Q.

How are Deed Restrictions enforced?

A.

The Deed Restrictions are legal covenants between homeowners. Each homeowner has the right to enforce compliance to the deed restrictions from other fellow homeowners.

 

The Northdale Civic Association can assist you in enforcing these deed restrictions upon the receipt of a written complaint.

Q.

What should I do if I get a letter from the Deed Restriction Committee?

A.

Read the letter carefully.  You may not know you violated a deed restriction.  Usually it is something quite simple and can easily be rectified.

 

If you are unsure of the issue the letter is addressing, please feel free to use the information in the letter to contact a member of the Deed Restriction Committee.

Q.

How do I report a deed restriction violation in my area?

A.

Residents can request an investigation of deed restriction violations. Complaints (in most neighborhoods) do not necessarily need to be in writing. The NCA conducts periodic neighborhood reviews and will act on their findings when needed. If you wish to file a complaint, use the form we provide on our website at www.northdale.org and send it to NCA Deed Restrictions, 3853 Northdale Blvd #374, Tampa, FL 33624. We will need to know who you are, and how to reach you. We will then investigate the complaint. Forms are also available at District 1 Community Resource Deputy Office, 15610 Premier Drive.

 

When a violation occurs a letter will be sent to the violating homeowner with a request to correct the problem. After a reasonable amount of time passes, and the problem persists, the coordinator may contact you with the available options. Some of these options could include legal action against the violating homeowner.

Q.

What happened to the reclaimed water project for Northdale?

A.

The CIT, Community Investment Tax, allocation for Northdale would have only paid for the main lines to each subdivision. Each homeowner would have been charged $2,600.00 for hookup to the system. None of the subdivisions in Northdale expressed enough interest at that price. The County abandoned the project for lack of support.
