Amensty Period for Late Fees

The BOD has chosen to initiate an amnesty period in which late fees (not annual dues) will be forgiven for all accounts in which dues are paid up to date. This will include accounts in which the dues were previously paid, but late fees were not. This gives property owners an opportunity to become current on any past due balance with no late fee assessment. The amnesty period will end on March 31st. Discussion of late fee amount will be placed on the April agenda after results of participation in amnesty period are received. Accounts left delinquent will be evaluated for further action after amnesty period has ended.  Please be diligent in maintaining your account and contact Goodwin in order to review any late fee assessments. You can find the contact information for Goodwin in the Information section above. If you have any questions the BOD may be able to answer please email pineforestpoa@gmail.com

BEFORE BUILDING ANY STRUCTURE, BE AWARE

All structures must be approved, in writing, by the Architectural Control Committee (ACC).  Failure to comply with this Covenant requirement can result in SUBSTANTIAL FINES.  A permit must be filed and approved, in writing, by the ACC before construction begins.

Permit fees are $500 for new homes or additions to living areas.  While an approved permit is required for all structures, there is no charge for permitting additional, non-living area, structures.  This includes swimming pools, fences, retaining walls, driveways, storage buildings, patio/deck additions above ground level, to mention a few.

Failure to secure a permit before starting construction will incur another $1,000 fine.  If the Property Owners’ Association is forced the hire a lawyer to enforce compliance, the lot owner will be additionally charged for all legal costs with a minimum charge of $1,500 for legal fees.  This legal fee applies to all enforcement actions, whether for new construction or simple compliance with the Covenants by existing homeowners.

Wait! Before You Plant a Pine Tree, Read This
