Architectural Approval Requirements
(Single Family Homes ⁄ Townhomes)checklist

As a member of Crystal Tree Homeowner’s Association, you agreed to comply with the Declaration and Bylaws when you purchased your home.  The Architectural Guidelines are intended to preserve the aesthetic integrity of the property.  Changes to the exterior of the property require prior written approval from the Board of Directors.  As examples, elements that require approval include such items as roofs, windows, doors, decks, lighting, driveway, overhead garage doors, service walkway improvements and landscape enhancements, to name a few.

When submitting for approval, you need to include the following items:
  • Full description of the improvement to include the specification
  • Completed application (Available on the CTHOA website)
  • Application fee (Fees vary depending upon the nature of the improvement requested.)  The fee schedule is disclosed on the website.
  • Site plan where appropriate with improvement superimposed upon the survey. (Set-backs must be maintained.)
  • Certificate of insurance from the contractor to include public liability, property damage and workmen’s compensation insurance in appropriate limits but no less than $500,000.  The certificate must name the CTHOA as an additional insured.
The committee cannot review and approve the application until all documents are received. It should be noted that while the committee has 30 days in which to review and respond, it strives to process these documents as quickly as possible for the convenience of the homeowner.  Please contact the Schrank & Associates office with any questions or a request for help in filling out the Architectural Review applications.
