Big Bay Residential Estate HOA

Building Information

Obligation to Build

In order to reduce inconvenience to residents in the Estate, owners are required to complete all building/renovation/alteration works within 12 calendar months of commencement and/or delivery of materials to site. A penalty levy of four times the monthly homeowner levy is charged where this time period is exceeded.

Contractor’s Agreement

The purpose of this agreement is to ensure integration between residential living and control over building activities within the Estate with minimal impact to the environment and residents. The agreement will be enforced by the Estate Manager and allows fines to be imposed on the contractor where transgressions occur.

The contractor’s agreement and other mandatory documentation must be signed and submitted to the Estate Manager prior to the commencement of any building operations. Contractors are required to erect dark green shade cloth fencing/netting or a boundary wall to screen the site during the entire building process.
