Question: What You Should Know Before You Buy At Playa Almirante?

Buying a Condo is like buying shares in a nonprofit Real Estate holding corporation. You don't just buy a home, you enter into a partnership. Condo's are common-interest developments. You own your unit, or at least everything on your side of the walls. But you also own a share in common areas and you're responsible for their upkeep.

Guided by a board of directors, the Association manages dues and other money collected to fund the annual budget. Monies are dispersed for repairs and upkeep of common areas, buildings, other structures, landscaping, lighting, walks, paving, pools and the like, and other operating expenses.

If you're considering buying a property at Playa Almirante, make sure you are familiar with our rules and regulations before you make your offer. Read them carefully to see if you will be comfortable complying with those rules.

Note: Be aware that there is a $500.00 Construction Fee paid at closing to the Association when you buy a Condo at Playa Almirante.

Question: Can I use Playa Almirante's facilities to celebrate a private party?
Yes. You can request the use of a particular area to celebrate a private party, however only the gazebo could be reserved exclusively. The administrator keeps a calendar of activities to avoid more than one activity on the same area on the same day. The resident celebrating the activity will be solely responsible for their guess and their behavior.
Question: I would like to make a Pool Party. Are there any special rules I should know?
Yes. You need to request the use of the pool to celebrate any private party. Be aware that the condominium insurance does not cover private activities hosted by an individual resident. We strongly recommend that you keep your party to one pool so other residents can enjoy the use of the pool as usual. We also recommend that you hire life guards if you are going to have kids under 16. No food or beverage will be allowed inside the pool and under no circumstance glass bottle should be introduce pass the gates of the pool area. Remember that the resident celebrating the activity will be solely responsible for their guess and their behavior; please brief them on Playa Almirante's Rules.
Question: What is our dues money used for?
The association is responsible for maintaining all common areas owned by the association. Our biggest expenditures include (1) Wastewater Treatment Plant, (2) Paying for maintenance of common areas, (3) on-site employees and contracting with an Administrator to collect dues, submit taxes, handle complaints, coordinate liens, etc.
Question: Do my condo maintenance fees pay for homeowner's insurance on my unit?
No. The association's policy insures the exterior and structural portions of the building only, not the interior of your unit or your contents. This policy also covers the shared areas of the development including walkways, grounds, elevators, lobby, amenities such as pool, and parking areas - known as the "common elements" of your building. The coverage includes both fire coverage (known as hazard insurance) and liability insurance.
Question: If I have a leak in a water pipe and my unit is flooded, will the building insurance pay for my losses?
That depends on whether the pipe that caused the leak is a "common element" owned by the association, or a part of your unit alone. This is one of the most common problems that make condo occupants glad that they have unit insurance! If the pipe is within your unit, you will need to pay for the repairs out of pocket unless you have condo insurance. If the water is coming from another unit above or next to you, another owner may be responsible who may or may not have insurance coverage. And if your water seeps into another adjacent home, you may be held responsible for your neighbor's damage, too!
Question: What's involved in remodeling or making major modifications to my unit?

Formal approval of the work, a $30,000 work insurance cover and a description of how the work will be performed is generally required. Scheduling, particularly work hours, and coordination with property staff to provide access to you contractors and delivery of materials will likely be required.

Talk with the Administrator or any board member to learn the rules and abide by them. Communicate frequently and in writing, follow procedures, include a requirement to follow all building rules and regulations in contracts with your contractors, and be considerate of your neighbors and community during the process.
