In addition to city or county zoning laws and construction codes, there are other potential restrictions that may affect your use of a property. Historic preservation councils, architectural review boards and other neighborhood groups may set covenants on properties. Make sure you’re aware of any aesthetic or other standards those types of groups might require.
