~ Frequently Asked Questions ~
  1. What are the Slope Assessment fees and when are they due?

    The Slope Assessment fees (or annual Maintenance Fees) are payable in two payments on September 1st and March 1st of every year. These fees pay for water and maintenance of the trees and vegetation on the slopes that are prevalent throughout the area. You will receive a bill in the mail, and the payments should be sent to Mother Lode Bookeeping (see the Contact Us page).

  2. Who should be contacted with questions or concerns regarding the San Elijo Hills #1 Homeowners Association (HOA), the slopes, vegetation or trees, or our neighborhood in general?

    Contact the Board of Directors at info@sanelijohills1.org and they will respond to inquiries and handle questions and concerns accordingly.

  3. What should be done before making any exterior architectural modifications regardless of how minor?

    You need to obtain an Request for Architectural Improvement form that can be downloaded from the Documents web page. This form can be filled out electronically, then printed. After all needed signatures are obtained it can be scanned and e-mailed to the Architectural and Planning Board at info@sanelijohills1.org. If scanning is not available, or if paint samples are included, the form may be mailed to the following address:

    San Elijo Hills HOA
    P.O. Box 232
    Solana Beach, CA 92075

    Some minor modifications such as exterior painting and roof replacements may be approved quickly. Some colors, types and manufacturers have been pre-approved by the HOA, please consult the Policy Manual for more details.

  4. Who is the Architectural and Planning Board?

    The Architectural and Planning Board consists of three volunteer homeowners having experience in land development, land planning, architecture, engineering, or associated fields, as per Article V of the PC&R´s.

  5. What is allowed on the easement side of my home?

    About one-half of the properties in the community have easements on both sides of the home. This allows a homeowner to landscape and have exclusive use of the land up to the adjoining neighbor's exterior wall. Along with this privilege comes restrictions. The original developer was thoughtful in restricting the size and height of side windows for privacy, also side set back requirements for structures. In general, these are common sense courtesy guidelines for both neighbors affected by the easements. These restrictions are contained in the official documents received by every homeowner when buying their home. See Article XIV of the PC&R´s and Section 4.0 of the Policy Manual - these can be found on the Documents section of this site. Modification submittals should address these easement restrictions.

  6. Are cars allowed to be parked in private driveways?

    Yes! Although originally disallowed, the PC&R´s were officially modified in 1995 by majority homeowner vote. Cars are still required to be garaged unless garage space is inadequate. The HOA trusts this privilege will not be abused by homeowners parking numerous or unsightly vehicles in the driveways, thereby detracting from the beauty of our special community.

  7. May the trash cans and yard waste be curbed the day before pickup day?

    Yes! But only the day before. Again, maintaining the consistency and beauty of our neighborhood is foremost. If many homeowners curbed their rubbish throughout the week prior to pickup day, the neighborhood would be an unsightly mess. (The City of Solana Beach code enforcement requires trash cans and rubbish not be stored anywhere visible from the street.)
