Deed Restriction Violations
Posted on Oct 3rd, 2020

The Board has received many complaints from lot owners about their neighbors not following deed restrictions. This has prompted us to take action.
Please be advised that the DCCCLOA Board began sending out deed restriction violation notices over the summer to several property owners that are not following deed restrictions. The Board's focus is on the most egregious violations and those that threaten the health and safety of the community as a whole. The Board will investigate and review complaints in this regard when a complaint is received from a fellow lot owner. Lot owners can utilize the "Contact Us" section of this website to report violations. 
The Board is acting in good faith and upholding its responsibility on behalf of ALL owners. If you receive a deed restriction violation notice, please contact us. The Board is aware that there are many deed restriction violations that have existed within the DCCCLOA for quite some time, with no action being pursued. We ask that owners be good community citizens and not use this as an excuse or justification for ignoring deed restrictions as mandated by State law.  
If a lot owner is in need of assistance in bringing their property into compliance, they should contact the DCCCLOA Board before they receive a notice. The Board may be able to help find volunteers and/or resources to help owners rectify long-standing issues.
Thank you.
