Whether you are making changes in your landscaping or inside your home, one crucial thing to consider is your homeowner’s association (HOA). If you live in an HOA community, you may need to seek board approval first before you can alter parts of your property. This organization implements rules in your area and determines what you can and cannot do during your project.
Here are things to keep in mind when remodeling a kitchen in an HOA community.
Set Reasonable Working Hours
It is essential to schedule construction in hours that would make the least disruption to your neighbors. Don’t allow your contractor to start too early in the morning or keep working late at night. You can avoid conflict by completing construction between 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. During these hours, most people are either in school or at work.
Set a Project Time Frame
The longer it takes your project to complete, the more inconvenience you and your neighbors will experience. You and your HOA should agree on a time frame to ensure your home is not in a poor state for months. A reputable general contractor with experience in HOA communities would make sure you meet this deadline.
Make Sure Workers Clean Up the Site Daily
HOAs usually have rules regarding daily cleanup when doing home repairs and renovations. Making sure that your home is clean at the end of each working day will keep your property safe and help avoid complaints from neighbors.
Start Your Project Without Getting Approval
Before starting any work in your home, you should get project approval from your HOA board first. You can determine which documents you need to submit by reading your rules and regulations thoroughly. Even if your contractor has experience in HOA communities, it is still your responsibility to know your community’s rules and regulations and make sure they are followed.
Forget to Let Your HOA Know Your Project Is Done
Do notify your HOA board about the completion of your kitchen remodel. Another thing you shouldn’t forget to do is to clear the liens that may have been placed on your property for the construction.
