HISTORIC DEED RESTRICTIONS

Declarations and Covenants for properties in Fairway Estates were recorded in the Pinellas County Courthouse.  Between 1953 and 1964, as each new Addition was built, a unique set of declarations was recorded for each Addition.  All sets of the Declarations stated that the FECA Directors shall have the authority to guide the development of the Subdivision as planned and restricted in the recorded Deed Restrictions.

The original phase and 1st Addition deed restrictions expired in 1985 per the clause contained within them.  Deed Restrictions for the 2nd through 9th additions were intended to run for 25 years initially, renewing in 10 year intervals thereafter but in 1963 the Marketable Record Title Act was passed and had unintended consequences.  For Fairway Estates, the Act extinguished our remaining Deed Restrictions after 30 years for most property owners.    You may want to research this act for more details but be advised the information being provided here is a historical guide only and not intended to be a legal opinion or advice.     Your board worked with legal council to research further revitalization of Deed Restrictions and in February 2017 opted to suspend any further efforts to pursue revitalization.    Please direct all inquiries to our President, President@FairwayEstates.org

As a result of the decision regarding the Deed Restrictions, the Board of Directors will be directing all owners with concerns that might have been previously covered by Deed Restrictions directly to the City of Dunedin Code of Ordinances for guidance and they can report any potential violations to the City of Dunedin Code Enforcement personnel.  Current Contacts for this can be found under the Code Enforcement Division website.
