Late ARB Application Fee of $150.00
As part of Oakleaf East POA’s continuing efforts to encourage compliance through our members’ use of community policies and procedures, the Association, through the Board of Directors, voted to adopt a new policy. The policy states, “whereby when an ARB Request which is made after work has been started or completed, it will incur a Late ARB Application Fee of $150.00.” The payment of the $150.00 Late Application Fee does not guarantee approval for the ARB Request, and the fee is non-refundable. If a member refuses to pay the Late Application Fee, the member will be subject to the normal compliance process and treated as any other violation. Some methods the Association uses to encourage member compliance include: fining, self-help remedies, demand letters, and mandatory pre-lawsuit mediation requests. For emergency repairs associated with roof leaks or other Estoppel-related items, this policy might not apply. Members must ensure to properly submit the ARB Request via a webform and receive a confirmation by the Association that it was deemed an emergency situation, or urgent matter, to avoid the fee.
The good news? The fee for an ARB Request that is acted upon by the committee prior to any work being performed, is currently FREE($0.00). ARB Requests are easy to submit and ARB meetings are now being held approximately every two weeks, where possible. Members, or their contractors, are always welcome to email the ARB Committee with questions they might have about a proposed project by using the ARB@OakLeafEastPoa.com email address
