Policy – Property Maintenance

Holiday Park is a wonderful place to live. Our neighborhood is composed of attractive, affordable and – for the most part well maintained homes. Unfortunately, even one poorly maintained house or yard detracts from the appearance of the entire circle, and undermines the efforts of neighbors who do a good job of maintaining their property.

Holiday Park’s Architectural Control Committee (HPHA’s Circle Representatives) will notify residents whose house or yard needs attention. The reminder-notices are specific with reasonable timeframes within which to complete the maintenance. Ultimately, if the issue is not resolved, Holiday Park’s maintenance crew will undertake the work and bill the resident for the expense.

The intent of this initiative is to set the standard of what is minimally acceptable for property maintenance, and to be consistent with Holiday Park Homeowners Association’s Declaration of Covenants & Restrictions, and the City of Dallas code.

HPHA Declaration of Covenants & Restrictions

Article VII, Section 7 – Buildings, fences, mailboxes, driveways, and other structures, shall be maintained in good order and repair and free of debris including, but not limited to seeding or sodding, watering and mowing of all lawns, the pruning and cutting of all trees and shrubbery and the painting or other appropriate external care of all buildings and other improvements, all in a manner and with such frequency as is consistent with good property management.

Most homes in Holiday Park are already well above this minimum standard. Often when maintenance is not done it’s because of a personal hardship. In these instances we will work with the resident and ask if neighbors are willing to help out on a temporary basis.
