Have a question. Getting ready to build a garage and have deed restrictions of 20x28. I am thinking of going 22x34. Just what can they do to you if you build bigger?
They will come out to measure it and if it's longer they will make you change it. If you don't they will fine you with interest and if you still won't change it the will put a lean against your house and you will have an big problem when you decide to sell your house. Even if they don't come out you may have to disclose it when you sell. Then it's up to the new owner to either have you fix it or chance it themselves.danh63 said:Have a question.

That thought did cross my mind! I can't build big enough for the next boat. Will have to have a plan B. If I had my way I would have moved somewhere where their were no restrictions but had to compromiseGRH said:That's this boat... what about the next one
A garage is never big enough it seems.....
DittoMr. Demeanor said:Pour the slab longer and do it so you can accomodate adding a workshop on to the back or open it up. If you plan it right, you could put in a beam now across the back wall so you could cut it out later and add length. If they ask you why the slab is longer, tell them your going to use it fr a grilling area or something.
And when the assessor does a reval on the property, there's a very good chance he WILL get caught.djm said:Ditto
If you absolutely will not be able to get a variance then build to their size and accomodate them throughout the permit & inspections process but when the final is done and they are out of your hair start building your addition.
It is a board made up of neighbors. One couple didn't finish the front like the front of their house like the restriction says and all she told the wife was they thought they would never hear the end of it. One guy in there hasn't paid his dues in 2 years and they put a lein against his home. I think all that is going to do is get them their money if he sells.jb said:depends who enforces the restrictions. our builder enforced the restrictions(one builder built all 108 homes), but now he sold the remaining dozen lots and a committee of neighbors decide. Is the association funded for situations like fighting you?
Someone administers the association. Any one else in teh nighborhood breaking any covenants?? what have they done in the past?
