Preserving Right to Enforce Restrictions
Q: A homeowner in the planned community I manage has installed a shed in his backyard. Under the association’s declaration of restrictions, the homeowner is required to get written permission to install this type of structure, but didn’t. He refuses to remove it, saying that multiple other similar sheds are visible in his neighbors’ yards. If the association sues him, what’s the likelihood that other owners’ unapproved structures will affect the outcome?
