Thinking about how your construction activities affect your neighbor is particularly important when building a new home, or during renovation and remodeling projects. It is the owner’s responsibility to direct all contractors and vendors to comply with BSAC approvals and covenants. The BSOA can only enforce covenant compliance with property owners. If your contractor is behaving badly you may be fined!

Every project that affects the exterior aesthetic of a home, or lot must be approved by the BSAC and must begin with a completed Project Application and Checklist. The sample submittals were created to help you the owner, your architects, and other project advisors understand what an application submittal looks like.

The standards and procedures established by the BSAC are intended to enhance the overall aesthetics of the BSOA’s Jurisdiction. The BSOA and the BSAC shall not bear any responsibility for ensuring the structural integrity or soundness of approved construction or modifications, compliance with building codes and other governmental requirements, and/or the appropriateness of soils, drainage, and general site work. The BSOA and the BSAC shall not be held liable for any injury, damages, or loss arising out of the manner or quality of approved construction on or modifications to an Owner’s Property. In all matters the BSAC and its members shall be defended and indemnified by the BSOA. In addition, the BSAC relies on information submitted by an owner and does not independently verify the accuracy of that information; therefore, the BSAC is not liable for decisions made when it is determined that the basis of those decisions was on inaccurate information submitted by the owner.
It is the owners sole responsibility to determine if their project requires approvals or permits from other governmental regulatory agencies or sub-associations. See Other Approvals for more information.

Covenants are the written rules, limitations and restrictions on use, applicable to all owners of homes in a subdivision or condominium complex. Covenants may limit size and placement of homes, exterior colors, pets, use of barbecues and other conduct to protect the quiet enjoyment of the various residents. Covenants are enforced by the Association, or by individual owners who can take enforcement action against owners who violate the covenants. Covenants are permanent, or “run with the land”, so future owners are bound to the same rules.
BSOA jurisdiction is geographically defined by a variety of governing documents including, but not limited to covenants and includes subdivisions as well as the independent condominium associations that operate within the subdivision. There are also several tracts of land that are part of the BSOA’s jurisdiction that are not part of a subdivision. View covenants here.
