Condo and Homeowner Association Advantages
Owning your own home is wonderful, and also a responsibility. When you choose to live in a condominium community, there are condo or homeowner association (HOA) fees that lighten some of that responsibility, as certain maintenance and management duties are handled collectively, typically for a monthly fee.
Here’s what is covered in our communities:
- Landscaping and front lawn maintenance for homes
- Maintenance of community amenities and common areas
- Master insurance policy for common areas
- Reserve fund for common element replacement
- Trash removal
- In some cases, monthly water and sewer costs
In addition, condo/HOA fees provide homeowners exclusive use of community amenities, such as:
- Private community center for resident enjoyment
- Resort-style pool with cabana and outdoor kitchen with grilling stations
- Children’s playground
- 24/7 community fitness center
- Community lakes and walking paths
- Welcoming community entrances
- Professional landscape design, and plan for continual care of grounds

New homeowners can count on our warranty department to quickly and conveniently handle your requests. We’ll also help you easily determine what’s under warranty in your new home, and for how long.
As a new home owner, you’ll have a scheduled orientation meeting and inspection where you will receive a complete “Homeowners Warranty Agreement” covering all responsibilities in detail. In your first year, we offer both a 30 day and 11 month warranty visit to address any non-emergency service requests.
30 Day Warranty Visit: Your “Cosmetic” items (as outlined in the warranty) are addressed at the 30 day mark of your ownership.
11 Month Warranty Visit: All other warrantable items will be addressed at your requested 11 month warranty visit.
To schedule your 30 day and 11 month visit, submit an online request with your list of items using the Warranty Request form below or email Warranty@dragas.com. All requests for service must be submitted in writing.
If you have any additional questions, or need help, please call our Warranty department at
Warranty Department: 757-965-4345 (Monday -Friday, 9am to 5pm)
Afterhours Emergency Line: 757-453-4644 (After 5pm and on weekends)
In addition to our builder warranty, your home is also protected by the Quality Builders Warranty Program (QBW), a premiere ten year new home warranty program backed by Liberty Mutual.
Here’s a brief overview of the Quality Builders Warranty program:
The First Year: The builder warrants the home against specified defects in workmanship and materials that are the result of non-conformity with QBW’s warranty standards, as well as any major structural defects as defined in the warranty. **Cosmetic items must be reported to the Builder at the Homeowner Orientation inspection or no later than 7 days after closing. All other cosmetic issues unless outlined in the warranty as the builder’s responsibility will not be addressed.
The Second Year: The builder warrants the home against specified defects in the wiring, piping and duct work, as well as any major structural defects as defined in the warranty.
The Third through Tenth Year: Should any major structural defect (as defined by the warranty) occur during this period, QBW will replace, repair or pay the reasonable cost of the repair or replacement, through its insurer.
Throughout the 10-year period, the warranty is automatically transferable to subsequent buyers, protecting the builder as well as the homeowner.
