Information about Deed Restrictions

ANA is proud to offer the ability to search and download deed restrictions at no cost to all paying ANA members. As many residents already know, deed restrictions are legally binding restrictions placed within a deed that control the use of property within lots and subdivisions. If you are planning on making modifications to your home, we strongly recommend you first check the deed restriction for your subdivision. Using our tool, locating the deed restriction is as simple as logging in, typing in your address, and clicking a button!

In order to view the tool, please log-in using your ANA credentials. If you are a resident of Allandale interested in searching for Deed Restrictions, please feel free to learn more about the ANA here, or become a member here!


Q: I don’t see a deed restriction link associated with my address, why is that?
ANA is currently working on digitizing deed restrictions so many of them are not on the application just yet. If you want to help out with this process please reach out to the ANA board [Email address: allandale.neighborhood #AT# - replace #AT# with @ ]!

Q: When should I use this tool?
Whenever you want to make changes to your home, determine the legal restrictions on the development of homes within our neighborhood, and other related applications.

Q: Do I have to know which address I’m looking for in order to find the deed restriction?
No! This tool includes a color-coded map UI which allows for dynamic, visual search without requiring you to input an address. You can also search by the subdivision name!

Q: How do I search for my deed restriction?

  1. Click on addresses on the map
  2. Type in an address or a part of an address into the search bar.
    • If nothing is being returned, check your search query for punctuation! When searching for “123 Happyvale Dr.”, please type “123 Happyvale Dr” with no spaces afterward or “123 Happyvale Drive” instead.
  3. Press enter once you have completed your search.

Filters can be easily reset by refreshing the page. On most browsers, this can be done by clicking on the circular arrow to the left or the right of the URL. To remove specific filters simply hover over the relevant filter and select the eraser icon.

Q: I am having issues with the dashboard being slow, how can I fix this?
