My house encroaches the building line. The MUD District, which enforces the deed restrictions will not approve it. What next?

Spring, TX |

I spoke to the escrow officer at the title company about issuing the T-19.1 endorsement to a potential buyer so I can sell my house. I was told that this would not fix the problem, that I would need a signed letter of approval from the MUD board. Well, the MUD board will not approve it, so now what do I do?

  1. There should be a legal process for seeking a special exception from the setback requirement; especially if the violation was innocent. Normally the permitting agency requires a site plan prior to construction and if it showed the encroachment but was approved by the permitting agency, you may have recourse there as well.
