Shrubbery and Trees
Question: What do I do when my view is impacted by shrubbery or trees?
Answer: Read your covenants, attempt to solve the problem yourself, send a message to MHACC as outlined above taking into consideration the following:
(1) MHACC only as jurisdiction over adjoining property (any point touching your property including one diagonal where 4 corners touch). Properties across streets are not considered adjoining.
(2) You get the view you had when you built the residence or moved in. It is best to have dated pictures.
(3) Views are not covered by City or other codes.
(4) The MHACC can issue a letter stating that the offending property owner is in violation of covenants but cannot initiate legal action. However, court rulings appear to have followed MHACC findings.
