Q.

What are Deed Restrictions?

A.

Deed restrictions are legal binding regulations that are placed into the deed of a property that restrict the things a homeowner can and can't do with their property. They help to ensure that Northdale remains a desirable, attractive, well-maintained community that homeowners are proud to call home.

Q.

How are Deed Restrictions enforced?

A.

The enforcement of deed restrictions is a multi-step process. When a violation(s) is found, Merit sends letter #1 to the homeowner requesting them to correct the problem(s). Merit will then complete a second inspection. Merit will send the homeowner letter #2 if the violation(s) has not been corrected. Merit will then complete a third inspection. If the violation(s) remains after letter #3, legal action will be pursued. The resident will be notified of this step in the fourth letter.

 

Each homeowner has the right to enforce compliance to the deed restrictions from other fellow homeowners.

Q.

What should I do if I get a letter from the Deed Restriction Committee?

A.

Read the letter carefully. You may not know you violated a deed restriction. It is usually something quite simple that can easily be rectified. For clarification, refer to the deed restriction documents for your village.

 

If you are still not sure what issue the letter is addressing; need additional time to fix the problem; or have extenuating circumstances which prevent taking action to correct the violation; it is important to communicate with Merit at NCA@MeritFL.com.
