Expansion Plans Aren’t Violation of Deed Restrictions

Facts: Two homeowners who owned a single lot purchased the lot next to theirs for the purpose of expanding their home. After they had purchased the second lot, they asked their community association to approve their plans to expand their home by converting their existing garage into livable space and building a new garage onto the house. To do this, they would annex a portion of the second lot into their lot, construct the new garage over the original property line and onto the annexed portion, and then sell the remainder of the second lot as a separate home site.
