What are restrictive covenants?
Restrictive covenants are legally enforceable promises made when you purchased your home. Wells Branch MUD enforces covenants to protect the value of your home.
**What are the most common violations?
Lawn maintenance – lawns need to be free of weeds and have a manicured appearance.
Fence repair – Missing and broken slats, non-functioning gates or leaning fences need to be repaired.
Debris in view of the street – Construction materials, camping chairs, BBQ pits and small storage containers.
Boats, flatbed trailers, RV’s or derelict vehicles – Inoperable or listed vehicles are not allowed on the street, driveway or on your lawn.
What is the process for enforcing the Wells Branch covenants?
If you receive a yellow courtesy reminder for any covenant violation, you have 10 days to correct the violation. If the violation has not been corrected within 10 days, you will receive a violation letter. You will receive another 10 days to correct the violation. If the violation still remains, after your aditional 10 days, then we will forward the violation to the District Attorney.
*We understand there are special circumstances and if you require additional time to make repairs, etc, please contact us for an extension.
Repairs to your home vs. improvements
As a basic rule, if you are replacing siding, roofing materials, fencing, etc with the same materials there is no need for architectural approval. You will need Architectural Control Committee (ACC) approval if you are planning to make substantial changes to the appearance of your property. Some examples are; fence placement with a different material, patios, decks, pools or alterations of garages into living areas. Information on what the ACC does and how to contact them can be found here.
If you are unsure if your project needs ACC approval, please feel free to send the description to the ACC application site for more guidance.
