Rules and Regulations and Restictive Covenants

altLake Wilson Preserve has an irrevocable set of Restrictive Covenants that were put in place when the sub-division was built. These Restrictive Covenants were designed to ensure that Lake Wilson Preserve is always well maintained, consistent in appearance, looking great and thereby ensuring that the community remains aesthetically pleasing.

You would have been made aware of these Restrictive Covenants when you purchased your property. The rules and regulations set out in this section go hand in hand with the Restrictive Covenants.

Simply because you were not given a copy of the Restrictive Covenants or Rules and Regulations when you bought your property in the community, does not exclude you from complying with the Rules and Regulations and Restrictive Covenants. It is your responsibility as an owner to read and follow the Rules and Regulations and Restrictive Covenants.


As a homeowner, even if you do not live in the community on a full time basis, it is still your responsibility to ensure your guests, tenants, contractors and property management team are fully aware and comply with all of the Rules and Regulations and Restrictive Covenants. If there are any violations, you, the home owner will receive the appropriate violation notice.


Article IX, Section 27 of the Restrictive Covenants clearly outline enforcement and fines that may be levied for repeated non-compliance of the same Rule and Regulation or Restrictive Covenant.


We trust you will take the appropriate action to prevent any incident and we thank you for your co-operation in keeping our community a place that everyone can be proud of.

Please keep in mind that the Board of Directors is not responsible for resolving disputes between neighbours. If you have an issue with your neighbour please speak to your neighbour before attempting to involve the HOA.
