Title insurance covers liens, encumbrances, or defects in the title. It has nothing to do with this situation.

I agree. I don't think title insurance will help.

I don't think that concept applies here, the determination of compliance is left to the residents. Your neighbors impact your home's value and if you believe they are doing something that has a negative impact and is out of compliance you should report it. If out of compliance they will be treated equally as all other out of compliant properties. Before we moved here we investigated all the covenants and the processes. We knew about ARC, we knew about the set backs and the risks for infringement and we knew about the complaint system. If your neighbors are happy with what you do then there will be no issues regardless on what you do....until they try to sell.

This is what happens when neighbors do not report violations of the deed restrictions in a timely manner. Neighborhoods change and all it takes is one future resident to complain about something that was done many years prior without the new owners knowledge at all. Inevitably, what happens is others in the neighborhood copycat each other when they see something and they think it is OK to do. Tell your son good luck but they will probably find it against the rules and he will have to remedy the situation out of his own pocket.

I know the landscaping design my neighbors submitted to ARC was not going to be the final design, it was just a design submitted for approval.. No one from ARC does a follow up on the design and also landscapers should be held accountable for cost of unauthorized landscape.

Did they tell them what exactly is out of compliance? Many many villas have removed all grass and replaced with stone so there must be something more. If they do not know the exact issue they should ask before they do anything. When they do apply for approval they should include that they bought it that way and they have not made any changes to date.

I'm not clear on what was out of compliance?

How do you learn about the landscaping requirements for the new communities still under construction? The builder landscaping looks super low cost ;-)

I'll be interested to comply with the Florida low water guidelines.

True many villas have no grass and have installed stone; however, those homes are likely out of compliance. At least 70% of the villas in our are have removed grass and have stone. It is prohibited in our restrictions. While it looks nice, they are out of compliance.
