Welcome to the Water's Edge at Fair Lakes HOA Website

Guest Parking...
Do You Genuinely Need to Park There?
We ask all residents to please be a good neighbor and fully utilize all of their private parking spaces - their garage and driveway first, before parking their cars in our limited number of guest parking spots. 
Taking up a parking space with it's not absolutely necessary, can result in someone having to carry groceries much further in the rain, make seniors or disabled guests walk further to visit residents, or parents to carry infants further than needed.  Plus, it's just the neighborly thing to do.
We thank you for your neighborly cooperation.

Drive Safe...Kids are at Play
The warm weather brings kids and families outside and often they play in the streets. While we ask all residents to use the multi-purpose court or grassy circles for kids activities, we also ask all drivers to WATCH OUT FOR KIDS AT PLAY.

Attention: Non-Resident Owners
Please remember to inform your tenants of the rules of the community, especially regarding trash and recycling as well as noise and parking rules. Rental leases also need to require the lessee to comply with all community rules. Fairfax County law also prohibits more than four unrelated people living in a home.
Additionally, owners are not allowed to rent their homes for periods of less than 6 months. Short-term rentals, including daily or weekly rentals such as AirBnB are NOT allowed.
If you do rent your home, renters may subscribe to the Water’s Edge website and receive community emails and announcements.

Thinking About Listing Your Home on Airbnb?
It's Not Allowed By Community Covenants
Airbnb is an online service that allows people to list, find, and rent lodgings in their homes. For some“hosts”, this type of short-term or “bed and breakfast“ rental arrangement lets them rent their entire home, a basement, or just a bedroom for a day, weeks or months at a time.  A host might rent their entire home while the family goes on an extended vacation, or the owner is on a temporary out-of-town work assignment. If the host rents just a bedroom, that room may be offered on an on-going, year-round basis.
The listing of your entire home or even just a room on Airbnb, Craigslist, VRBO, HomeAway, or via any other site or rental service for a rental periods of less than 6 months (including nightly stays) is NOT allowed under community Covenants. Any rentals of a room, rooms, or the entire home requires the owner and tenant to sign a written lease with a rental period of at least six months. The written lease requirement applies to renting your entire home or to having roommates, and must also require the lessee to comply with all HOA rules.  If renting your home,  you should also notify SCS of the property’s rental status.
Additionally, county law limits the number of tenants in any home to no more than four unrelated people.  Fairly regularly, neighbors have reported an owner or their renter who has opened the home to multiple unrelated, short-term renters in a “boarding house” scenario.  The HOA takes swift and appropriate action to close these operations, including notifying the County to investigate and enforce any applicable housing laws.

Volunteer to Help
The Association is looking for several volunteers for help out on a couple committees:
  • Architectural Review Committee (ARC)
  • Open Space Committee
  • Social Committee
  • Website & Newsletter Committee
The community needs a couple people for the ARC and the Open Space Committee to keep our  community looking good and property values high.  It's also tough to create a "sense of community" without getting to know your neighbors so the Social Committee is needed to help people get out and meet their neighbors on a social basis, plan a few friendly events and get people involved.  And lastly, the new website and expanded newsletter won't create itself without a few volunteers for the Website and Communications Committee helping write and edit our resident communications.
If you would like to volunteer for a committee, and WE NEED YOUR HELP.  Please use the Contact Us form and send your message directly to the specific committee.  You may also complete the Committee Volunteer form and submit it directly to SCS.  The form is located on the Forms & Documents page.
