This is the legal document that lays out the guidelines for our planned community. The covenants are recorded in Cobb county records and are legally binding. This means that when you purchase a home in Princeton Mill, you automatically become a member of the HOA. Basically, the covenants are the “rules” of our neighborhood, and are designed to protect overall property values, ensure resident safety, and create harmony in architecture and design. They govern what you can, cannot, or must do with respect to your home. It is also typical for HOA covenants to regulate things such as clotheslines, fences, TV antennas/satellite dishes, and garbage cans. The HOA may impose penalties for any violations, so it’s important to understand the covenants and ask questions to board members whenever you have planned changes or concerns.
