The Red Oak Ranch Deed Restrictions set out the rights and obligations of the Property Owners’ Association and creates a framework for the administrative and financial management of the community. It also is the basis for the rules and standards that have been put in place to enhance property values and create a harmonious relationship between property owners.
Through its management company, the Association strives to enforce the “Use Restrictions” section of the Deed Restrictions by completing a monthly visual inspection of all lots. Property Owners who may be in violation of a specific Use Restriction will be notified and given an appropriate amount of time to remedy the violation. This is summarized further in the Deed Restriction Guide below.
The Architectural Control Committee (ACC) is charged with ensuring that all property improvement projects are attractive and that they do not adversely affect the owners of neighboring lots. The Association has developed a Property Owners’ Guide which outlines the ACC's current requirements for applications for property improvement projects. The guide also clarifies, defines, and standardizes the ACC’s position on the various deed restrictions that pertain to property improvements to ensure that the goals of the deed restrictions are met.
In general, any permanent improvement to a property requires ACC approval. Examples include houses, house additions/modifications, outbuildings, decks, driveways/culverts, fences, gates, columns, pergolas, gazebos, ponds, berms, ditches, lot grading, pools, and tennis courts. The display of signs also requires ACC approval.
Work that does not require ACC approval includes the following: clearing vegetation, marking property, digging a well for secondary water and maintenance of existing buildings/structures. Repainting the exterior of any existing building/structure is generally considered maintenance unless there is a change in the color from original or subsequent ACC approved color - a noticeable change in color requires new ACC approval.
The ACC reviews applications as submitted – please note that the Association recommends submitting your application 30 days prior to the start of your project.
