Association Documents

To operate and control the affairs of our community, the Del Mesa Carmel Community Association has been established as a nonprofit corporation. The Association operates under its governing documents (Articles of Incorporation, Declaration of Protective Restrictions, Bylaws and Ground Rules) and a Maintenance Contract. 

Ownership, transfer of ownership, lease or rental are strictly the function of the homeowner as long as any new permanent occupant is approved by the Association.

All owners and occupants are subject to the provisions and requirements of the Association Documents below:

Cost of Living at Del Mesa

Condominium owners must pay a monthly association fee based on the size of their home. This fee covers the cost of utilities furnished to the units, garbage, collection, external maintenance of the homes, liability insurance for the common areas, costs of operating the common facilities (clubhouse, swimming pool, etc..), security at the clubhouse, and salaried for approximately 38 employees. 


Also, the monthly association fee does not cover the following:  1) real property taxes to your home, 2) cable TV, 3) telephone, 4) earthquake insurance, 5) insurance on your personal property & interior upgrades and finishes (furniture, clothes, jewelry, cabinets, carpets, etc..) and 6) public liability insurance in case of individual liability for injury's to others. 

  • What Type of Homeowners Insurance Should You Buy?

As an owner of a condominium unit, you need to purchase what is known as an HO-6 policy. A condominium owner’s policy provides coverage for certain building components within the interior of the unit not covered by the Association’s Master policy and your furniture and personal property. This is known as Dwelling Coverage and Personal Property/Contents Coverage and it ensures that your damaged or destroyed property is protected up to the insurance limits you purchase. Your condominium owner’s policy should also include Personal Liability coverage in the event that you are sued for accidentally hurting other people or damaging their property.

Remodeling of Homes and Landscaping

To ensure the existing architectural and landscaping integrity is maintained, before making certain changes to a home, inside or out, a resident must obtain approval from the Building and Grounds Committee. Specific requirements can be found in the Del Mesa Ground Rules.

Application for Approval of Ownership or Occupancy

Ownership, transfer of ownership, lease or rental are strictly the function of the homeowner as long as any new permanent occupant is approved by the Association.

No person may permanently occupy a home at Del Mesa before approved for occupancy. Each prospective resident must complete and submit an Application of Ownership or Occupant to the General Manager. After receipt and approval of the completed application, staff will reach out to schedule a meeting with the General Manager. This meeting is designed to welcome new residents into the community and inform them of the Association policies and procedures.

Occupancy on a permanent basis is restricted to two persons per home unless an exception is authorized by the Board of Directors. Minimum age is 55 years, except for a married couple where only one spouse needs to meet the 55 years of age requirement. 

Cars & Driving

Each home is provided one covered parking space. There are a limited number of uncovered parking spaces for residents with a second car. Del Mesa discourages residents from keeping more than two cars on the property and prohibits the parking of trucks and RV's in the residential parking areas. Del Mesa expects residents with a restricted drivers license to striclty obey those restrictions. The maximum speed limit on Del Mesa road is 25 miles per hour. 


Although Del Mesa is not the most appropriate community for pets, pets are permitted if they are kept inside the homes, on a leash when outside the home, and are not a nuisance to other residents. Pet owners must remove their pet's excrement from the common area immediately.
