We encourage you to become familiar with all Governing Documents, as they are accepted by property owners upon purchase of the property and are an obligation of property ownership and/or residency. Please find your governing documents below:
The Landings Rules and Regulations
- The General Declaration of Covenants and Restrictions allows The Landings Association’s Board of Directors to establish reasonable Rules and Regulations with respect to the use of common property and directs an Architectural Review Committee to establish Guidelines for new home construction and exterior alterations on private property. These Covenants and Restrictions are accepted by property owners upon purchase of the property and are an obligation of property ownership and/or residency.
- The Covenants and Restrictions provide for the preservation of the values and amenities within the community and for the maintenance of common areas and other common facilities. The Landings Association, Inc. maintains and administers the community properties and facilities and enforces the covenants and restrictions and collects and disburses the assessments and other fees that have been created.
- The Bylaws provide for the self-governance of The Landings Association, Inc., in accordance with the Articles of Incorporation filed with the Georgia Secretary of State and the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions for The Landings Association.
Private Property Maintenance Standards
- The purpose of the Private Property Maintenance Standards is to focus on the continued upkeep and maintenance of private property within The Landings. The Covenants require that private property, and all improvements and alterations, be kept in good condition so that it does not have a detrimental or adverse effect on other properties in the community. The Private Property Maintenance Standards were developed, in part, to ensure that properties are kept in good repair, acceptable in appearance, and meet minimum acceptable standards. They also provide a reminder to homeowners of their responsibilities, and agreement to adhere to the Covenants and Rules and Regulations.
- The purpose of these Guidelines is to preserve and enhance the architectural and environmental standards of The Landings and to ensure that homeowners and residents of The Landings enjoy an attractive living environment. The Guidelines are intended to create an environment that contributes to the community’s aesthetic appeal and enhances property values. To view the Architectural Guidelines, click here.
**Please understand that you must submit a permit to the Community Development Department if you plan on doing any exterior work.
