Learn What The HOA Rules & Regulations Are Before You Buy

HOA Rules & Regulations

HOA Fees can be charged monthly or quarterly or annually. Management companies are often hired to collect the HOA dues. Each subdivision has their own rules and regulations and what may be a rule in one neighborhood might not even be an issue in another. Overall Homeowners Association rules and regulations go completely unnoticed because the majority of people know what is required simply by being in the neighborhood, however what may seem perfectly fine to one person may be completely unacceptable to another. Regardless of whether your community has a homeowners association or restrictive covenants these are common rules and regulations…

  • Fences, most neighborhoods have guidelines on type of material and height.
  • Parking, some say you need to park in the garage, most say you can’t park in the street.
  • Commercial Vehicles, some neighborhoods don’t allow certain commercial vehicles
  • Outside Play Equipment, trampolines, swing sets, basketball nets…better check.
  • Running a Business, computer sales or home office versus body shop in the garage
  • Maintaining Your Yard
  • Type of pets

These are just a few examples of the common types of restrictive covenants or HOA Rules.   On the Residential Property Disclosure you will find the contact information for the management company or Homeowners Association President so call or email them and request all the community guidelines, rules and regulations for the neighborhood.
