JULY 2015

Last Updated on Monday, 10 August 2015 07:52 Written by Paul Tassell Monday, 10 August 2015 07:52

July gave us nice warm weather getting hotter towards the end.

The complex is now much busier, with the arrival of a lot of the owners for their usual summer holidays.

Keys for the front gate and post box area: The keys for these two gates are now available, and it is the same key for both gates. The post box area will be locked from early October and from then on only accessible by key. The front entrance will be locked from early November, the gate will be locked at 23.00hrs by the security guard and re-opened at 9.00hrs. The night time closing may vary slightly, dependant as to what time the bar closes, but judging by the operating hours this month 11pm shouldn´t be a problem.

The community will issue 2 keys per apartment, further keys can be purchased @15euros each (they are security keys which cannot be copied)  Keys can be collected from me at the pool anyday between 10 and 11 am.

We will require from each owner their name, address of where they reside, email address and telephone number, and signature.

In the event of a tenant collecting a key we will require all of the above details plus the tenants name, phone number and signature, tenants will be issued with 1 key the other to be collected by the owner at their convenience. It is important that you are up to date with your community fees.

Don´t worry if you do arrive late and haven´t collected your key there will be a buzzer to use and the security guard will let you in.


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

Last Updated on Wednesday, 3 June 2015 03:50 Written by Paul Tassell Wednesday, 3 June 2015 03:50

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.

April was quiet and the weather very warm and sunny most days.

The notices went out for the agm on 15th May and we have started recieving you proxys from those who are unable to attend please remember to include youremail as explained in last months post.

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 2015

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.
