Do I need a fence approved by my HOA?
Do I need a fence approved by my HOA?

If you live in a subdivision aka a development then there is a good chance you have an HOA. Obtaining approval for your fence from the HOA is a very important first step when looking to have a fence installed on your property. Here are a few helpful steps when considering a fence while under an HOA.

First: locate your documents that are known as the Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions. This should have been given to you when you purchased your home. You also may be able to locate them on the county site that you reside in. If neither of that works talk to a neighbor and see if they can help point you in the direction of your HOA president or property management company. At times they will also dictate whether the fence is allowed in the front yard, back, or how far up the side of your house the fence can be placed. The rules may dictate which materials are acceptable for fences, what colors your fence can be, and the height of the fence. 

Second: Once you have read the restrictions or by-laws and have determined what type, style, height, and placement of the fence may be prior to installing it on your property. These first two steps are recommended prior to contacting a fence company so you are aware of what will be approved. This will help narrow your decisions when speaking with your fence contractor.

Third: Present your plans. Within your CC&R's there should be contact information for whom you need to submit your paperwork too. Most have an application with basic info you list. It will ask for info such as height, color, and a description of the desired fence such as "225' of 4' high 3- Rail Ranch rail fence in white, w/1-4' single gate". Along with this, you can submit a picture of the fence you would like to have approved.

Failing to submit all required paperwork can lead to a delay. Some HOA's conduct only monthly meetings to review the applications submitted so give yourself ample time to get your response in a timely manner. If you want to install a fence that is not currently allowed according to your HOA guidelines, you may have to file an appeal with the board or face fines.

We hope this article was helpful and if you have any questions regarding HOA documents call our office at 302-674-1997 ext. 3 or submit a question on our general contact form.
