Residential Alterations

The form below is used to get approval for specific alteration you will be performing to the exterior of your home. You do not need to fill out this form, if you are replacing an existing feature. For example if you are replacing your siding or roof with the same color, then you would not have to get approval.


The deed restrictions for most communities require that the Board or Architectural Committee review all exterior improvements, additions, alterations and modifications. The filing and approval of applications are essential so that the character of the community will be maintained, the rights of all residents are respected and to ensure that no alteration will create a hazardous condition, interfere with Association maintenance operations, or endanger the integrity of structures.

This process may take up to 30 days to complete.

The Owner(s) requesting to make the described addition, alteration or modification and by submitting this form acknowledges and agrees to comply with the following:

  • Owner acknowledges and has read the Association Document of Trust & Restrictions, Bylaws, Declarations, and/or Association Rules prior to submitting this application and review form. Owner agrees to abide by the decision of the Board of Directors.

  • The applicant, and any subsequent owner, is wholly responsible for all initial and recurring costs and liability associated with the installation, maintenance and repair of the described alteration. The Owner further assumes all responsibility for any damage to any common elements and/or property of others and/or injuries that may occur as a result of this alteration and shall minimize interference and inconvenience to others.

  • Any approval granted by the Association shall be contingent upon all work being performed in accordance with all applicable laws, codes, ordinances and regulations of any government and/or agency (ies) and it will be the responsibility of the Owner to obtain at Owner’s cost all necessary certificates, permits and licenses required by such agencies and to provide the Board of Directors with copies of same, as required.

  • The owner agrees to abide by the decision of the Board of Directors. If the modification is not completed as approved, said approval can be revoked and the modification will be required to be removed by the Owner at Owner’s expense, or modified to the acceptance of the Board. The Owner shall be responsible for all reasonable costs and expenses to ensure compliance with Board standards, including attorney’s fees.

  • All approvals granted shall be in writing and automatically expire in six (6) months. Work shall be completed expeditiously once commenced, in a good workman-like manner and be in a timeframe acceptable to the Board.

  • If an exterior change request is wholly or partially denied, the applicant may resubmit the request within thirty (30) days further detailing its merits. The Board shall re-review the request and render a final decision.
