My Howeowner's association is struggling to define the term "Front Wall Line". I believe it is a common sense term that can be found in many homeowner's association rules. Can anyone give me their most complete defination of "Front Wall Line". Also, if you could let me know how and where you I could find this definition in writing somewhere that would be great.

William, for a building the front wall line would be a vertical plane across the front of the building and extending outward beyond the sides to the property line. Often one can not have the front wall line of a building within 25' of the front property line. Another example is limiting a rear side fence to XX feet from the front wall line. Perhaps you can go to google.com and search for further definition.

Thanks Roger. I have spend hours on google and only come up with other homeowner's association rules. Unfrotuneately, this is also a term used for the game of sqaush, so those types of pages dominate the search results. Your answer is perfectly consistant with my interpretation. This issue is my neighbor has installed a hedge row (of a plant that I find to be hideous) within 2 feet of our property line. They are not mainging the grass/weeds directly under the plants and on our side of the line. My association rules do not address distance from propertly line in anyway, so the only way I have to fight this is the "front wall line rule".

If you can believe this the developer is trying to say that the "front wall line" is the easment line 10 feet from the street. This is a developer giving me this answer. The architectural review committee is trying to "define" or should I say redefine terms so as not to have to deale with this.

They have already tried to say this row of shurbs that goes from the top of the property to the back (well over 200 feet) is not a "hedgerow".

Of course, our orginal request to this neighbor was only to move the things 2 feet further back so he could maintain them w/o coming on our property or affecting what we may want to do in the same area on our side of the property. This was even though we hate the plants - we did not ask him to take them out.

Roger:

I am not the brightest person around, I am assuming the front wall line refers to the actual house and not the garage? In our neighborhood most of the garages are attached but are set out in front of the actual house.

Thanks!
