Virginia law requires that sellers provide a resale disclosure packet to their buyer. If you are selling your home, it is recommended that you order the packet as soon as you place your home on the market to avoid any delays once you have a contract. An inspection will be performed of the exterior of your home before the documents are produced. To order the documents, please contact management.
**These documents do not comprise all of the information required for resale disclosure**
* Meeting minutes are approved in the following month's board meeting and are posted to the website shortly thereafter
The Hiddenbrook Homes Association has an Architectural Review Committee (ARC) responsible for approving or disapproving all planned changes, additions or improvements to neighborhood houses or the landscaping (including fences).
Exterior changes to your house include, but are not limited to, replacement windows, doors, storm doors, garage doors, sheds, additions (attached or free standing structures), roofing, and paint color, landscaping redesign, new fence construction, installation of hard-scapes, expansion or paving of driveways, removal of a fence, replacing a fence and changes to an existing fence by applying pigmented stains.
In other words, if it changes the appearance of your house or lot, you must have approval. It may prevent you from having to redo or remove improvements, construction, landscaping and alterations on the lot if they do not conform to or harmonize with the existing surroundings and structures.
The ARC Committee's decisions for the approval/disapproval of changes and alterations are governed by the covenants and a set of guidelines. These guidelines also govern the care and maintenance of each homeowners property. The ARC committee and the property manager perform a required yearly, community-wide inspection to ensure compliance. Follow up inspections and response to reported issues are performed on an ongoing basis.
