1.2B Changes by Previous Owner's - Purchases of a previously-occupied property sometimes are surprised and disturbed when they receive notice that the previous owner's made an unapproved alteration or addition, and they are now in violation of the Covenants. Current owners are responsible for any existing violations, regardless of previous ownership.
1.2C Covenants Protect Neighbors - All property owners and tenants are subject to the Covenants and have agreed to comply with them. In turn, they rely on their neighbors' promises that they too will comply. Most problems can be resolved and unnecessary complications avoided by a thorough understanding of the Covenants and Standards. Compliance with the Covenants and Standards by all neighbors will permit Woodlands property owners and residents to enjoy living and raising their families in a pleasing environment and an attractive community with sustained property values.
