When is a Property Change Request Required?

 

When required, the following apply to every request:

  • All Rosedale CC&Rs, Manatee County and Florida State Codes must be followed.

  • Proper Permitting is required and is the homeowners responsibility. For more information see the Rosedale Master Homeowners Association Website and the Overview, Manatee County Guidelines, What Does Need a Building Permit.

  • Sunshine 811 should be contacted to identify underground utility wires and pipes whenever digging is part of a project.

  • Licensed Contractor where required. For more information see the Rosedale Master Homeowners Association Website and the Overview, Manatee County Guidelines, Handyman or Licenses Contractor.

  • Common ground cannot be used without Master HOA approval. Any and all damage to common property must be repaired.

  • If access is needed to neighbor[s] property, a written approval from the neighbor is required along with the ARC request. If a project has an impact on a neighbor’s property (i.e., zero lot lines). Both homeowners must submit a PCR/ARC Request

  • No supplies are to be stored in common areas, on the front lawn or on the street.

  • Must comply with local HOA requirements (where applicable) and have local ARC authorization to submit to the Master ARC.

  • Each type of request requires a unique submission. For instance, if you are painting and landscaping you need to submit two separate forms.

  • Submissions must be complete with all items attached (see below) or may result in delays.

  • Submissions received by noon the Friday before an ARC meeting should be reviewed at the following ARC meeting (usually every other Wednesday, see the Rosedale Master HOA site for more details). Holidays and volunteer shortages may affect this timing.
