Attention
Homeowners and
Poinciana Residents
We would like to announce that a policy was approved at our Board of
Directors meeting, which was held on June 10, 2014 at the Poinciana
Community Center located at 395 Marigold Avenue, Poinciana Florida
34759. The policy in place is to be read as follows:
Covenant Enforcement Policy
Covenant enforcement is critical to the community and the values of the
property in the community. When the Association of Poinciana Villages is
enforcing its Declaration and its Design Control Board Criteria, it must do
so in a uniform manner across all violations and handle each violation in
a similar manner to resolve the same. It is also critical that violations are
addressed as soon as possible and are not permitted to remain in any length
of period of time.
1) APV, through its team, will patrol the community for violations and
document, with pictures, any violations of the Declaration and Criteria.
2) When APV finds a violation, APV should send a “friendly reminder” to
the homeowner advising the homeowner of the violation and the homeowner’s
obligation to correct the violation. Homeowners whose violations can
reasonably be remedied (i) immediately will be given, at least five (5) days
to comply; (ii) without significant expense, but may require professional
intervention will be given fifteen (15) days; and (iii) with professional
intervention will be given thirty (30) days, to correct the violations. By way of
example, and not limitation, APV has compiled the following:

3) If the homeowner does not cure the violation in the timeframe prescribed
in the “Friendly Reminder”, APV will send a “Second Notice” advising the
homeowner of his or her obligation to correct the violation and that APV
intends to pursue this matter further if the violation is not corrected within
fifteen (15) days.
4) If the homeowner does not cure the violation in the timeframe prescribed
in the “Second Notice’, APV will forward a “Final Notice and Intent To Take
Legal Action” by certified mail with return receipt requested and by U.S. mail
advising the homeowner of his or her obligation to correct the violation and
that APV will forward the matter to its legal counsel for further action and that
homeowner may become liable for attorneys’ fees and costs.
5) If the homeowner does not cure the violation after the “Final Notice and
Intent To Take Legal Action”, APV will turn the file over to its legal counsel for
further legal action.
6) APV’s legal counsel will begin by sending a written demand to the
homeowner for compliance.
7) If the Homeowner does not comply as directed in APV’s legal counsel in
its demand letter, APV’s legal counsel will mail the statutorily prescribed pre-
suit mediation demand to the homeowner.
8) If the homeowner does not bring the property into compliance, APV
may direct APV’s legal counsel to proceed with the litigation process to compel
the homeowner’s compliance with the Declaration and Criteria.
9) The aforementioned covenant enforcement policy and timeframes are
intended to be a guideline and all actions are subject to administrative and
processing delays.
10) Any deviation from this policy shall not constitute a waiver of any rights
or remedies of the APV in enforcing its Declaration and Criteria.
11) APV will attempt to recover all attorney fees and costs incurred in its
efforts to enforce the Declaration and Criteria from the homeowner violating
the Declaration and Criteria.
