New enforcement measures

Penalties for breaches of Restrictive Covenants

The Board has determined that the owners of lots that are in breach of the Restrictive Covenants shall be subject to a $1,000 fine for each month or part thereof that the breach persists.

Specifically, this is intended to dissuade owners from storing property such as trailers, containers, boats or other vehicles on empty lots. Fines shall be imposed from April 1, 2011 and be subject to our standard debt collection procedures and penalties in the event that they remain unpaid.

Penalties for property stored on common areas

Pursuant to the notice issued on November 23, 2010 concerning the removal of property from common areas, the Association reserves the right to remove said property and sell it to recover removal costs.

The Board has determined that any property that is removed by the Association shall be stored at a cost of $1,000 per month (or part thereof) per item for a period of 3 months. Thereafter, the property shall be sold and any proceeds applied to the owner’s account.

Restricted entry for residents not in good standing

The Board has determined that residents with past due accounts or those that are in breach of the Restrictive Covenants may not enter the property via the main entrance. Our security team will be issued with a restricted entry list and will refuse entry at the main entrance to those listed residents and their visitors.

Use of boat slips

The Board has determined that only boats registered to residents may use the boat slips within Sandyport and registration details must be filed with our security department. Boats moored in slips that are not registered with residents of Sandyport shall not be permitted re-entry into the development.

  1. Ronella,

    Thank you for confirmation. This helps put my mind at rest that non complying lot owners should now be brought into line to fulfil their obligations so as not to disdavantage exisitng homeowners. Congratulations to the team at Sandyport; you guys are breath of fresh air!!

  2. In the November update the Board announced that owners of vacant lots were to be reminded of the terms of Restrictive Covenants and would be asked to remdy such breaches. Will the imposition of fines of $1,000 per month announed in this March update apply to owners of vacant lots where construction has not yet started and where those lots have not been landscaped.
