Buying a home in Little Holmby with Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&R’S) . Many new home buyers interested in living in the area are unaware that there are CC&Rs for some of the homes.
First,the original developer of the neighborhood,the Janss Investment Corp along with The HWPOA (Holmby Westwood Property Owners Association, established rules and guidelines for the homes in the community.
Second, the deeds of homes notate the CCR’s rules.
Third, in 1976/1977 homeowners were asked to renew and modify the restrictions upon the original CCR expiration . Some homes elected to renew and others did not. Thus, some homes in the Little Holmby neighborhood are under CC&R’s and others are not.
Furthermore, as a realtor, I often find interested buyers in Little Holmby real estate who may not aware of this. Additionally, current homeowners who wish to remodel may need the committee to review what they plan to do. Many other realtors are unaware of the rules.
Lastly, in 2016 the neighborhood rejected the establishment of a HPOZ (*see other articles I have written and noted link below). Some neighbors found the proposed HPOZ too restrictive while others favored it. As of writing this article in 2019, the Architectural Committee does review homes that it determines are under CCR’s.
