Do you live in an Home Owners Association (HOA) neighborhood? If so, then you are aware that there are many rules and regulations that go along with living in this type of neighborhood. This is also the case when it comes to installing a fence. As a homeowner in an HOA, you can’t just install a fence when and if you want. Instead, you need to get permission from the HOA to go ahead with any plans to build a fence on your property. This also goes for any other changes you wish to make on the outside of your property.
Importance of Contacting Your HOA Before Installing a Fence
If your goal is to install a fence, you will need to know the exact HOA regulations for doing this. Does the HOA allow chain link fences, split rails, or containment fences for example? What are the proper dimensions for a fence on your particular property? It would be a sorry waste of time and money to install a fence that your HOA objects to. That’s why it is important to understand these rules and regulations before making a fence choice. To get the HOA approval for a new fence, this typically takes anywhere from one week to two months. But it’s worth the wait to ensure you install the right fence according to the rules in place. If you were to choose to simply go ahead with a fencing project without HOA permission, you could face fines and orders to tear down the fence.
Of course, this can be avoided by working with Western Fence Company who will ensure the job is done professionally and to the standards outlined by the HOA.
