Modifications – What is a Plat?

A plat is a survey of a piece of land to identify boundaries, easements, flood zones, roadway, and access rights of way.  Most projects require a “Property Plat/Site Plan” to be submitted with an application. To preview plat samples, please click on the appropriate link below.  Each sample shows the configuration of the lot, including the property dimensions, any easements, and building restrictions.  You should have received a legal size document of your plat at the time of your settlement. Please include a copy of the original plat when submitting your modification documentation to the HOA.

What is the purpose of the plat?  All architectural improvements must be drawn on the plat to show the location of your project such as a deck, patio, and screened-in porch, play equipment, etc.  The plat assists the Modifications Subcommittee in understanding the project and its impact on your property and adjoining properties.

If you cannot locate your plat, contact your Settlement Company or a local land surveyor.  In some instances, the Broadlands Homeowners Association office has copies of plats from prior application submissions.

All exterior home improvements require review and approval from the Modifications Subcommittee prior to starting a project.  It is beneficial for you to review the specific guidelines pertaining to the planned modification before getting estimates or meeting with contractors.   This ensures that you are familiar with any restrictions pertaining to the proposed project and can disclose them to the contractor as needed.
