Contractor Requirements

REMINDER:  The Unit Owner, the Unit Owner’s Contractors, Tenants, or Guests must contain all materials, tools, and work within the unit.  Unit Owners, Contractors, Electricians, Carpet Cleaners, HVAC Technicians, Plumbers etc. must be prepared with the proper equipment needed to complete all work within the unit interior, without the expectation of utilizing any common area and without the expectation of utilizing common area sources, in any way or manner.

Access Valves

Check all water accesses for leaks and proper operations on a daily basis. Routine checks will aid in discovering water leaks early which in turn will help to avoid jeopardizing your unit and equally your neighbors units.

Water Heater

Checking for leaks daily could help to eliminate damages to the unit below you as well as your own.

HVAC

Change the air filter on a monthly basis and inspect the unit on a regular basis.  Water deposits on the filter or floor may indicate a condensation back up which could eventually cause damage to your unit and your neighbors unit as well.

*Buildings # 72, 76, 80 and 84 are required to have an approved Form 2 prior to HVAC unit replacement.*

Electric

When aluminum wiring was installed, in 1968, the devices (switches, receptacles and wire nuts) were not as compatible as thought.  Incompatibility of the equipment can create loose connections causing wires to heat and become damaged at the connections. Examples of electrical device issues may include flickering lights, receptacle outages, partial or full electrical outages within the unit, or breakers kicking off.  If any of the previous examples should occur in your unit a licensed/state certified electrician should be retained to make the necessary electrical repairs.

If you have not updated your devices Council suggests that you do so.  If you have updated the devices and experience electrical issues it may be due to overloading of electrical usage which can cause strain on the electrical wiring at the main breaker or the main breaker itself.

Again, a licensed/state certified electrician should be retained to complete all repairs, replacements, and updates and a Certificate of Insurance from the Electrician’s Insurance Company must be faxed to the Villa Belmont Office, at the fax number above, with the following wording “Coverage includes the Interest of Villa Belmont Condominiums as an Additional Insured with respects to the General Liability” added under the heading
