Me again!

It seems the majority of homes we are interested in are part of an HOA. Are there restrictions in these communities regarding the installation of pools on private lots, provided there is room to do so? Many of these already seem to have a community pool so I'm not sure if that automatically disqualifies homeowners from putting in their own.

If you have installed your own pool in an HOA, can you give me an idea of how long the process took and approximate costs, if you are willing to share?

Thanks in advance.

Hunter Oaks allows private in-ground pools. If you find a development you like, you might be able to search for the HOA restrictions online...that's how I just researched Hunter Oaks. Usually HOA websites also have e-mails of people you can contact for official responses.

Thank you, UDcc123.

I figured HOA info was strictly limited to current members, not something I would be able to access myself as an outsider. Thanks for the heads-up!

Your realtor should be able to help find the HOA regulations. Most would allow pools so that should be fine. However they may have regulations on the type, size, location in yard, landscaping etc. For example some won't allow above ground pools.

First, I am not a lawyer.

Contract law dictates that a contract must be available for review before entering it. With HOAs this is typically accomplished through registering a Declaration of Protective Covenants and Restrictions (or something along those lines) with the County. Barring any HOA specific disclosure laws (i.e. seller/agent must provide) in NC, the responsibility of review rests on you.

I am willing to bet that they are available on the HOA website or upon request. An HOA that would be unwilling to provide information to prospective buyers should be a huge red flag. I still recommend getting a registered copy from the courthouse as these are the official deed restrictions.
