Good day. I have a question about an HOA
's ability to take a fence on a common servitude (subdivision boundary) and require the lot owner to maintain it given the fence was erected by the developer and has been maintained by the Association
as a common element for 20 years.
JA: Was the structure crossing the property line built on an easement
or a public right of way
Customer: Not a right of way, the plat
refers to it as a "common servitude". The fence serves as a boundary (separator) of the subdivision and another adjoining property.
JA: Where is the property located?
Customer: 417 Hidden Lake Ct, Baton Rouge, LA
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Is there a charge for this basic inquiry?
JA: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Real Estate
Lawyer. All of this is 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so you can get a refund if you're not happy for any reason.
Customer: What would the "rest" be?
