Inspection Reports
We received the preliminary downstairs report late
yesterday evening. The report is thorough and
comprehensive, but it has every unit’s structural
inspection in one report. For privacy reasons, we
have to separate these reports and send them out
individually. The board will be dividing up these
reports today and over the rest of the weekend.
The reports will go out ASAP. We will be contacting
those upstairs units that need to be inspected as
well.
I know everyone is anxious to get going on
rebuilding and get some clarity on what the future
of The Pines will hold. We have been working
tirelessly to expedite this process, the fact that the
new board started right before Thanksgiving and
that the holiday season is upon us, doesn’t help.
Regardless, things are moving along as fast as
possible.
Our goal and mission is to have an accurate,
honest, and reliable idea of what it will cost to
properly fix the HOA common areas. This should
have been done long ago by the previous board
but there’s no point in crying over spilt milk. Many
of the owners might be wondering why we can’t just
start rebuilding now and move in!? I would like to
be as clear as possible, rebuilding now is each
owners call. Just keep in mind, if your unit/building
needs structural, electrical, and/or plumbing repair,
then it would make sense to have those repairs
done first. Otherwise, you risk the chance of
having to do repairs twice.

Roof leaks
We have been in touch with the insurance adjuster
and they should be coming out next week to go
over all the roofs that have issues. He will
determine if it’s covered under insurance or if we
need the HOA to pay for it.

Action Hauling Lien Affidavit
Although this is just an affidavit, it does allow title
companies to decide, based on their own
discretion, if they want to close or not on our units.
It’s not an official court issued lien and we have
been talking to Bill Chesney and Kristi Slaughter,
the HOA lawyers, but it seems that they are taking
too long to move on this.

Bob Wolfe and I (Sina Zadeh), have started
working on getting this removed ASAP, if needed
we will outsource this to a property lawyer
specialist. Although, it seems very straightforward
and this is a PRIORITY for us.

Security
We have added a daytime security guard, as of
this coming Monday (Dec.11th), we will have a
security guard on duty 24hrs a day to deter any
criminal activity. If anyone is moving, PLEASE
inform the board so that we know. We want to
make sure that there are no more break-ins during
this vacant period of our units.

Also, please cooperate with the security guards on
duty, they are there for all the owners’ safety.
Once you show them your ID and they confirm you
are a resident, they should hand you a parking
pass so that next time you don’t have to stop.
Please place this on your dash for them to see as
your drive in (we are working on getting new
parking stickers). This is a temporary measure to
deter any further criminal activity, until we can have
most of the residents back in their units.
