Real Estate Signage - posting rules
Posting signs at WWHOA is a privilege, not a right!
Real estate signs or any other type of signs are not allowed to be posted anywhere on the property unless in the specially designated and approved area. Especially prohibited are sign posts, lawn signs and signs displayed behind windows.
The designated and approved areas to post signs are located at the main entry gates of our buildings, to the right of the gate when facing it from outside. Posting signs on the left side of the gate (the side where the communication panel is) or on any other part of our property is prohibited and signs in violation will be removed and disposed of without prior notice.
Signs may only be posted for the purpose of announcing the sale of a unit/condo or it’s availability to rent or lease. Only the actual listing agent or lease agent may post a sign
Signs may only be posted at the entry gate of the building in which the available unit is located in. Double posting on both buildings is prohibited unless the agent actually represents two separate units with one located in each building.
Services other than real estate sale or rental/lease such as mortgage services or insurance brokerage services are strictly prohibited and language advertising such may not be displayed on the signs.
The maximum allowed sign sizes are as follows:
• For sale sign: 24 inches wide by 18 inches tall
• For rent sign: 18 inches wide by 18 inches tall
The following information must be included on all posted signs:
For Sale Signs:
• Direct line telephone number to the person in charge of the sale.
• Name of Real Estate Agency
• Name of Real Estate Agent
For Rent/Lease Signs:
• Direct line telephone number to the person in charge of the lease.
• If commercial rental agency: Name of Rental Agency
• Number of bedrooms/bathrooms
• Optional information: monthly rental cost
All signs must be attached to the gate structure in a non-permanent way. Using self-stick-tape, screws or other materials that can permanently damage the gate structure or the paint or leave residue behind, are prohibited.
All signs must be attached in an orderly fashion and may not be posted in a way that leaves a cluttered appearance. Signs must be placed to the utmost right of the gate and starting from the top down.
Flier boxes are allowed to be hung as long as they are well maintained and remain stocked with info materials related to that particular unit at all times. If a flier box is found to be empty, with trash inside or not properly maintained, it will be removed and disposed of without advance notification
Flier boxes must be installed directly to the left of the real estate sign that is advertising the property. If no space is available to the left of the sign, the box may be hung directly below the sign.
Signs may only be posted for the duration of an active listing and using our property for 'general advertising purposes' is strictly prohibited. Signs that appear to have been posted for an excessive length of time or that appear 'abandoned' or left for general advertising will be removed and disposed of without notice.
The owners of the signs or flier boxes carry full liability for their signs or flier boxes and Westchester Woods HOA is not liable and/or responsible for any damages or injuries caused by any of the signs or flier boxes. By posting a sign, the sign owner declares that they maintain proper liability insurance coverage as might be required by law. The owners of the signs or flier boxes are responsible for their proper installation and maintenance. Any signs or flier boxes that have come lose in part or entirely, that have fallen off or otherwise create an eyesore or pose a safety danger, will be removed and disposed of without notice given to the owner.
Westchester Woods HOA is not liable for damaged or lost signs or signs that were removed for posting rule violations.
Potential buyers, at this time all condos are privately owned and the Board of Directors and the Property Management Company can not directly assist potential buyers interested in purchasing property at WWHOA. Please contact a licensed real estate agent for assistance.
