Definition of ‘Good maintenance and repair’ and ‘good frontage’ (as approved by the OTF Board summer 2011)
Section 8 of the Declaration of Restrictions states, in part: Building Exteriors. The exteriors of all buildings in OAK TREE FARM, including walls, doors, windows and roofs, shall be kept in good maintenance and repair. In order to be consistent in enforcing this standard, the board discussed, and voted to approve the following minimum requirements to define what ‘good maintenance and repair’ means:
All applicable exterior surfaces are painted, with paint that is not faded, cracking or peeling
Garage doors are in good condition, with no rotted or broken areas visible from the street
Porch or front of house railings should not be in disrepair or discolored
Driveways, walkways and concrete surfaces should not have large visible cracks, spalling (chipping or crumbling surface) or be in disrepair due to settling.
Siding, trim and windows should all be in good repair, with no missing or broken parts.
Section 9 of the Declaration of Restrictions states, in part: Frontage Every residence erected on any lot in OAK TREE FARM shall front or present good frontage on the street on which said lot fronts. In order to be consistent in enforcing this standard, the board discussed, and voted to approve the following minimum requirements to define what ‘good frontage’ means:
A lawn that is mowed and trimmed regularly, and not over-run with weeds.
Trees and bushes that are being trimmed and maintained Flower beds should not be overgrown with weeds or in a state of disrepair
Weeds should not be growing in cracks of driveways or sidewalk
Dead trees must be removed
Please try to adhere to these requirements to ensure that our neighborhood is attractive and maintains the standards we all expected when we purchased houses in this neighborhood which in turn keeps our property values high.
