The Board’s update to the community (attached) on egress window installations in units with rooms in their lower basement levels contained the legal opinions of Association Counsel Peter K. Stackhouse, Wil Washington with Chadwick-Washington, and Pia Trigiani with Mercer Trigiani, PC. Based upon those opinion, the Board concluded that egress window installations at Fairlington Villages could not proceed without an amendment to the Association’s by-laws, which requires a two-thirds vote (1,135 units) in favor of such a change at a regular or special meeting of the Unit Owners.
An amendment to the by-laws and implementation of a policy for egress window installation, an expensive, multi-year proposition requiring countless hours from Association volunteers and office administrative staff and the engagement of additional outside professionals including the Association’s insurance agent/carrier, auditor, legal counsel, and civil engineers to assist in the performance of due diligence, could benefit potentially 62% of the community (units with basements and at least one room with a window) directly.
