterior modification to your home you need to check to make sure whether or not approval from the King Farm Community Architect and the King Farm Architectural Design Trust (ADT) is required. The documents of the King Farm Citizens Assembly Equity, Resolution No. 1 are posted on online at www.kingfarm.org . Many changes are routine in nature and require no approval, but please check first to make sure before tackling a large project. Also, if you’ve done work in the past and didn’t get approval, you’ll need to obtain retroactive approval, so make sure you fill out that application. If you have questions about the process or want to find out if your installation needs approval, feel free to contact the Community Manager’s office by phone, email, or in person; remember, we’re here to help you out.
