SCAMS – FRAUD – NEW CHIP CARDS & WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

With so many credit card scams, merchants and credit card companies are looking for ways to make credit card transactions more secure. So are consumers. One powerful solution is probably in your wallet, in the form of a thumb-size metallic square on your credit cards. The square is a computer chip, which turns your credit card into a chip card and makes it impossible for hackers to clone credit cards.

Unlike the magnetic stripe on traditional credit cards, chip cards don’t store sensitive information. Instead, each time the card is used, a unique transaction code is generated. If hackers intercept that transaction, they will not be able to use the code again.

As advised by the Denver and Greenwood Village Police Departments – DO NOT USE YOUR DEBIT CARD – that is your money you are risking. It can take up to a month to have funds returned to your account.

It’s hard to resist feeding the wildlife but please DON’T, for their health and your safety

  • The native animals who live here, including rabbits, squirrels, raccoons, and other wildlife, need nature’s diet to be healthy.
  • Human food and pet food are “junk food” for wildlife. well-intended handouts may cause disease, injury, and even death for the animals.
  • Providing unnatural food encourages wildlife to congregate in large numbers, leading to territorial fighting, attacks by predators, and being hit by cars.

Animals you feed today may be killed as “pests” tomorrow. Don’t harm wildlife with your kindness…help them remain healthy, safe, and free.

MAINTENANCE ISSUES:

Canyon Club counts on our residents to help keep us informed of issues in our community.

You are our eyes and ears. If you have concerns, questions or suggestions for maintenance please communicate them through the HOA office by sending an email to canyonclubcondos@gmail.com. Maintenance emergencies must be called into the maintenance emergency line at 720-385-8158.

We are continuing to have drain backup issues throughout the property. What you can do to help keep this from happening:

Be aware:  Watch what you are putting down the drains, grease, animal proteins, fibrous vegetables should never go through your garbage disposal. In fact, a garbage disposal is only intended for bits left on plates after scraping them off in the trash can.

Pay attention: The only product that can safely be flushed down the toilets is toilet paper.  Cotton products, “flushable” wipes, and even Kleenex should not be flushed, they are not designed to dissolve in water like toilet paper.

Be proactive: Once per month, pour one ounce of Drain Defense by ZEP down each drain and sit for the day. Drain Defense is not a clog remover, it is an enzyme that will eat away at all the grease and bathroom tissue build up on the pipe walls. It is safe for all pipes, new and old, and costs about $10 at Home Depot for a 64-ounce bottle.

What Maintenance is doing:

  • Bollards placed in areas where there is vehicle damage to roofs
  • Working with the new landscape company on start-up
  • Testing irrigation lines to prepare for Summer
  • Planning and managing the annual planting project
  • Snow removal and mitigation
  • Sewer line maintenance
  • Daily property maintenance

CANYON CLUB CONDOMINIUM HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION 4/01/2019 4/01/2020 INSURANCE NEWSLETTER

Annually your Board of Directors purchases insurance for the condominium association that covers the buildings, personal property of the association, general liability on the common areas, fidelity coverage and directors’ and officer’s coverage. As unit owners, it is important that you maintain your own insurance to cover unit item s that are your responsibility as detailed in Canyon Club’ s amended declarations and insurance and maintenance chart, your personal property and liability exposures that are not covered under your association’ s master insurance policy.

If there were a covered property loss at Canyon Club, the master association’ s policy would rebuild the basic structure. The insurance and maintenance chart states that the association provides “bare walls” coverage on the interior meaning that in the event of a covered loss we will rebuild to the drywall and subfloors.

When obtaining an individual unit owner’s insurance policy, if living in the unit, you need to obtain an HO6 (Condominium owner’ s) policy. The HO6 should include these four basic coverages: unit coverage, personal property coverage, liability coverage and loss assessment. The unit coverage should cover items specified in the declarations as the responsibility of the unit owner including window treatments, floor coverings, appliances, cabinets, counter tops, bathroom fixtures and any improvements/betterments made since original construction. Personal property coverage should include all furnishings and clothing. This coverage should be written on a replacement cost basis. Make sure the limit is adequate to cover the replacement of all your furniture, clothing, kitchen wares including dishes, pots and pans, CDs, towels and linens etc. The unit owner needs to purchase liability insurance for anything that occurs within their unit. When someone enters your unit, the liability exposure becomes yours. Finally, loss assessment coverage applies if you are assessed by the association for an under insured covered claim or the deductible portion of a claim. Most HO6 policies include one thousand of loss assessment coverage. The association has a 3% wind hail deductible which could result in an individual assessment of $4,395 and a $10,000 property deductible which can be assessed to a unit owner. To raise your loss assessment to $5,000 to cover the wind/hail deductible should be a minimal annual cost. Make sure to check with your personal lines agent to see what is available and that there are no sub-limits or special endorsements needed to cover either deductibles.

If renting the unit out, you need to purchase a rental condominium policy (landlord’s policy). The landlord’ s policy should offer unit coverage, personal property coverage, liability coverage as well as a loss of rents in the event the unit must be vacated while it is being repaired/rebuilt.

We recommend that each unit owner take pictures or videos of the inside of your home and store them somewhere away from your home. In the even t of a loss, th is makes claims handling much easier.

If you have questions regarding the association’s insurance you can reach our agent, Pat Wilderotter, at 720-212-2065. To request a ceriificate of insurance, please email your request to certificate@thinkccig.com or fax your request to 303-799-0156 attn: HOA Dept.

Save or Shred: How Long to Keep Documents

Even though we live in a digital age, paperwork still overwhelms many of us. Bank statements, tax returns, bills, paystubs: It can be confusing to know what to keep and what can be safely disposed of.

The good news? You can probably get rid of more documents than you think — and most of what you should keep can be scanned and stored digitally.

Remember: When you get rid of personalized documents, delete the digital versions and shred paper ones. Never toss important documents in the trash or recycling; they’re prime targets for identity thieves.

  • Car: Loan documents: keep until you pay off your car. Title: Keep until you sell your car.
  • Home: Keep mortgage documents and major home improvement receipts indefinitely.
  • Finances; debit and credit card receipts: Keep until you’ve checked them against your monthly statement. Bank and retirement plan statements: Keep quarterly statements until you receive your year-end statement; keep paper or digital copies of annual statements for at least 7 years after you retire or close the account.
  • Investments: Keep purchase receipts until you sell the investments; if your year-end statement includes this information, keep statements instead.
  • Tax Returns (1040 forms, etc.): Keep printed or digital copies of returns indefinitely. Supporting documents (receipts, W-2s, bank interest forms, etc. ): Keep for 7 years. Encrypt digital copies on your computer or keep them on a secure USB drive.

MAINTENANCE ISSUES:

Canyon Club counts on our residents to help keep us informed of issues in our community.

Cold Weather Reminder: Please use caution when accessing stairs and sidewalks. Remember, areas can be wet or ice covered. Please follow all winter storm parking guidelines so we can keep the roadways clear.

Winter snowstorm parking procedures:

  • 1st day of storm: Park on the south and east sides of the street
  • 2nd day of storm: Park on the north and west sides of the street Storms are not an excuse to park in the “No Parking” areas or yellow marked streets, curbs or fire lanes.
  • We have salt buckets all around the property for anybody to use on icy areas, please use sparingly a little goes a long way.

What Maintenance has completed:

  • Straightening and resetting edging that has been smashed down or has popped up.
  • Cleaned out islands in front of 124 and 166, cleaned out rocks and repurposed throughout the property, added soil to help cover roots, laid down new weed fabric and covered with mulch
  • Replaced a few hundred broken or damaged fence pickets
  • Moved the stop sign in front of 175 forward about 15’ so that when stopped at it you can see down the street.
  • Replaced the two main stop signs.
  • Painted all maintenance, storage, and laundry room doors to match all the other doors

7 Ways to Prepare for a Winter Storm – This list covering driving, dress, and home will make sure you’re plenty prepared for any winter storm.

Keep these seven tips in mind to help you prepare for any unexpected weather:

  • Learn winter weather terms: Know what each winter weather advisory, watch or warning means and how you should respond.
  • Service your furnace: Have your furnace checked annually, especially if you rarely use it. You’ll want it to be in tip-top shape if you do need it.
  • Plan for back-up power for individuals requiring use of medical equipment.
  • Brush up on winter driving tips: If you are uncomfortable driving in snow and ice, avoid it whenever possible.
  • Keep the pantry stocked: It’s smart to keep your house stocked with groceries all winter long. Should the power go out, you’ll want to have plenty of extra water and nonperishable food that you can prepare without cooking.
  • Prepare emergency kits: Keep one emergency kit in your home and one in each family member’s vehicle.
  • Keep warm clothes on hand: Keep layers in your car, and make sure you have a large, water-resistant coat that can fit over several layers of clothing. You’ll also want a pair of waterproof boots that will fit over several pairs of socks.

Remember, animals get cold too. Do not leave your pets outside when the temps dip.

 

MAINTENANCE ISSUES

Canyon Club counts on our residents to help keep us informed of issues in our community.

You are our eyes and ears. If you have concerns, questions or suggestions for maintenance please communicate them through the HOA office by calling the office manager, 303-757-8527, email to canyonclubcondos@gmail.com. Maintenance emergencies must be called into the maintenance emergency line at 720-385-8158.

Winter is upon us. The pool has been winterized and covered for the season, pool furniture put away, salt buckets placed around the property, and drain buckets set out to help control ice during snowmelt. Designscapes completed their final clean- up of the grounds last week.

Completed Projects this Fall

  • Built a 10’x12’ shed to house the pool furniture, pool cover, salt buckets and drain buckets.
  • Cleaned out and revived the stairwell at the point.
  • Inspected every stair tread in the complex. Roadrunner Fabrication repaired all bad/broken welds.
  • We have two bike racks for people to use, one is on the side of unit 82 in the courtyard and the other is in front of unit 128 by the laundry room. We are open to suggestions to place a couple more.
  • All services have been done on maintenance equipment including new rear brakes on the Ford.

We have also had a large influx of sewer backup problems again. I would like to remind everyone that our plumbing is 50 years old and to be cautious of what you are putting in it. Please do not flush anything other than toilet paper – including wipes, feminine products, or anything else! These products do not break down like toilet paper. Flush-able wipes and other cotton products also do not break down and cause clogs. Do not put fibrous vegetables, any kind of protein, or fatty/greasy foods down the garbage disposal. All these things will build up and cause a clog.

Roof & Hail Storm Update – The Board has hired Reconstruction Experts as our general contractor. Reconstruction Experts work with HOA Communities specifically. We have interviewed roofing companies and are in the process deciding on who will be selected.

We will reconstruct and repair several buildings after

the first of the year to understand all issues we are facing and develop a detailed timeline and estimate of costs and use this information to proceed with our claim.
