It is important to understand The Grange Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions as they describe the rights and obligations of each owner and those of the association itself.

The Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions outline the boundaries of each unit or lot and those of the development’s common area. They also describe the maintenance responsibilities of each owner and those assumed by the GHOA, the operating costs to the owners and how they will be collected and the protections granted to mortgage holders.

Additionally, they lay out The Granges powers of enforcement, procedures to resolve disputes and the restrictions on owner usage.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Restrictive Covenant?

How do I know which Restrictive Covenant applies to my property?

There are two ways you can figure out which Restrictive Covenant applies to your property:

  1. Looking for your Restrictive Covenant that applies to your property on your Land Titles Certificate.
    1. Under the section Encumbrances, Liens & Interests look for the number that will match the Stages of the Restrictive Covenant located on the Restrictive Covenant page under Properties on this website.
      • For example, if you open this  Land Title Document you will see an example of an actual Land Title Certificate.  The registration number on the Land Titles Document is circled in red. In this case, the Restrictive Covenant is 022 373 348-Stage RF5(Pheasant Pointe2004).  Try finding it on the Restrictive Covenant page.
  2. Utilize the stages of development:
    1. Open the Restrictive Covenant Address and Stage Description document on the Restrictive Covenant page under Properties on this website.
    2. Look for your address and stage of development.  For example, 1086 Grantham Drive is under Stage 22.
    3. Then look for the stages of the Restrictive Covenant, the number attached to the stage is what will be in your Land Titles Certificate.  For the above address, it would be 042051330-Stage 22.
