This Month: IHCA Insurance, Overgrown Hedges

The “Ask the IHCA” monthly column appears in the Issaquah Highlands Community Association (IHCA) section of Connections almost every month. The primary purpose of the IHCA is to preserve, maintain, enhance, and protect the value of property and amenities in the community in accordance with the governing documents. Here are a few of the most popular questions asked recently using the “Ask the IHCA” web form.

Does the IHCA insurance policy cover houses or is it limited to condos and townhouses in the community?

The blanket insurance policy carried by the Issaquah Highlands Community Association (IHCA) does not cover single-family homes. It covers common areas that the IHCA is responsible for maintaining.

I received a reminder notice to cut back an overgrown hedge in my front yard. Can I wait until next summer?

Fall is a great time of year for trimming back overgrown vegetation. Any vegetation that is up against your foundation can trap moisture and welcome pests. It is always advised to leave 12 to 18 inches between plants and your home.
