For your reference, here are all the bylaws of this condo community.
TO ALL OWNERS AND RESIDENTS OF
Condominium living places a large number of people in a relatively small space and cannot provide the same level of personal freedom available to those living in single-family dwellings. As a result, condominium living requires a great deal of respect for the needs and rights of your neighbors as well as certain rules and regulations. The Rules and Regulations contained herein are designed to maintain the high quality of living we expect at Envoy Condominium and are necessary for the preservation of a pleasant living environment, as well as for the protection of your investment and the control of maintenance costs.
Condo HOA’s are legal nonprofit corporations and are governed by state law. Your Board of Directors are unit owners that are elected officers responsible for all Association Bylaws, Rules, Regulations and operations.
The House Rules and Regulations were formulated for Envoy Condominium in accordance with the Condominium Declaration and Bylaws. The Board of Directors of the Association, in accordance with the Bylaws, may supplement these rules and regulations from time to time as may be deemed necessary for the administration’s safety, care, and cleanliness of the complex, and for serving the health, comfort and convenience of all the owners thereof.
We have a unique and well-preserved older property and it will remain that way only with your help and cooperation. Living in close proximity with others requires consideration and a sense of responsibility for your actions. You have the responsibility of knowing and obeying the community rules and you are responsible for informing your renters, guests and neighbors of the rules.
The Board of Directors has the responsibility of enforcing these rules and regulations, and we hope you will cooperate with them fully. If you have questions about these rules, homeowner responsibilities, maintenance fees, payments, or other Association business, please contact Bluestone & Hockley Real Estate Services, (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)-
