Homeowner’s Agreement with MVF
I, the property owner, understand that an approval by the ARB is only for what has been requested on this application.* I understand that if any additional changes are to be made after the ARB has approved a plan, I must submit the new changes to the ARB for additional review prior to work being started (no additional fee required). I understand that all approved changes must be completed within three (3) months of the ARB’s letter of approval, unless a specific exception is received from the ARB. I also understand that the language provided by the applicant on the application supersedes that on an attached contract.
*Approvals for improvement requests in Thomas Choice and/or Horizon Run condominiums will be given by the respective association boards of directors, not the ARB. MVF staff will review the application, make a recommendation and forward to the association boards for final approval.
I understand that all ARB approvals are for conformity with existing architectural and aesthetic conditions within the community only. I, as the property owner, have the sole responsibility for acquiring mandated permits, hiring engineering professionals, managing water flow, and any other areas requiring professional or technical advice or approval required by Montgomery County or Maryland State laws and in accordance with the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions as referred to in the deed to my property (Note: The county requires a MVF approval letter before a county permit will be issued to the homeowner.)
I, as the property owner, am responsible for damages to adjoining properties and all other persons resulting from the improvements indicated and upon the ARB’s approval of the request. Any damages or cost for repair of greenspace or community property as a result of any ARB approval is my sole responsibility as the property owner.
Permission is hereby granted for ARB members and MVF staff to enter on my property to make reasonable inspection of the modifications as proposed or completed as stated herein.
