To the Owners and Tenants of Alicante,

July 2018– Board of Directors Meeting 

The July 2018 Board of Directors Meeting will be held on Thursday, July 26, 2018 in the Community Room beginning at 6:00pm.

4th of July Holiday

Action Property Management. Professional Maintenance Systems (Janitorial) and Able Engineering will be closed on Wednesday, July 4, 2018 in observance of 4th of July.  If there is an afterhours maintenance emergency, such as a flood, please contact Action Property Management at 949-450-0202, afterhours personnel will assist you.  Have a safe and wonderful holiday!

Kitchen Line Cleaning

Starting Monday, July 9th– Friday, July 13th CountyWide Mechanical will be onsite to clean the vertical kitchen lines to help with the prevention of back-ups. This will require access into each unit. Please look at the posted schedule in the mailroom for more information. Contact Management with any questions.

Please help the vendor in this process by clearing out the items underneath your sink prior to arrival. Thanks for your help.

Plants on your Patios

As a reminder if you have live plants on your patio, they should all have saucers underneath to prevent water flow onto the patios below.

Pressure Reducing Valve (PRV) Replacement

Some residents may have noticed that the hot water pressure has gone down in their unit. This is due to the replacement of the PRV’s. Some residents were unable to even use their restrooms due to pipe vibration, as the Association was unable to control the pressure.  Now that this has been resolved, the pressure is back to normal. You should notice that both your hot and cold water come out at the same pressure now.

Fitness Room Refresh Project

The Common Area Enhancement Committee has performed a survey to gather information regarding Residents’ use of the Fitness Room equipment. This information will inform the refresh project. More information regarding the Fitness Room Refresh project will be shared as it becomes available.

Reduce your TV Costs

There are OMC bulletins to help you find replacement parts for your condo’s systems, including these:

·         (Bar) Bracket Cover

·         Clothes Washers

·         Garbage Disposals

·         HVAC Filters

·         Light Bulbs

·         Dryer (Lint) Filters

·         Shower/Tub Cartridges

·         Showerheads

·         Smoke Detectors

·         Toilet Flapper Valve

·         Washing Machine Hoses

Look here to download the OMC bulletins you need: http://alicantehoa.com/owner-maintenance-committee/

New Alicante Website

The Alicante website (http://alicantehoa.com ) has been revised to use new technology.  The website contains the same information, but it is easier to read (and easier to maintain). We hope you like the updated site.

Get Your AC Ready for Summer

With warmer temperatures coming soon, it may be time to get your AC ready for the season.  Ensure your HVAC filter is clean by following this bulletin.  And, if it has not been inspected/serviced in some time, it may make sense to schedule a checkup of your HVAC equipment – see the info in this bulletin.

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.

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 kthomson@actionlife.com  or mplascencia@actionlife.com.

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.

Alicante Committees

There are four committees at Alicante:

The Architectural Committee reviews Architectural Applications submitted by owners.

The Common Area Enhancement Committee works on common area décor, such as the lobby.

The Owner Maintenance Committee provides information on maintaining condo systems.

The Social Committee plans and hosts gatherings, like the Annual holiday party.

If you are a member who is interested in serving the Community but cannot dedicate the time to serve as a Board Member, joining a committee may be perfect for you!  Please contact management at kthomson@actionlife.com for more details.  Alternately, Owners may view the various committee charters on Vivo Portal.

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!

Insurance Reminder

Owners, please be reminded you are required to have individual owners insurance.  Should you have any questions as to what your policy should cover, please review the CC&R’s for owners’ responsibility.  Should you have renters or are a renter, it is good practice to obtain renters’ insurance, in the event an emergency were to occur.

Moves/Deliveries

Just a reminder that all moves and deliveries must be scheduled with Management at least a week in advance.  Please note that the rate for a 4-hour window has increased to $160. 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.

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.

Monthly Association Meetings

Just a reminder that each month’s Owners Board meetings includes an Open Session where Owners may discuss concerns with the Board, as well as listen while the Board discusses Association matters.  Owners are encouraged to attend!

Window Washing

The spring window washing is scheduled for the week of June 18th.Approximately two weeks prior to the start date, a full schedule of cleaning will be posted and emailed to the residents once the start date is closer.

Dog Barking Reminder

While we are a dog-friendly building, as a reminder, residents are entitled to quiet enjoyment of their units.  Please take the necessary measures to limit barking when in the unit and in common areas.  Barking can be considered a nuisance – which is a violation of the governing documents.  Let us work with our furry companions to make Alicante an enjoyable living space for all!
