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.
