As noted, Declarations, some with slightly different restrictions, apply to each phase. Perspective and current owners must determine which phase their property of interest is in to find the Declaration that applies. This can be done through a two-step process online, or you can check your deed.
The Online Process
Click the following link to the City of Virginia Beach Treasurer’s Office real estate search page: http://cvb.manatron.com/Tabs/PropertySearch.aspx
Read the text then click the “I Agree” button.
Enter the property owner’s last name in the search box and click the search button.
(Alternatively, you can click on the left hand box and change the search criteria to “Situs Address.” Then:
Enter the street name without house number – 4th may also be fourth or,
Enter only the house number – example: 2401, or,
Enter the house number and street name – do not add Drive, Avenue, Lane, etc., to the street name)
Click the search button.
A page will appear with a list of names or addresses.
Find the property of interest to you.
Click on the Parcel Number associated with that property.
A new page will appear. Look for the title “Legal Description” at the center of the page. Below that title is the legal description of the property you are interested in.
Copy the phase, part (if given), block (if given), and lot number of the property.
Go to the Middle Plantation Civic League website. Click https://www.middleplantation.org/
Click on the tab labelled, “Architectural Review.”
Click on the link entitled, “Declarations of Restrictions.”
Find the legal description of the property that you copied from the City of Virginia Beach website.
Click on the name of the phase, part, block applicable to the property you are interested in.
Congratulations. You’ve found the document that applies.
