As Hunters Ridge residents approach winter the HOA would like to remind everyone that all of the streets in our community are state roads and, as such, maintained by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT). This includes snow plowing. The HOA does not provide this service. If a resident has questions or concerns regarding snow removal they should contact VDOT directly at 800-367-7623.
Residents of Hunters Ridge are reminded that the law forbids more than one vehicle from being in the crossover at the center medium at the intersection of Coloriver Road and the Prince William Parkway. Drivers who insist on joining another vehicle in the crossover are endangering themselves and others by this reckless practice. In the last year a serious accident, with injuries, occurred at this intersection due to this practice. Please, wait for the other vehicle to make their turn onto the Parkway before pulling into the crossover. It could save you a ticket, if not more.
Spring and early summer are the seasons of job transfers and home selling, and our Hunters Ridge community is now sprinkled with FOR SALE signs. More than half the homes put up for sale found prospective buyers within a week, a testimony to the attractiveness and desirability of Hunters Ridge home ownership. As new buyers go through their qualification process to complete their purchase, the Hunters Ridge HOA performs their legally required service producing an HOA Disclosure Packet (DP) to be delivered to the new homeowner prior to settlement.
The lawmaker’s intent in creating the DP was to protect purchasers from the unknown, hence the title “Disclosure Packet”. The DP contains the HOA’s Covenants and bylaws, rules and regulations, and the architectural guidelines and restrictions adopted by the association. We inspect the property to verify the property is not in violation of the HOA’s architectural guidelines, and also provide the status of the sellers outstanding financial obligations to the HOA, including any liens posted for debts to the HOA. We regard the disclosure information we provide to be a service to the buyer, advising them of existing issues related to the property that they should be aware of.
To request a DP to support the sale of your property go to the Hunters Ridge web site (www.huntersridgeva.net) to download our DP Request Form, fill out the form, and send it to the HOA with the requisite $100 fee. By law the HOA has 14 days to produce the DP once payment is received, so work with your realtor to make sure this legally required step is initiated in a timely way.
