The developer of Tipton Lakes delegated and assigned to the Tipton Lakes Community Association the power of owning, maintaining and administering the areas and facilities; administering and enforcing the covenants, conditions and restrictions; collecting and disbursing the assessments and charges hereinafter created; and promoting the recreation, health, safety and welfare of the residents.
In order for the Association to do its job more efficiently, we are going to implement a new process in 2017 with regard to covenant violations. If staff are out touring the property and observe a violation, they will place a hanger on the front door indicating the property violation and the time frame for correcting it. Staff will then follow up at the end of the allowable correction time to confirm that the violation has been corrected.
Previously, staff would come back to the office and send the homeowner a letter in the mail with the same violation information. This would take additional and unnecessary staff time and postage costs. An additional problem with using U.S. mail is that members do not check their mail daily with the use of centralized mailboxes, and therefore the member is not attending to the violation within the allowable correction time.
Some of the more common violations that staff will use the door hangers for include:
• Trash toters visible from the street.
• Grass that needs to be mowed.
• Landscaping beds that need to be weeded or trimmed.
• House that needs to be power washed.
• Toys that need to be picked up in the yard.
• Recreational vehicles and trailers that are parked in your driveway or in front of your home.
Covenant violations that are more detailed or are cluster specific will be handled with a formal letter. Please contact the Association office at 812-342-8522 if you have questions or concerns. The Association strives to provide compliance as we partner with our members to uphold our mission.
