Q. What are deed restrictions?

A. Deed restrictions are legal binding regulations that are placed into the deed of a property that restrict the things a homeowner can and can't do with their property. By owning or living in a property with deed restrictions, you have agreed to abide by these rules. The intent of Deed restrictions is to maintain a ‘uniform’ appearance for a safe, clean, attractive neighborhood, to maintain curb appeal, and ultimately improve property values. Deed restriction enforcement has consistently been one of the top issues for Beacon Meadows homeowners.


Q. What sort of things are covered by deed restrictions ?

A.  The deed restrictions cover areas such as appearance and maintenance of the house, yard, and fences.   Storage buildings, clothes lines, exterior paint colors, vehicle (including commercial) and boat parking, animals and trash accumulation are some other subjects covered.  Each phase of Beacon Meadows has it’s own Deed restrictions.


Q. How are the deed restrictions enforced?

A.  The deed restrictions are legal covenants between home owners. Each homeowner has the right to enforce compliance to the deed restrictions from other fellow homeowners. 


Q. Why doesn't the Board of Trustees do something about enforcing deed restrictions ?

A.  The deed restrictions are legal covenants between home owners. The charter for the Board of Trustees is to use tax dollars to maintain the entrances, perimeter walls, and adjacent grounds, as permitted by the County Board of Commissioners.  The Board has no legal authority to enforce deed restrictions. As a homeowner or resident in Beacon Meadows we each have the legal authority enforce compliance to deed restrictions.
