Construction: Fencing, Carports, Sheds & Additions
Like it or not, the human brain prefers order, consistency and continuity. Letting tenant's personal standards about what and where to build fencing, additions, carports and sheds will result in a messy, patchwork of odd shapes, sizes and colors all over the park. In addition, this approach will cause endless neighborly disputes about lot lines, obstructed views, damaged landscaping, etc... Unchecked, "build whatever" will reduce tenant satisfaction, make the park less attractive and reduce home values.
Success here means the tenant contacts the manager prior to starting construction to request approval of their project. The design of the project in terms of it's size, materials and construction quality will be consistent with the park's standards, add to the curb appeal of the home and improve the overall appearance of the park. The entire process from initial contact by the tenant about the project to final moves along very quickly and takes about a week to complete.
The manager will periodically include a note on the rent statement and another in the newsletters about the need to obtain approval prior to building.
The manager will keep a watchful eye on anything that looks like exterior construction at the park and engage the tenant and explain the need for prior approval.
The manager willl follow our Construction Approval Process and obtain the approval of the offsite manager prior to approving any construction projects in the park.
