  • Is it permissible to lease my home?

  • What are the Procedures for Renters?
    • Residents who wish to rent their homes must adhere to the following procedures:

      There is a minimum 90 day period for rentals. Residents should submit the request to lease directly to Alliant Management, at least 30 days in advance. The rental application is available from Alliant Management, and is also on the HOA website under the Documents tab.

Fees for international background checks are $45 and payable to Wildcat Run Community Association.

      If the rental applicant is found through a realtor, the realtor may contact Alliant to determine if the background check that they perform meets our criteria. Any renter found through a realtor must either use the Lease document found on the Master HOA website or complete the Lease Addendum form, found on the HOA website, under the Documents tab.

      Once the application is submitted to Alliant, along with the consent for a background check, Alliant will process the rental application and background check and forward it to the individual association representative of the Cypress Cove Condo Association, Wildcat Cove Homeowners Association, the Pines Homeowners Association, Lakeside Villas Condo Association, Cypress Bend Condo Association or the Village at Wildcat Run Condo Association. Once approved by the individual condo or homeowners association, it will be forwarded to the Community Association Board rental representative for final approval and Alliant will notify the renter and the home or condo owner.

      Occupancy prior to final approval is PROHIBITED. Lease renewals require the same approvals as the original lease.

    • New Mailbox information

      We now have a new vendor for mailboxes for the single family homes in Wildcat Run. The vendor is Ornamental Columns Statues Inc. Their website is; http://ornamentalcolumn.com/, their email is ornamentalcolumn@aol.com. The address is 16179 S Tamiami Trail, Fort Myers, Florida 33908 and the phone number is 239-482-3911

      The new mailboxes require a little more coordination for installation, but are less expensive overall than our previous vendor. Owners who wish to obtain a new mailbox should follow the following procedure.
      • An Owner wishing to purchase a new mailbox must contact Alliant Property Management to order the mailbox. Alliant Property Management will then contact Ornamental Columns with the order and deliver the light housing that Ornamental Columns needs to fabricate the mailbox. Alliant Property Management will deliver the interior lighting parts and photo cell to the Wildcat Run owner. Ornamental Columns will contact the owner to schedule installation. Payment for the mailbox and installation is made directly to Ornamental Columns. Ornamental Columns will provide the invoice.

      • The owner then should contact West Coast Lighting at 239-690-2852, Glen Boulanger at Atlantic Power, 239-565-7094 or an electrician of their choice to have the light fixture installed.
      The approximate costs are $1004.80 for mailbox w/delivery and lighting material, $25 for Cement Sealer (recommended by Ornamental Columns to seal the cement so it doesn't need to be painted) and approximately $150 for electrical reinstallation.

      We have installed new mailboxes at these addresses if residents are interested in seeing what the new mailbox product looks like.

  • What is the difference between the Master Association Board and the Country Club Board?
    • Within Wildcat Run, we have two separate governing bodies that deal with different aspects of life within our Community. Each of these organizations has its own Board of Directors and Officers and act independently, but cooperatively, with the other.

      The WILDCAT RUN GOLF AND COUNTRY CLUB is associated with social and recreational aspects of our community. Their areas of concern are the Country Club, Grill Room, Tennis Courts, Fitness and Wellness Center, and Golf Course. At least one owner of each Lot or Unit must be a social member of the Country Club.

      The WILDCAT RUN COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION is associated with the maintenance and care taking of our Community in areas not associated with the golf course. The Community Association's areas of concern are the Common areas: roads, storm sewers, perimeter landscaping, lakes, irrigation, entry area and gatehouse, security, and enforcement of the Covenants and Restrictions. Every person who is the record owner of a Lot or Unit within the sub-division, is a member of the Association for as long as they own the Lot or Unit. The complete list of Association duties and responsibilities is contained in the Articles of Incorporation.

      The Wildcat Run Community Association is a homeowners association incorporated as a not-for-profit pursuant to Chapters 617 and 720 of the Florida Statutes. Chapter 720 deals mainly with homeowners associations. The Association complies with the Florida Sunshine Laws. All of our meetings are open to all members. There are four sets of documents that govern our Community Association. They are the Declaration of Covenants and Restrictions, The Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws, and the Design Review Committee Guidelines. We recommend that all of our residents become familiar with these documents.
