Repair, Maintenance & Replacement

The SSV Declaration divides the maintenance, repair, and replacement responsibilities between the Owners and the HOA. Usually these types of projects are handled by outside contractors hired by the responsible party, which then involves numerous issues including insurance coverage of the contractors, county permits and code compliance, parking and/or debris removal. These Guidelines are intended to (i) clarify the responsibilities for maintenance, repair, and replacement, (ii) ensure that both the Owners’ and the HOA’s interests are protected during these projects, and (iii) create a history of projects and changes to SSV homes.


Special Note To Current & Future Homeowners Interested In Doing Any Remodeling or Restoration:  Please review the Request Process for Owner Maintenance, Repair and Replacement in the drop down below PRIOR to retaining a contractor to assure they can accomodate the insurance and other requirements.
