Architectural Review Information

See the ARC Approval Request Form below (under 'File Attachments').

All homes in Clover Hill are subject to restrictive architectural covenants.  These covenants are regulations pertaining to every property and home within Clover Hill and are on file at the county courthouse & copies are at the bottom of this page.  Covenants for the individual subdivisions (Clover Hill I, II East, II West and III) differ, so it is important for homeowners to have a copy of the covenants affecting their own property.  

All exterior changes to homes and properties REQUIRE approval from the Architectural Review Committee (ARC).  All structural changes to the exterior of your home.  All new structures built on your lot: sheds, additions, fences, decks, patios, pools, walls, driveway extensions, etc. are all examples of what needs to be approved.

The ARC's authority to enforce the covenants is clearly stated in all the Clover Hill Covenants.  In January 2001, Ausherman Homes transferred to CHCA "all rights, responsibilities and obligations" pertaining to architectural controls.

Any structures built without ARC approval are subject to removal at the owner's expense.  Owner may also be responsible for legal costs associated with compliance enforcement.
