Living in Southern Highlands can be a rewarding experience. As one of Las Vegas’ finest and fastest-growing communities, Southern Highlands strives to maintain the highest standards and asks for a commitment from its owners and residents in keeping the superior quality of life by complying with certain standards and practices.
Southern Highlands’ Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions are often referred to as the CC&R’s. They are provided to each potential buyer prior to purchase, and they set forth certain rules that are monitored by the Association. In summary form, the most common rules are listed below. Please note that this is a brief list of Restrictions and the list below is not exhaustive. You may refer to your CC&R’s and Rules and Regulations for a complete list.
Architectural Considerations: The Association takes significant measures to ensure that the Community appearance is exceptional and constantly maintained. In keeping with that mission, certain actions are required of Owners related to home and landscape changes, upkeep, installations, or modifications. A few of the common issues are addressed below. However, if something is not covered below or you have any questions, please contact the management office for advice and direction.
Dog Barking, Loud Parties, and other Nuisance Behaviors: The Association works to ensure that all owners can peacefully enjoy the Community. Therefore, the Association takes steps to notify owners of violations related to excessive dog barking, loud noises, disruptive parties, and other nuisance behaviors. Everyone is asked to be neighborly at all times.
Gate Screening: Stamped metal mesh that is cut to the exact size of the frame of the gate and matches the color of the gate is pre-approved and does not need architectural approval. Prohibited gate materials include: aluminum, sheet metal, wire, chicken wire, glass, fiberglass, wood, trellis, solid paneling, plywood, bender board, plastic, metal or nylon coated chain-link, or bamboo.
Maintenance of Landscaping: Owners are required to keep clean, well-manicured, weed-free yards. Yards that are stressed from lack of water, landscape beds that are full of even small or dead weeds, and overgrown shrubbery or trees can be cause for a reminder letter from the Association.
Maintenance of Driveways: Owners are required to prevent or clean oil spills or drips and rust stains when visible on a driveway or walkway. Once oil is allowed to soak into the concrete, it is nearly impossible to completely remove. It is advisable to keep a close eye on driveway maintenance and seek out products that have a track record of success in removing unsightly stains.
Maintenance of Home Exterior: Owners are required to keep the appearance of a home’s exterior in good condition. If the fascia board that surrounds an Owner’s garage, windows, or door frame begins to peel, the Association may send a reminder letter asking that the Owner repair the problem. If windows are broken, garage and front doors are dented, and/or the home shows signs of other wear and tear, the Association will seek an Owner’s involvement in the repair.
Maintenance of Walls (Leaching): The water in Las Vegas is quite harsh. When mixed with soil, the water itself can leave a white residue on walls and other structures. This is often referred to as “wall leaching.” The Association closely monitors this issue for two reasons. First, wall leaching is indicative of a watering problem on the opposite side of a wall or structure. Often times a protective coating or barrier has not been completely applied to the wall or the landscape installed after application of the coating exceeded the height of the coating. Second, wall leaching, while unsightly, can also serve to damage the wall or structure over time. When wall leaching is observed in the Association the inspector attempts to locate the source of the water, and a letter is sent to that Owner.
Parking: The Association has various parking regulations based on the nature and ownership of the streets or drives. It is best to refer to the Parking Matrix set forth in the Frequently Asked Questions section. Generally:
Vehicles: Recreational or Commercial: The Association places certain restrictions on an Owner’s right to park or keep a recreational or commercial vehicle within the Association.
Trash Containers: The Association takes steps to ensure that trash is properly stored and managed. Therefore, receptacles many only be placed curbside 12 hours prior to collection and must be removed within the 12 hours following. Trash cans or other receptacles may be kept behind a screened gate or in the garage, but cannot be visible from the street or neighboring properties. If trash is not picked up as scheduled, please call Republic Services at 735-5151.
Animals: Owners are allowed to own two (2) domestic pets unless otherwise licensed by a State or local agency. This restriction does not apply to fish. Pet housing must be hidden from view of all other property, and animal noise should be monitored and limited at all times. The Association follows County pet ordinances regarding restraints, which require that all pets be kept on a leash at all times when outside of a residence.
Short Term Rental / Home Business. Southern Highlands’ residences are for single-family use only, and owners are prohibited from engaging in short-term / vacation rentals of the homes. Any Owner wishing to operate business from a home must obtain all necessary and applicable licenses and they may not engage in any activity that disrupts the neighborhood or increases traffic to the Community regardless of whether or not a license is obtained.
Note: This summary is intended to serve as a brief overview and is not inclusive of every covenant or rule governing the use of the properties within the Community. A complete set of the governing documents may be ordered from the Documents and Forms section of this website.
