Residential properties are made up mostly of fee-simple, single-family, detached homes, and these communities are therefore commonly known to be Homeowner's Associations, and/or Property Owner's Associations. In these types of communities, the homeowners have ownership of their individual plot of land. Many residential properties have recreational facilities (such as; tennis courts, pool area, clubhouse, exercise facility, playground area, among others), and these are deemed common areas. In a Residential property, common areas are owned jointly among the homeowners. Another part of a residential community that may be deemed common area are the roadways, but this is dependant on whether or not these are privately owned by the Association. Though it is the responsibility of each homeowner to care for the overall structure and appearance of the home, it is important to understand that the exterior appearance of the home as well as the exterior appearance of the owner's plot of land is subject to restrictions that are set forth by the governing documents.
