If your community has a Homeowners Association (HOA), you are more than likely bound to the written guidelines they’ve established for your area. These guidelines often cover items such as how many guests you can have at the community pool, where cars can be parked, the size of outdoor buildings on your property, etc. Love it or hate it, the HOA has a lot more to say about what can happen on your property than you expect. Your relationship with the association can be annoying, reassuring and often risky.
While it may be sad, it is true. The Homeowners Association are often hung up on using outdated methods to follow through with their guidelines, such as wooden structures. But if their rules are set in stone when it comes to prohibiting steel construction, it’s time to work on changing them. This is where things get tricky. Approval on any project will be based on the personal preferences of the board members. So, it’s important that you take plenty of evidence that a steel building will be very attractive and add to the overall value of your property. With one of their biggest concerns being the appearance of their community, it’s crucial that you can prove how these structures can enhance your property.
There are several steps you can take to ensure you get approved by the HOA; however, one of the early steps would be getting a permit from your city or your county. While you can still wait for your HOA approval, moving forward with your building plans after pulling a permit shows that you’ve planned for your unit to meet all requirements and codes. And before you start to worry, it isn’t costly! By having this done, you can continue to move forward with your project with no delays after it’s been signed off on.
