The homeowners association of a Bon Air condominium complex has been charged in Chesterfield General District Court for failing to maintain its property as required by the county’s building code.
The misdemeanor summons filed Jan. 17 against Edgehill Condominium Association Inc., stems from multiple building code violations identified last August by Joseph E. Moncrief, an inspector with the county’s Department of Building Inspection.
According to Moncrief, the violations include exposed footings, holes under foundation walls, holes in exterior walls, a leaky roof and improperly installed support columns under a common walkway.
