Architectural Review Application Step-by-Step Guide


To assist residents in upholding the aesthetic value of their property in The Villages.

The Community Standards Department is committed to upholding the high standards of our community’s residential architectural design, landscaping and aesthetics.  The department has two divisions: Deed Compliance and Architectural Review.

You have chosen to live in a community protected by Restrictive Covenants.  The Declaration of Restrictions was issued to you at the closing on your home.  It was at that time you signed a covenant with the Developer to comply with the Restrictive Covenants.  We urge all homeowners to read their Restrictive Covenants.
