The demand letter will be sent by first class mail and separately by certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid. The demand letter shall include a warning that if the violation(s) do(es) not cease and desist within the time period established pursuant to the next paragraph, measured from the date of the demand letter, a fine may be imposed, in addition to and not in lieu of other remedies available to the Association.


2. The alleged offender will be given a reasonable period to correct the violation. The period may be adjusted depending on the nature of the violation. In the event of complicated violations requiring a length of time to complete, two (2) time deadlines shall be given. The first shall state a date by which a substantial commencement at compliance must occur. The second shall be a reasonable date for completion, with continuous efforts used to achieve compliance between the two dates.  If the violation is in the nature of a one-time incident, the demand shall advise the offender that repeating the offense may result in a fine. In no event shall the time to cure be less than ten (10) days.

3. If the demand letter is ignored, or if compliance is not achieved as required by the demand letter, the alleged violator (and Owner of the Unit, if not the same) shall be sent a Notice of Fining Hearing, to be held simultaneously before the Board of Directors (“the Board”) and the House Rules or a similar committee (“the Committee”), which Notice will include the time, date and place of the hearing. The date of the hearing will not be less than ten (10) days after the date of the Notice. The Notice shall be sent first class mail and separately by certified mail, return receipt request, postage prepaid. The simultaneous Board and Committee meetings shall also be duly noticed, as required by law. The alleged violator (and Owner of Unit, if not the same) shall be entitled to representation by counsel and may present any evidence which they deem to be exculpatory or in mitigation of the alleged violation or the fine.

4. The Committee shall be composed of Unit Owners appointed by the Board of Directors, and who are not current directors or officers nor spouses of current officers or directors.  Nor shall a Committee member be the alleged violator (nor the Owner of the unit, if not the same) nor the spouse of the alleged violator (nor the Owner of the Unit, if not the same). The Committee shall be composed of an odd number of Unit Owners, having not less than three (3) members.  In order to maintain impartiality, the Board of Directors may appoint a panel of Committee members, any three (3) of whom may sit as the Committee on a violation, thereby permitting persons who may live near an alleged violator or who may otherwise be affected by an alleged violation(s) to be excused from service on a given violations.

5. The alleged offender shall be given a meaningful opportunity to be heard. The hearing shall be conducted by the Board in the presence of the Committee and the offender.  Both the Board and the alleged violator (and Owner of the Unit, if not the same) shall have the opportunity to cross-examine witnesses and present evidence. The Board will render a decision as to the violation, the amount of the fine to be imposed, if any, and the time for payment. The amount of the fine shall not exceed the maximum amount allowed by law.  If the Board sets a fine, the Committee then shall immediately proceed to consider this decision. If the majority of the Committee does not agree that a fine should be levied, or if it does not agree with the amount of the fine, then no fine may be levied. The Committee shall have no right to approve a different fine or to otherwise modify the terms set by the Board of Directors: it’s authority is limited to approving or disapproving the fine as established by the Board.


1. Minutes of the meeting will be kept by the Board and shall become part of the Association minutes of each body.

2. If the offender does not attend the hearing as scheduled, or does not timely request a reasonable alternative scheduling in writing in advance of the date of the scheduled fining hearing, the Board may consider such absence as some evidence concerning the validity of the alleged violation(s).


8. Failure of the offending party to pay the levied fine may result in legal proceedings to enforce payment, in which event the Association shall seek recovery of its reasonable attorney’s fees and costs, in addition to the fine.

9. Disapproval of the fine by the Committee shall have no impact of the right of the Association to take any other legal action it may deem appropriate in connection with the alleged violation(s). The foregoing procedure relates only to the imposition of a fine and is not required in the event that the Board declines to consider imposing a fine or fails to give advance notice of the hearing at which the matter will be considered. This procedure shall not be construed to be exclusive and shall exist in addition to all other rights and remedies to which the Association may be otherwise ent
