FAQ
 

  • chevron_rightHow do I contact the HOA Board?
    By going to the Contact Us page and selecting HOA Board in the dropdown box, or, you can email the Master Association Board at: 
    BODWaterstone@gmail.com  or the Townhome Association Board at TownhouseBOD@gmail.com
  • chevron_rightWhat is the due date for HOA dues?
    Townhome HOA dues are payable on the 1st day of each month. Likewise for our single family homeowners, they are due on the first day of every quarterly month – January, April, July and October.
     
    The Board and management strongly encourage any owner who is experiencing financial hardship to contact management immediately when the account becomes delinquent so as to set up a payment plan in order to prevent further financial hardships that will arise as a result of collection efforts and related charges. 
     
    Questions can be directed to NewTown HOA Management by email at Info@NewTownHOA.com or by phone at (803) 366-5262
     
  • chevron_rightWhat are the safety rules at the park?
    Children under the age of 11 should be accompanied by an adult at all times while at the park. Equally, if you have children or teenagers please remind them that the park is under 24/7 video surveillance and unauthorized access is considered trespassing. 
  • chevron_rightWho is responsible for picking up litter at the park, pool parking lot, and common areas?
    The landscaping company picks up litter once a week while they are servicing our community.
  • chevron_rightWho do I contact if I observe criminal activity in the neighborhood?
    Contact the York County Sheriff's office if you observe property damage, loud and unruly behavior, or are involved with physical assaults. These are not acceptable by any means and  are crimes that local law enforcement are better suited to address; these go beyond the reach of the HOA. The HOA can revoke amenity access if we can confirm/verify the identity of the residents through police reports or other means.
  • chevron_rightWhere can I find a copy of the CCRs?
    On the documents page.  You must be registered on the HOA website to access this page.
  • chevron_rightMy street lamp is burned out. How do I get it replaced?
    There is a yellow sticker on the pole with the pole number and the phone number of York Electric to call.
  • chevron_rightWhere is parking allowed in the neighborhood?
    Townhome Section
     
    The Townhouse Board of Directors has recently received feedback from townhome owners that some residents are abusing the use of the visitor parking spots in the Townhomes. As a reminder, we do have published parking rules which outline timelines in which vehicles can be parked in spots, etc. We kindly ask that residents refrain from storing vehicles in the additional visitor parking spaces; any vehicle that is reported to be parked longer than 48 hours in one of the additional visitor parking spaces will be towed.
     
    Equally, vehicles with expired tags, flat tires, or not drivable (on blocks/jacks) will be immediately towed from visitor parking spaces.
     
    Thank you for your understanding and support. If you have any questions, concerns or specific short-term situations that require additional parking please contact the board at TownhouseBOD@gmail.com.
     
     
    Single-Family Section
     
    The streets within the single-family section of our community are publicly owned roads.  This means that neither the Waterstone Homeowners Association (Master Association) nor the property management company can restrict on-street parking.  However, under certain circumstances, Waterstone residents can report illegally parked vehicles to the York County Sheriff non-emergency number by calling 803-628-3056 and requesting the vehicle be towed if parked in any of the following manners:
     
    ·        On a sidewalk unless such parking is unavoidable
    ·        That blocks the street (makes it impassable)
    ·        In front of a public or private driveway or so near thereto as to interfere with the unobstructed use of such driveway
    ·        Within an intersection
    ·        Within 15 feet of a fire hydrant
    ·        On a crosswalk
    ·        Within 20 feet of a crosswalk at an intersection
    ·        Within 30 feet upon the approach to a stop sign.

    Per Section 6.8 of the Single Family and Townhome CCR's, it states:

  • chevron_rightI live in a single family home, and I want to widen/extend my driveway. Who do I need to get approval from to have this done?
    All of the single family homes in Waterstone are on a county right of way. This means the first 15 feet (minimum) from the edge of the asphalt is a county right of way.  If anyone wants a driveway widening/extension, homeowners must file for encroachment permits with York county. York county will have to approve the request before the Master Association Architectural Review Board can approve it.
     
    Please contact York County Public Works Division (Road Maintenance) with any questions.
