All Owners of lots in the Oak Hill subdivision are subject to the terms of the Homes Association Declaration of Restrictions on file in the office of the Johnson County Register of Deeds in Olathe. Every owner is a member of the Association and eligible to exercise their rights of membership subject to the payment of annual and special assessments levied by the Association in accordance with its Bylaws.
Everyone who owns a lot in Oak Hill agrees, at the time of purchase, to observe and conform to the Declaration of Restrictions. These guidelines are paraphrased from the Declaration of Restrictions which became a part of the deed for each individual property. Each deed or legal property title is subject to the covenants, easements and restrictions of record. The purpose of these restrictions is to protect you so that your investment will increase in value and insure that our area will not decline because of poor planning. We have developed a first class neighborhood, and we want you to be an integral part of this progressive community.
Our motto is:
“A great place to live today; a better place tomorrow”
TRASH PICK-UP AND RECYCLING
