Covenants Corner

COVID-19 NOTICE: During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Broadlands Covenant’s team continues to operate during normal business hours from 9:00am to 5:00pm, Monday through Friday. We are returning phone calls and responding to emails while continuing to patrol the community with our primary focus on trash and yard violations. Even though our priorities have temporarily changed, we are here to address your concerns related to any covenants violation and can be reached at (703) 520-9903 or covenants@broadlandshoa.com.

Your home is a valuable investment so take pride in your curb appeal. A beautiful home with poor upkeep is aesthetically unappealing. Whether you are a tenant or homeowner, you are responsible for maintaining your residence so that it meets the requirements of our covenants guidelines.  If you are not physically able to keep up with your property or can’t find the time, then please consider hiring a lawn service or handyman to preserve the quality of our neighborhood.

CONTACT: covenants@broadlandshoa.com to submit any complaints or inquiries.  Or call Suzan Rodano, Covenants Manager at (703) 520-9903.
