QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Hidden Village Condo Lake Mary Florida 32746
Question: Chris Dimillo: Is the construction dumpster in the back of the community permanent or temporary? If temporary when will it be removed?
Answer: In general, this is explained on the left, and in The Village View News-letter, under "Facilities and Services". firstname.lastname@example.org said: "The dumpster is not under a contract; therefore, it is not permanent but is month to month. The last time it was removed was when unauthorized use by outside contractors or non-resident persons were using it more than the association was using it." The construction of a dumpster enclosure is in development.

Question: 9/2/2013 "There is a dog that is not authorized to stay in the apartment at 958 Newcastle Circle Apt. 100. The dog is a long-haired dachshund, and the owner has explicitly stated that the dog is not on the lease agreement nor is it up-to-date on all required shots. The dog barks throughout the entire day, and is frequently walked outside of the assigned dog-walking areas and let out without a leash.
There is also a woman (mid 40's) and her baby that have been living in that apartment for nearly a year. The mother routinely chain-smokes in the stairwell, and is not on the lease agreement. She receives mail at this address, and has moved in permanently.
Answer: Paula Butler: "The association has no control over smoking, occupancy of a unit or shot records for a dog. I will address the dog roaming freely and the pet walking area."

Subject: Purchasing Condo
Message: "Hi Andrew, my wife and I are looking at purchasing a unit in Hidden Village and really appreciate the info found on your site. I left a message for the Sentry Mgmt rep but he did not return my call. Can you give me any type of insight on the health of your HOA, if they are keeping up with the facility, maintenance/updates, etc and if the property is safe with pretty good residents/tenants? Any info would be appreciated. We currently live here in the Lake Mary area. Thanks, Chris
Answer: Thank you for your letter. I am honored to have caught your attention to one of my web pages about Hidden Village, Lake Mary. I am an owner of a two-bedroom, two full bathroom unit. You asked " if they are keeping up with the facility, maintenance/updates, etc and if the property is safe with pretty good residents/tenants?". That question is tailored to a resounding reply of yes! Since my purchase in May 2005, the maintenance of this community has been constant, consistent, extensive, and competent. The BOD do a good job making sure every issue is remedied immediately. All of the roadways here have been fully resurfaced and painted for the second time since I have been here. All of the dumpster enclosures were just replaced with brand new attractive weather resistant ones. The windows, roofs, siding, Pool area, and painting of buildings have all been replaced or re-done. Much of this has been documented on this web page. All of my neighbors here are wonderful concerned and helpful people. It is extremely safe.
