Community Standards & Inspections

Community Guidelines

Protective covenants have been established to guide, preserve and maintain the overall aesthetic and to establish a harmonious community. These covenants protect our common goals of maintaining our community at its best and it is important all South Riding residents are aware of the rights and responsibilities imparted by the covenants.


All homes are routinely inspected for compliance with the Design and Maintenance Standards to preserve property values and continue our vision to keep South Riding as one of the most architecturally pleasing and best-maintained communities in the area.

The following sections of the community will receive a routine home inspection this year. If you are not certain what section you live in please click here.

The Community Standards Advisors are currently inspecting sections 20 and 1C. The next sections to be inspected are 21, 22, and 85.

1A, 1B1, 1B2, 1C, 2, 3, 3A2, 3A3, 3A4, 3A5, 4B, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, 18, 20, 21, 22, 23, 33, 38, 49, 50, 51, 54, 58, 61, 63, 66, 67, 70, 71, 74, 75, 77, 80, 92, 93, DEAN 1, DEAN 2

Register a Concern

Please use the form below to submit your concern to our office. If it is something within our authority we will do our best to take steps to remedy the matter. Compliance is our ultimate goal, however we are limited and restricted in what we have the authority to enforce and unfortunately common courtesy is difficult to enforce.
