Alicante Insurance 

Alicante’s Insurance renewed on October 1st. Many of your own providers ask for a copy of the certificate of insurance. A copy of the new certificate can be found on the homeowner portal or on the Alicante website at the following link.

Avoid Costly Sink Backups

The disposal may grind it, but Alicante’s pipes cannot handle grease, scraps, cornhusks, egg shells, peels (apples, carrots, etc.), oils/butters, excessive soap, coffee grounds, or rice. Moreover, since condos are stacked, a drain issue in one condo likely impacts those above/below. Please remember – and ask cleaning staff to remember – to avoid the items listed to help keep Alicante’s drains flowing.

Own an HE Washing Machine?

If you own a high-efficiency (HE) washing machine and use non HE laundry detergent it can create a sudsing problem that can cause an overflow of detergent foam to your unit and the units below.

Water Cost Savings

Did you know that one of the single largest line items in Alicante’s budget goes to our water usage. While San Diego is currently not in a drought, this link provides helpful tips on how you can help conserve water and save money in the process.

Pest Control

Lloyd’s Pest Control offers homeowners a discounted rate of $25 for service to the interior of the units. If interested, please contact them at 1-800-223-2847. 

Pet Disturbances

While Alicante is a dog friendly building, please manage your pets so that they do not diminish others’ enjoyment of Alicante. This includes cleaning up pet accidents and taking the necessary measures to limit barking. Per the Association’s governing documents, pet-related violations can lead to fines. Please show respect to your neighbors and help keep Alicante a pet-friendly building.

Pet Limit

As a reminder, no unit may keep more than an aggregate of two (2) dogs and/or cats.

Holding Doors Open

Please refrain from holding or propping Common Area doors and gates open for longer than 30 seconds as the Building Engineer and Management receive notifications for each occurrence.

Moves/Deliveries Price Increase

Please note that the rate for a 4-hour window has increased as of September 1st from $160 to $200.

All moves and deliveries must be scheduled with Management at least a week in advance. A general rule of thumb is if it takes more than one person to move it, then a move must be scheduled.  The reason is simply to protect the building from sustaining damage during a move.  Please be advised that if you are found to have had an unscheduled move, you will be subject to hearing and fine.  If you are unsure of the scope of your move or would like to schedule a move, please contact the General Manager. 

Rental Leases

Per the Association’s Rules and Regulations, if you are renting your unit, please remember to send Management a copy of your lease. This information is necessary for many reasons, mainly for emergency purposes.  In the event of an evacuation, the authorities require us to have an updated list of who is in the building.  By not providing your lease and tenant’s information, we will not know who to look for if there was an evacuation situation.  This information is kept confidential. Please remember to submit this information every time you have a new tenant!  You can submit to mplascencia@actionlife.com or kneal@actionlife.com

Recycling

While the City of San Diego does permit Styrofoam packaging and containers to be recycled, our vendor Waste Management does not. Please continue to discard Styrofoam and plastic bags in the trash.

Architectural Applications

If you are thinking about making a change in your unit that would require architectural committee review and approval, please plan well in advance. Per the Architectural Guidelines, the Committee is allotted 30-45 days for review.  It is also recommended to wait before setting a schedule with your contractor until an approval has been awarded.

Parking in Association Spaces

Management would like to remind residents that parking in spaces other than what is deeded to the resident or rented may result in a tow. Please do not park in any space without permission of the Owner or deeded to the property. If your vehicle is towed it will be at the expense of the Owner.

Maintenance Responsibilities

In case you are ever curious as to who is responsible for what, or find yourself in a situation where you don’t know if you should call Management or your own vendor, please see the Maintenance Matrix posted in the mailroom glass case.  We pulled this information from the Alicante CC&Rs.

Contact Information

In the event you change your email address or phone number, please remember to advise management.  This allows us to continue to communicate important reminders to you!
