As a resident or prospective resident of Tysons Station, you may have many questions about the privileges and obligations shared by you and your neighbors. The Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions is the most authoritative source of information. However, for simplicity, we’ve also attempted to answer some of the most common questions from residents in the text below.
Tysons Station Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (DCCR)
One of the key documents you receive at closing on your home is a copy of the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (DCCR), sometimes referred to as the Bylaws and Covenants. This document is a legal and binding contract that you agree to honor when you purchase a home in Tysons Station. Since it is written in legal language, it may be a bit of a challenge to read and understand, so please refer to some of the most common questions below.
What are the Homeowner Association Dues?
Homeowner association dues are mandated by the DCCR. Your dues pay for ongoing operations, maintenance (common areas, common area lighting, parking lots maintenance, trash and snow removal, landscaping and pest control, water and sewer, master hazard insurance premium, and professional property management) and for funding the long term reserve fund.
Each homeowner receives a coupon book and mailing envelops. Your account number is located on your coupon. Please make your checks payable to Tysons Station Homeowners Association. If you do not receive your coupon book, please contact Jeffrey Charles & Associates, Inc. at 703-924-5900. You may also pay through an online paying service or through the automatic debit program for your monthly dues payment. Please complete the ACH debit form. If you pay online or through the debit program, please direct your payment to Jeffery Charles Management Company, Inc.
Payments are due by the 10th of each month. A late fee is charged if your payment is not received by the due date. If you are delinquent with paying your dues, you may lose your voting rights until your dues are paid.
If you are unable to meet your dues obligation for any reason, please call Jeffery Charles to explain the situation. They may be able to make temporary payment arrangements. In no case is it acceptable to simply ignore the billing. A late fee is charged if your payment is not received by the due date.
