When you check this, it means that the item or area is dirty, cluttered, or overgrown such that all that needs to be done is cleaning the item or area.

Good Condition

In general, good condition means that the item or area looks good.  There is no broken or cracked glass; no chipping or peeling paint; no visible rotting or damaged wood or other material; no broken or missing parts or materials; and, if applicable, the item or area is consistent with an established Community Standard.


The governing documents require homeowners to get approval for any changes to the exterior of their homes.  Over the years, the ACC has approved changes and then established a Community Standard for an item so that homeowners would not have to continue to ask for permission for making that same change. For example, storm doors.  These Community Standards establish the specifications for a particular area or item.  Homeowners wishing to do something else must obtain prior approval from the ACC.  After approval by the Board, these Community Standards are incorporated into the Community Handbook.

Verify Change

When you check this, it means that the item or area is different from the standard, or otherwise appears to be a change to the exterior of the home.  This serves to remind the Management Company to check the ACC files to verify that the homeowner obtained the required prior ACC approval.
