Looking after the Village
Looking after the Village
Keeping Conwy Marina Village well maintained and attractive is a high priority for owners. The Management Company ensures the houses and apartments are painted regularly while Covenants ensure owners individually play their part.
There are a number of Covenants which all property owners contractually agree to when they purchase their properties. These are automatically extended to tenants or anyone else using properties in the Village.
The Covenants were set up to ensure that the quality and standards of the Village were maintained for all owners and residents to enjoy in the years to come. They've been doing that successfully now for over 20 years. We would ask all owners and their tenants and visitors to please adhere to them.
Painting and Gardening
The Management Company arranges for the exterior of all houses and apartments to be painted every three years. The cost is covered by the annual maintenance charge and includes two coats of quality Johnstone's paint or stain applied to rendering, doors, windows, soffits, fascias, lamps, and railings.
The Company uses a reputable, local Contractor to carry out the work. The Management Company regularly solicits feedback which shows that owners are very satisfied with the service provided.
Sixty six areas of gardens to the fronts and sides of houses and apartments are maintained by the Management Company using the services of a local Gardening Contractor. Again, the cost is covered by the annual maintenance charge.
Owners have made it clear to the Management Company that they do not wish to see significant changes to the houses or apartments so the Company generally will not authorise changes to the design, materials or colours of the properties.
The "Useful Contacts" page of this site provides information as to where owners can purchase replacement items and find Contractors who have a track record of working in the Village to owners' satisfaction.
