IMPORTANT INFORMATION!!!

Hurricane Season has begun!!!  The City of Destin has released the 2019 Destin Hurricane Guide.  The Guide contains information that is important for both you and your property, including important phone numbers to have on hand, evacuation zones (with routes and instructions), helpful procedures to follow before and after storms, and more!

If you are not signed up to get Nixle alerts by text you can visit www.nixle.com and complete a quick registration. You will then public safety notifications directly to your phone from the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Department (including traffic, road closures, weather, etc – this is a year-round service, not just during hurricanes). 

The time to prepare is *now*, not when a storm arrives!!  Stay safe, everyone!!

2019 Destin Hurricane Guide

*****************************************************************

In an effort to enhance safety and emergency response, the City of Destin’s Code Compliance department will be visiting all neighborhoods to ensure that house numbers are clearly visible from the street as per City Ordinance.  If you have received a “courtesy notice” on your door please do not panic; they are simply bringing the situation to your attention.  Please make sure that your house number is clearly visible from the street, is either reflective or of a contrasting color so it will stand out from the house color, and should be Arabic numerals (no Roman numerals) not less than 3″ in height and 1/2″ in width.  These are generally easy to install with small nails.

If your property is on the Harbor or canals you may want to make sure that your house number is clearly marked on your dock/wall as well.  We are very fortunate to have the Coast Guard, FWC, Okaloosa County Sheriff Department, as well as  “fire boat” vessels on the water that can respond as needed.

Thank you for your assistance!

*****************************************************************

The City of Destin has posted the a list of FAQ for those who rent their properties short-term; you can find the list at this link: https://www.cityofdestin.com/faq.aspx?TID=19

Also, please make sure that you review the HIIA PC&Rs Section 4.14(a-g) for the requirements regarding Short-Term Rentals. You can find the required documents under the “HIIA Documents” tab.

Beach Update – March 14, 2019

+++ Beach Project Delayed +++

Due to an emergency shoaling problem that has blocked part of the Tombigbee waterway, the Army Corps of Engineers has delayed the East Pass Dredge project that would have placed sand on the eroded beaches of Holiday Isle.  The County and City are scrambling to try to come up with an alternative plan.  This is not a money problem but dredge/equipment availability problem. 

We will keep you informed as this develops.

Late HOA payments may soon affect credit scores

NEW YORK – May 10, 2016 – A major credit reporting agency says it will soon take into account homeowner association fees. Homeowners who are late on payments may see it affect their credit score.

Sperlonga, a credit data aggregator, is the first company to provide homeowner association (HOA) payment and account status data to Equifax, which is one of the three major credit-reporting agencies. A full rollout of the new HOA reporting to Equifax will go live in October.

Homeowner associations and property management companies collect about $70 billion in HOA payments yearly among at least 333,000 community associations, according to the Community Association Institute.

“Until now, HOA payments have gone largely unreported to the national credit-reporting agencies,” says Matt Martin, chairman and founder of Sperlonga. “Our service will help elevate association payments to the same level of importance as the consumer’s other financial obligations like residential mortgages, auto loans and credit card payments. Property owners that pay HOA fees on time should begin to see the similar impact [on] their credit reports as they would with other payment obligations traditionally found in a credit report.”

Property owners who are late or delinquent on HOA payments will likely see a negative effect on their credit score, just as if they had missed a mortgage payment.

“Introducing new sources of data beyond what has traditionally been found on credit files can provide additional insight into a consumer’s financial behavior and help deliver expanded credit access,” says Mike Gardner, senior vice president at Equifax.
