Water Dripping from Above
Posted By flanglois on August 13, 2018
Occasionally we receive complaints that water, excess plant water, cleaning water etc. spilling from an upper unit to lower unit(s) causes damage, stains and hard to remove water spots.
It is important to know that spilling or dropping anything for that matter from your balcony is a violation of the rules and regulations – not to mention a safety hazard to your neighbors. You can also be responsible for repair costs and/or be fined in accordance with the HOA’s governing documents. See enclosed rules for additional information.
When watering your plants or when using other liquids on your balcony, please be careful to avoid any spills. Always use water tight saucers beneath your plants. And don’t forget to remind your housekeeper and guests of this important policy.
If you accidentally spill or drop something from your balcony, please report this to the front desk immediately so we can attempt to mitigate any potential damages.
If you experience water spillage on your balcony or windows it’s important that you try to determine its source and report it to the front desk staff immediately. It helps with the investigation and if necessary non-compliance proceedings if staff has witnessed the infraction firsthand. If that’s not possible, please report the incident as soon as it’s discovered and we’ll try to determine the source through process of elimination.
If you or your housekeeper would like to clean your balcony, the HOA can lend you a wet/dry shop-vac for this purpose. Just ask the front desk when you are ready to clean your balcony.
Thank you for your consideration and cooperation.
