From: Wakefield Sharp Management Company, Nancy Kawata HOA President
Hamilton has had wonderful renters. Our homeowners and renters have usually maintained the property without Association enforcement. Nonetheless, homeowner associations often experience the following issues with renters:
- renters tend to violate association rules more often than owners,
- renters have more calls to the police than owners,
- renters & landlords are less inclined to invest in the upkeep of their property,
- landlords are less likely to volunteer to assist the community,
- a high percentage of renters depresses property values,
- lenders recognize the problems associated with renters and are less inclined to loan or will lend at a higher interest rate in communities with a high percentage of renters.
Written Rental Agreement
There must be a written rental agreement specifying that the renter(s) shall be subject to all provisions of the Governing Documents. Homeowners are subject to disciplinary action or other actions by the Association to enforce the Governing Documents. The rental agreement must identify all Occupants. Financial information may be redacted.
Governing Documents to Tenant
The Owner must provide any non-Owner resident with current copies of all the Governing Documents. The Owner shall also provide copies of any subsequent changes or additions.
The Owner shall provide written notice to the Association of the name, day and evening telephone numbers and email address for each renter and any other residents within ten (10) days of the change in occupancy. The notice shall include a statement of the rental term and the total number of residents. The Owner shall provide the Association with a copy of the rental agreement. Dollar amounts and extraneous information may be redacted.
Upon Association request, the Owner shall provide information on renter(s) vehicles, including number of vehicles, make/model and license plate number(s), registered owner(s) and evidence of insurance.
Hamilton Field’s Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CC&Rs) specify that visual changes to the exterior of your home and lot must be approved in advance by your neighborhood's Architectural Committee. The application process includes informing your neighbors and getting their signature that they have been notified. The process can take up to 60 days. Owners need preapproval for all noticeable (to the association or neighbors) visual changes including tree removal, new mailboxes, changes to landscaping or hardscape, altered fencing, new structures of any kind, and new external systems including solar systems. If you are repainting your home the same colors, or replacing a tree with the same variety in the same location, no approval is required.
