ENFORCEMENT OF RULES AND REGULATIONS

A system of penalties has been established to ensure compliance with the Rules and Regulations of Fairway Mews Community Association.  The Board believes that the enforcement procedure will result in greater community awareness of reasonable conduct that all unit owners have the right to expect from each other.  If the violator is not a unit owner, the owner will be provided with copies of all correspondence pertaining to the violation and any ensuing penalties.   The unit owner is ultimately responsible for all fines and the removal of the violations.

Fines may be imposed for violation of any of the above rules. The F.M.C.A. General Manager approves the appropriate fines. A fine may not be imposed until the following procedures have been complied with.

  1.  If a violation of the rules is alleged to the Office.  The Office will notify the alleged violator in writing to cease and desist from the violation.  This notification will include (a) the nature of the alleged violation, (b) the action required to remove the violation and (c) notification of a grace period of (10) days with which the violation may be removed without penalty.  Should the violation continue beyond the grace period, the following fine(s) will be imposed by the Covenant Committee:

Step # 1 – If the violation is not remedied within the 10 day grace period.                 $50

Step # 2 – If the violation is not remedied within 2 weeks of receiving the initial fine. $100

Step # 3 – Every two weeks a $100 fine will be issued until the violation is rectified.

A second offense for the same prior violation will have no grace period and the fine process will start on Step # 2 immediately. 

  1. The violator may request a hearing within 5 days after imposition of the fine.  The violator may present his/her case to the Covenant Committee and the Committee will decide based on the available information regarding the alleged violation whether or not any fines should be lifted.
