June 2015

It has taken a while but the good weather has finally arrived and now it is sunny and hot.

The pool is now fully operational again and looks fantastic. In the end the work took 4 weeks as there were a few unforeseen problems, but the complex was very quiet in June which was normal for Tenerife as a whole and the result was worth waiting for. I would like to thank the committee of Dinastia for allowing the owners and residents the use of their pool while ours was out of action.

Some car parking spaces have been cleared of rubbish but not all, the only things permitted are vehicles (including bicycles) and anything that is being stored must be in proper storage cupboards/boxes designed for that purpose, and they must not be so large that any vehicle in that space protrudes past the pillars, by doing this you will avoid the necessity of court action.

We are now ready for the busy summer months of July and August. I would like to remind everybody that we are a residential complex and we do have rules, primarily for safety but also for the comfort and respect of the residents. So no noise at night, no  football on the complex, no towels over balcony walls.  Inflatables are not allowed anywhere in the pool area armbands and small rings used as swimming aids are allowed. All children under 12 years of age must have an adult in the pool area with them even if they can swim it is Spanish Law.

If these simple commonsense rules are kept then everyone will have a good summer and we will look forward to seeing you all. Paul

MAY 2015

May has been very hot and we also experienced  a few very thick calimas.

Once again the A.G.M was well attended and we were looked after very well by Don Quijote Restaurant who provided a range of tapas at the end of the meeting.

The members of the committee are the same as last year with the welcome addition of Steve B504 and Rayco C104.

The funding for the tileing of the pool etc was approved and work started on the 1st June as agreed. The pool will be closed for approximately 3 weeks. We have arranged that owners can use Dinastia pool during this time and thank Linda and her committee for allowing this. (Please use the Goodfellas entrance)

We are looking at ways to cut costs as regards lighting on the corridors ie sensors and /or on demand and will comment further at a later date when we have more information.

It was agreed at the A:G:M that we could take to court people who continually use their garage spaces as rubbish tips. We are writing to owners to inform them that if within a certain time they do not clear the rubbish out we will take them to court. Basically the bays are for vehicles, articles stored in fireproof cupboards will be allowed as long as the vehicle can remain inside the white lines and does not protrude at the front.

Fibre optics are now being installed on the complex and should be finished by the end of the month, this should allow for much faster internet access

Once again I thank you all for your support.

hopefully after the agm the commitee will be as it is at the moment and will be business as usual, allowing us to continue improoving The Heights.

I wish to thank you for your continued support for your commitee over the years.

March was quiet on the complex and the weather was changeable but getting hotter towards the end of the month.

As you know the A.G.M is on the 15th May and as soon as we have the accounts for the year end 31/03/2015 the notices will go out.

If you were a debtor on 31st March it will be reflected in the notification of the A.G.M however it is not too late to avoid court action, if the debt is cleared before the meeting you will then not appear on the debtors list.

Apartments in debt will be posted on the noticeboards.

I will be standing again for another year as president with the current committee.

It is our plan to freeze the  community fees for yet another year.

Both pools are now in need of refurbishing and so we would like to tile them both and enhance the pool area, by tiling the pools we  will cut down on the need for re-painting so often which will make maintenance more cost effective in the long run.We would like to do this work at the beginning of June as the complex is normally fairly quiet then and we hope to have the agreement of a neighbouring complex for owners to be able to use their pool while the work is being carried out.

We are also looking at the lighting on the whole complex with a view to installing sensors and switches to work on demand which will save the community money in the future on electricity bills.

All of these improvements will be carried out within the budget.

In an effort to cut back on costs we are looking at sending future correspondence via email, if you are agreeable to this please send an email with your name and apartment number to etelina@universalproperties.es reference The Heights and you will receive the minutes from the A.G.M by email.

The new fencing has been a big success with lots of owners saying its a very good improvement on the whole look of the complex.

If you will not be attending the A.G.M please remember to RETURN YOUR PROXY either to myself or Universal Properties.

I would like to say a big thank you to all of you who have supported both myself and the committee for the last few years and to assure you that we will continue to work hard for the good of the community.

February was very quiet and unusually cold for Tenerife, we were still wearing jeans and jumpers for most of the month, however the weather seems to have returned to normal now and we are again seeing sun beds around the pool area.

The fence,  at last we have most of the new fences erected and painted, the response from all the owners who have spoken to me has been very good and people are saying it makes The Heights look much better.

We must ask all owners of  trasteros on the third floor of each block, to make sure that the doors look in good condition and to paint them if  required it is the owners responsibility to paint these doors and we will make sure that the white community doors on these floors are also painted.

It will soon be AGM time again, and next month I will set out our plans for more improvements on The Heights. Financially  this year has been good and we have managed to build up our bank account,  again allowing us to carry on making The Heights  a great complex.

We are carrying out some maintenance works at the moment, the work on the solarium is to repair  the problem of water leaks in the garage which is also interfering with the electrics,  but we will try to  keep any disruption down to a minimum.

Dog owners please make sure if your dog does have an accident on the complex that you are responsible and clean up after them, we have had a few occasions this month where it has been left to the cleaners to clear up, if we are informed who the culprits are we will take action against them.

After many years of waiting The Heights is finally going to be wired for fibre optics, this should happen in the next few months, although it is still not clear when the system will be fully operational! This will make access to the internet easier and faster for all of us and maybe cheaper.

Hopefully we  will see you all soon.
