News items of national interest regarding Condominium and Homeowner associations, compiled by the Community Associations Network
Here’s a recent Post and Courier article concerning Battery Gaillard, a West Ashley subdivision. Several doctors in the neighborhood formed an LLC and purchased a lot on which they intend to build a private swimming pool and tennis courts for their exclusive use. The lot is not adjacent to any of the doctors’ property, which brings up zoning and CC&Rs issues. Neighbors are also raising eyebrows at the commercial ownership of the lot. Both sides have engaged counsel for what may prove to be a very interesting lawsuit.
It is interesting to note that a South Carolina statute requires local planning agencies to inquire as to the existence of restrictive covenants before issuing a permit. S.C. Code Ann. § 6-29-1145.
