LONGLEAF  NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION, INC.

VIOLATION PROCEDURE

All owners (or tenants if applicable) must respond in writing to violation notices, so the Board can review all responses if needed.
The 1st violation notice will specify a compliance date based upon the timeframes listed below.  Notices are sent via regular mail to the owner (and tenant if applicable).
The 2nd violation notice, sent via both certified and regular mail to the owner (and tenant if applicable), will specify the following:
(a) if the violation is not corrected within 10 days of the date of the notice, a fine of $100 per day (not to exceed a total fine of $1,000) will be levied against the owner (or tenant if applicable) for each day the violation continues to exist; and
(b) the owner (or tenant if applicable) has the option of appealing the fine by appearing at a hearing before the Fining Appeals Committee at a specified date, time, and place.
Please understand that the goal of a potential fine is not for the Association to collect money from residents, but rather to motivate residents to comply with Longleaf’s governing documents.
