Tarpon Bay Villas Rules & Regulations


Adapted from the Rules & Regulations distributed at the annual meeting, Jan. 8, 2005, and updated in January 2007. This is not an official statement of the TBVHOA and is to be used only as a guideline. Here are links to the offical documents filed with the County and State.

VEHICLES: TRUCK REGULATIONS HAVE BEEN UPDATED to allow for small pickups without signs and/or equipment left in the bed. These trucks must be for personal use and are not to exceed 1/2 ton maximum load capacity (Department of Transportation Class 1 and 2). Vehicles of tradesmen and working personnel are exempt from truck regulations for the duration of time required to complete their work daily. This is outlined in the Second Amendment to the Third Amended Declaration of Covenants, Restrictions and Easements filed with the county.

There is a limit of two parking spaces per unit. One is assigned and the second is classified as "Guest" and should be in the spaces alloted for your building. Do not park in an assigned spot that is not yours. Be sure your family members and visitors are aware of this.

PETS: Only unit owners may have pets. Tenants may not have pets on the association property. Pets must be on a leash at all times when outside of the units. Pets must be walked outside of the Tarpon Bay Villas complex. Owners are responsible for the complete removal of any waste products produced by their pets.

RENTALS: No unit can be leased unless the owner has been a resident in the unit for at least a year. All renters must be approved by the HOA board.

SIGNS: No owner, nor his agent, nor tenant may place for sale, for rent, or any other signs on any property within the Tarpon Bay Villas complex

ALTERATION ON UNIT: Unit owners are specifically cautioned that their right to make an addition, change, alteration or decoration to the exterior appearance of any portion of their units is subject to the provision of Declaration of Covenants, Restrictions and Easements. Requests for such additions, changes or alterations must be presented in writing to the Board of Directors for approval, accompanied by written plans or drawings and specifications.

In order to obtain approval, contractors or subcontractors must provide to the association proof of insurance before commencing work on the property and such forms as required by the Association must be executed by the unit owner to indemnify and protect the Association against damage, negligence, liens or claims that arise from such work. The Association must be protected or indemnified as the mechanics liens and/or claims arising from work done on the units.

WASHING CARS: Water inside the unit is metered city water. There will be no washing of cars with city water. Well water spigots, located in the parking area, are to be used for this purpose.

CLOTHES LINES: Clothes or any other article should not be draped or hung over fences, shrubs or balconies. Clothes lines on patios should not be readily visible from outside. (NOTE: Recent legislation requires the allowance of energy-saving clothes drying, but allows associations to regulate hours and locations. This is currently being reviewed.)

DISTURBING NOISE OR ACTIVITIES: No owner or tenant may permit any resident within their unit nor any guest to make any disturbing noises or create any disturbance that will interfere with the rights, comforts or convenience of others. Stereos, televisions, radios or musical instruments must be played in a reasonable manner so as to not disturb other residents.

PERSONAL PROPERTY: Personal property of unit owners, guests or lessees shall not be stored outside of units.

ANTENNAS: No exterior radio or television antenna installation or other wiring shall be made without written consent of the Board of Directors.

PROCEDURES FOR OWNERS ABSENCE: In order for the Association to properly maintain and care for the property in the absence of an owner, all owners shall provide the Association with a key to each unit for purpose of access in the case of emergencies or necessary repairs.

Any unit owner who plans to be absent for an extended period of time should notify the board of directors or its agent concerning this intended absence. If an automobile is to remain on the premises the owner shall provide keys for such vehicle to a responsible caretaker and the name and telephone number must be provided to the Board of Directors or the management firm. Each owner who plans to be absent during the hurricane season must prepare the courtyard and exterior unit by removing potted plants, movable objects and furniture.
