A new or updated fence will add to both the security and aesthetics of your property. If you’ve been considering one, you might be wondering about your Homeowners Association and what role they’ll play in its planning and construction. It’s an important consideration so read on to learn more. 

Your Fence and the HOA
Replacing a fence is not always a straightforward process. Building your fence may come with a series of concerns, like blocking views, altering the look of your property, safety issues due to poor construction or installation, and more. And oftentimes these concerns can lead to issues with the neighborhood HOA. However, these clashes can be avoidable as long as there is an open channel for communication.

Since HOAs are usually set up by real estate owners in an effort to maintain neighborhood standards that can improve quality of life and preserve property values, your newly constructed fence may be at risk of being pulled down if it violates regulations. It is vital to read the guidelines and consult your HOA before setting out to build one. We don’t want you wasting money on fines and additional costs. 

Here are a few things that are typical to most HOA guidelines:

Preservation of Uniformity
If all the houses in your community have a particular style, your fence must not cause any distortion. Standing out in this regard would be unwelcome.

The Right Height
The height of a fence is a common type of regulation, since a very high one may block highly valued views. Beyond aesthetics, your fence can block a driver’s view at an intersection if your property line runs to this spot, and this is actually a safety hazard.

Preservation of Aesthetics 
The views afforded by a property contributes to its sales value. Your new fence should not interfere with this.  

Consider the Elements
Some HOAs are quite specific about the kind of material and how deep into the ground your fence should be pinned. Consider materials that are less likely to break off with extremes of weather, such as strong winds.
