What information should I expect to find in my subdivision's trust indenture?
A well-written indenture will typically include the following components:

  1. A preface giving the legal description of the subdivision property, the parties involved, and the purpose and details of all restrictions.

  2. A description of the use restrictions placed on the properties within the subdivision. These restrictions can include limits on the use, type, and size of buildings, fences, swimming pools, or other structures, the quality of construction materials, building setback lines and provisions for architectural control committees, maintenance funds, boards of trustees, meeting regulations, descriptions of common land, easements, and election information.

  3. Definitions of key terms, specifications for the duration of the indenture and restrictions, their renewal and maintenance, enforcement, and application.
