WLFCA has four components: the Common Interest Community, the Units, the Common Elements, and the Limited Common Elements.
Common Interest Community is the real property which includes the land, every building and all Improvements.
Unit is a physical portion of the Common Interest Community designated for separate ownership or occupancy as described by boundaries establishing the interior space of a residence.
Common Elements are the land, every building other than the units, and all Improvements.
Limited Common Elements are those portions of the Common Elements allocated by the Declaration for what amounts to be the exclusive use of a particular unit for which the Unit’s owner is responsible to maintain, repair, remove and replace. In all other respects, Limited Common Elements are under the control and supervision of the Board of Directors subject to the provisions of Notice and Hearing.
The significance of a Limited Common Element is the responsibility of the Unit’s owner to maintain, repair, remove and replace the Limited Common Elements allocated to that unit. A list of Limited Common Elements can be found in the WLFCA Declaration, Article VI, Section 6.1. The Association assumes responsibility for some Limited Common Elements as a Common Expense in order to establish a uniform appearance and standard of care such as foundations and roofs; siding and trim; gutters and leaders; garage doors and their operating mechanisms; occasional groundskeeping of planting beds and, unless previously modified by a Unit Owner, entryway steps and stoops, walkways and trash bins. Driveways are under the control of WSTD and are not Limited Common Elements.
