SEPTEMBER UPDATE

Last Updated on Tuesday, 14 October 2014 06:04 Written by Paul Tassell Tuesday, 14 October 2014 06:04

The Weather is still very good with temperatures holding up well, we are getting a little more cloud now but that is quite welcome sometimes.

Gardens

The work has been carried out on gardens at the far end of A and B blocks and on the solarium,

they are all looking good and should be easy for Jose to maintain, we also will be getting Jose to carry out similar works on other gardens.

It is nice to see a lot of owners turning up this month and stay for the winter period and we have received a lot of comments from them about the look of the complex.

DOGS

Yet again I must remind a lot of Tenants / owners that the rules of the complex are that Dogs MUST be kept on a lead at all times , also if you are Renting your apartment PLEASE maintain a no dogs rule as there are a few irresponsible owners spoiling it for others at the moment.

FENCING

This work will start as soon as we get the licence from the town hall this has involved a lot of paperwork and time but should be resolved shortly.

I apologise for the late posting but I have had a very busy month.

August 2014

Last Updated on Thursday, 11 September 2014 06:28 Written by Paul Tassell Thursday, 11 September 2014 06:28

That’s another August over!

It has been very hot with cloudless skies and very little breeze.

Many owners were here to enjoy the summer with their families.
It has been a lot calmer than in previous years, although I must remind
owners that they are responsible for any tenants they put into their apartments
and they must comply with the complex rules.
We had one incident where a short term tenant was asked to remove 4 towels from
over the balcony wall he took offence at being asked and decided he wanted to
fight everybody but he eventually calmed down.
This behaviour will not be accepted and the owner should make sure
that these people do not return to The Heights.
With problem tenants like this it will draw attention to certain apartments
and if it carries on we would ask the authorities to intervene.

Gardeners will be on site early September to carry out work on the Solarium
and the gardens on A and B at the far end, we will asses the work and possibly
have more done in the new year.

The fence work is behind because we are waiting for the licence to carry out the
work and will be started as soon as we can.

Jose Matilda and Yanira are on their summer break and will return mid September,
we have temporary cleaners and they are doing a good job and again this year Eric
has volunteered to carry out some of Jose´s duties and he has also done a very good job.
See you all soon

JULY 2014

Last Updated on Saturday, 9 August 2014 05:48 Written by Paul Tassell Saturday, 9 August 2014 05:48

July has been a hot month but unusually there has been a lot of cloud about which the sun has managed to burn off later in the day.

There have been more people about on the complex as most schools in Europe are now well into summer holidays.
The complex is quite calm at the moment and the night guard has also had fewer problems for the time of year, lets hope the trend continues.

The order for the new fencing around the front of the complex has been placed, it will be in runs of approximately 2 metres, with vertical rungs pointing through an arched top, these will be stronger and more cosmetically pleasing. It will be painted in the dark red of the complex.
Work will start as soon as we receive the required licence, probably in mid September. This will tie in with the front gates being locked at night, probably in October.
Each owner will receive 2 security keys, but I will give more information about this nearer to the time.

Look forward to seeing you all in the near future

JUNE 2014

Last Updated on Saturday, 12 July 2014 04:08 Written by Paul Tassell Saturday, 12 July 2014 04:08

June was fairly quiet on The Heights. The weather has been very good and looks set to stay.
The complex is busier now as the Spanish and Scottish schools have broken up
for the long holidays and we have a lot of families on their summer break.

If you are visiting with your family this summer please remember to respect
some basic rules of the complex as it is a residential complex and a lot of
owners have to go to work early in the morning.

The main problems each year are:
Children running about on the solarium after 9pm unsupervised and making a noise, and mess.
Please do not allow your children to drop litter and leave cans on the walls
of the complex.
Inflatables are not allowed in the pool area due to health and safety regulations under our pool
licence only small swimming aids for non swimmers are permitted. If you arrive with anything
else you will be asked to remove it from the pool area.

On previous occasions people have been propping open the gates around the pool
with beer mats, this is very dangerous as small children can access the pool
area unseen and possibly drown.
Children under 12 years old must be accompanied by an Adult at all times in the pool area.

Please respect these simple regulations and everybody will have a good time at
The Heights this summer.

We again ask owners if you are letting your apartment on a long term contract
please put in a no pets clause, this month we have had a few apartments change
hands and the new tenants have dogs.

We have been asked to check the law on dogs. All dogs should have insurance, be registered,
chipped and have the relevant vet reports.
Large dogs must be muzzled on and off the complex in public areas.
and ALL dogs must be on a lead at all times on the complex including the garage area.

Toni and Jo are now settling into the pool bar and getting ready for the summer rush and
are getting to know many owners we wish them luck.

UPDATE FOR MAY

Last Updated on Monday, 2 June 2014 07:51 Written by Paul Tassell Monday, 2 June 2014 07:51

After a busy month with community work (AGM ETC) it has now settled down to a quiet time at The Heights.

The weather is good again with some quite impressive temperatures some days, they still catch people out
and you see them walking about sunburnt, don’t forget even if there is some cloud about you will still get burnt.

The AGM went well and the committee stands the same as last year. We discussed replacing the fences at the front
of the complex and we have the go ahead to do it but we are still taking more estimates before we decide who will
carry out the work.
Some tiling work is being carried out at the moment on block B level 5 to stop further water leaks
into level 4, also on B1 on the bend of the tarmac road is being repaired.
At the main entrance we are relaying the pedestrian entrance to allow better wheelchair and pram access, the entrance will still be steep but at least they will not have to negotiate a step.

As previously agreed any debtor to the community owing more than 500 euros will be taken to court to recover the debt,
if you owe this amount or more you have been warned.

We have been asked by some Belgium owners if we could get any Flemish stations on our TV system, we are looking into
this now and should have some news soon.

The Pool Bar. Its the end of an era as Mick and Pat retire, they will be missed by many and I want to wish
them all the best in their retirement.
Their successors are Toni and Jo who take over today and I wish them the best of luck and hope they enjoy our complex and hope we can work together as we did with Mick and Pat.

I look forward to seeing you all in the next few months.

Toni and Jo with Mick and Pat

Toni and Jo with
Mick and Pat
