(Units 1, 3, 6 & 8) Ensuing Phases 2 through 16 were completed between 1997 and 2006 and included four floor designs.

Member Guidelines

When you purchased or became an occupant of The Fairways, you became part of a democracy of homeowners that governs your building.

The guidelines are very detailed consisting of hundreds of pages in the declarations, bylaws, and other rules and are recorded with the property deed. The rules are embodied in the declarations, bylaws, and other rules adopted by The Fairways. Most homeowners have never read the declarations, bylaws, and other rules for The Fairways. Most buyers will purchase their piece of The Fairways without reading or understanding the declarations, bylaws, and other rules about how the condominium will be operated, and how things must be done. Whether or not you read and understood these governing documents, you are still bound by them.

Whether or not the rules are fair is generally not considered, even by the courts, because they are the rules that you agreed to live by when you purchased your home at The Fairways. If you are unhappy with the rules, you may be able to change some of them with a vote of the homeowners. 

Please note that the declarations, bylaws, and other rules for The Fairways apply to homeowners, occupants and guests. 

Should you have an issue or even a question about the rules, contact The Fairways Board of Directors.

Compliance with the Rules

It is impossible for The Fairways to get compliance from every occupant for every rule all of the time. 

Many people, simply, are not aware of the rules. Others think they are complying when they are not.

Should you have an issue or even a question about the rules, contact The Fairways Board of Directors.
