Isn’t Loma Vista West just like an apartment complex?
No, it has many advantages. You have equity in your unit and a say in how the cooperative is run by electing the Board of Directors and participating in membership meetings or serving on committees
How are after hours maintenance calls processed?
When you call the office after hours, you will have the option to be transferred to the answering service. You need to provide your name, address and phone number. The maintenance person on call will contact you before coming out to ascertain the nature of the problem. No work can begin until the work order is signed, so it is required that the member be present when maintenance arrives.
What are the lockout charges?
$10 during office hours and $20 after hours or on the weekends
Can I purchase a membership and let my family or friends live there?

Can I sublet my unit?
No. The Board of Directors does not allow subletting in Loma Vista West Townhouses. If you purchase a membership, you must live in the unit 100% of the time.
Can we make improvements on our units?
You can make improvements to your unit provided that they are approved by the Board of Directors or its appointed representative. These improvements must be approved on an Alteration/Installation Permit before you do them. You also have the option of accepting improvements from a previous member. The cooperative does not maintain member-owned improvements; this is the member’s responsibility

Why aren’t anonymous complaints processed?
Our cooperative is run on democratic principles and there is a grievance procedure in place. To properly investigate a complaint, the Board must have written evidence to act on since complaints can end up in court. This process assists the Board in providing equal treatment for all involved.
If I see something suspicious should I call the police or security?
If in doubt call both, but always security. Security does random patrols and responds to calls when on duty. It is very helpful to the cooperative if you call security and have them file a report. This goes to the board and management and helps them keep track of any potential problem areas. Call the police for any emergencies or illegal activity.
Is our water free?
No. The coop pays for it’s water use as do it’s members in their carrying charge
