When your home is part of an HOA, you need to follow various guidelines and rules that extend to your fencing installations. One of the best ways to avoid disputes with your neighbors is to make sure that your community fence aligns with the local laws and HOA guidelines.
Share the projects’ basics with neighbors and follow all the zoning regulations before construction, and you can easily have a new fence without getting into any skirmishes with your neighbors. We at Superior Fencing Co of San Antonio are a company with more than 15 years of experience in the industry and can plan, design, and install the type of HOA fencing you need for your property.
Some Things to Focus On
These are some of the basic things you must focus on while planning homeowners association fencing:
- Observe Boundaries– Never risk having to tear down your fencing by going even an inch beyond your property line. Study the property plat or line drawing or order a new survey to ensure you have the boundaries right. Most credible fencing companies install community fences at least a foot inside the boundary line, to be on the safer side.
- Be Aware of Local Zoning Regulations– Hire a reliable and experienced fencing contractor; they would be aware of the local zoning regulations and obtain the necessary permits for setbacks, height, and other restrictions. Corner lots may have more restrictive rules as blind curves limit driving visibility. You can avoid disputes by reviewing regulations with the fencing company before you choose the fence you want.
- Follow Your HOA Rules– It isn’t the fencing company’s responsibility to know all the dos and don’ts of your homeowner association, and that’s something you need to be aware of when building community fences. HOAs can dictate everything from maintenance, style, and height of the feature. If your HOA requires all structures to match, then you won’t have too much wiggle room.
- Be Aware of the CC&R’s– the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions or CC&R’s are one of the critical aspects you need to be aware of and keep in view while getting a new fence for your property. Read your CC&R and have a complete understanding of what you can and can’t do regarding homeowners association fencing.
The CC&Rs dictate the homeowners’ and the Association’s responsibilities. Once you have understood what those are, it becomes your duty to be in line with those rules. You can always get your doubts cleared and questions answered by the HOA manager or an HOA board member.
