Most realtors and homeowners aren’t familiar with view ordinances and how restoring a home’s scenic view can increase their home value. Founding Partner Charles Peterson presented on these topics to Keller Williams Palos Verdes on July 28, 2015.
Founding Partner Charles Peterson was called in for advice on an egregious tree mutilation case.
Commenting on the article, “Claims Will Test View Rights,” published by The Indy, a local newspaper, Founding Partner Charles Peterson notes, “It’s surprising that only eight view claims have been filed considering the intensity of the eighteen month debate prior to the enactment of the ordinance.” After much debate, Laguna Beach implemented a view ordinance earlier this year that is now available to help homeowners restore their obstructed views. As of May 2015, eight claims have been filed. Where there was once concern and confusion residents are starting to embrace the new ordinance and magnificent Laguna Beach views are being restored.
In the article, “Ordinances can protect stunning views” published by Palos Verdes Peninsula News, Charles Peterson explains that all four cities on the Palos Verdes Peninsula have view ordinances or rules, which provide homeowners a legal avenue to protect or reclaim their property’s scenic view. For example, Rolling Hills has dual processes, one administered by the city and one governed by the community association.
