FGHA currently conducts monitoring of the association's 1,501 properties. The property maintenance committee (PMC) reviews compliance according to the association's Rules & Regulations (R&Rs).
The PMC will send notices via HOALife, its software vendor for data management. Using this software allows homeowners to manage correspondence concerning their non-compliance issue online. The violation is discreet to homeowner and PMC. PMC will not enter onto homeowner property.
Notices will be sent via US Postal Service unless homeowner OPTS IN to receive all notifications electronically (please see "General Authorization For Electronic Notification" in the Forms section of our website).
Homeowners who are not in compliance will receive 1st, 2nd, or 3rd notice, identification of the rule in question, date of notice, and photographic evidence of non-compliance.
Should a property be found to not meet the R&R, homeowners (and tenants as applicable) will receive a 1st notice indicating corrective actions that need to be taken. If no correction is accomplished within the date specified, a 2nd notice may be given notifying homeowners to expect a 3rd notice accompanied by fine should they remain in non-compliance (consult R&R Schedule of Fines).
The goal of property maintenance review is to have a neighborhood that is aesthetically pleasant. Success is not defined by citations or fines. The property maintenance committee (PMC) applies the Rules & Regulations (R&Rs) adopted by our homeowners’ association.
A summary of findings from the PMC are published within the meeting minutes each month. Properties are not identified by address to protect privacy. Information concerning a property's compliance or fine status is never shared with other homeowners.
According to the FGHA ACC Guidelines, approval is required for all exterior work to a home in our community. An Architectural Control Committee (ACC) Form must be submitted and approved prior to the start of any work. On the Forms section of this website, each of the files may be clicked on to download, fill in digitally, save and print.
The completed form may be:
Turn around time for approval is generally 7-10 days. If you have a "rush" item, please indicate on the form so the ACC chair can call you with approval/questions.
The specifics for fencing can be found on page 3 & 4 in our ACC Guidelines. You should also review the Architectural Control Rules & Regulations. General & special covenants regarding fencing can also be found in Article IX & X in our CC&Rs. All fencing projects require an ACC form to be submitted and approved prior to beginning the project.
No. Tree removal from your Fairwood Greens property does not require FGHA approval. You may need to check with King County for any required permits.
This question has come up a lot, especially when news of mail theft is shared. The desire for a locking mailbox is up to individual homeowners to pursue. More information can be found in our Report On Locking Mailboxes.
In September 2021, the report Fairwood Greens & Adult Family Homes was released in response to homeowners' inquiries.
Fairwood Greens Homeowners' Association practices accrual accounting (as opposed to cash accounting). This means that revenue is recorded as it is earned and expenses as they are incurred.
Per RCW 64.90.530 (1) The association must prepare, or cause to be prepared, at least annually, a financial statement of the association in accordance with accrual-based accounting practices, a common requirement for HOAs.
Accrual accounting is a much more accurate method of accounting as it enables a view of profit and loss a business has experienced in an entire period.
The Association operates as a business and charges assessments to homeowners, creating a projected income that allows the Association to budget for projected expenses.
On the monthly Treasurer Report (found within minutes of the Association Board Meeting), the projected annual assessment income is entered into the accounting software and is split between a 12-month period (the current budget year). The Assessment Income and Budget Income are the same in the Treasurer Report. This reflects the income that was accrued for that month (accrual accounting).
Concrete, asphalt or “Bridgit” rubber ramps are not allowed or permitted by King County Road Department. If the road crews encounter an installation and it interferes with their work, they may or may not remove it. As such, the FGHA cannot approve ACC forms that might be submitted. The FGHA has no rules or guidelines concerning curb ramps. Installation is at homeowner’s risk.
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org that is directed to our office manager.
Information provided is used with strictest of confidence and privacy protection by Fairwood Greens Homeowners' Association (FGHA). We will make contact via email only with information of importance. Our security vendor will use telephone numbers on file to alert any emergency situation at the property (including open garage doors).
