Is Grilling Important To You

Is Grilling Important To You

     What is it about summer that you love?  Is it swimming? Biking? Beach time? Well for many people the end all for summer time fun is getting friends and family together for a good bbq.  If this is you and your idea of a great time is throwing some juicy steaks, delicious kababs, perhaps tasty cheese burgers or hotdogs on the grill then picking the right condo and knowing what restriction they might have in regards to grilling is going to be hugely important for you. 
     Were you aware that the fire code states that the grill needs to be 10 feet away from your condo?  And depending on which condo development you buy into they just might have restrictions specified in their rules and regulations on whether you are able to grill those juicy burgers on your own deck.  A misconception amongst some homebuyers is that the only condos that may not allow bbqing on the decks are the high rises such as Eastwood Commons and Lancaster Condominiums in South Burlington or River Watch and even the high end College and Battery in Burlington but that is just not the case.  Several townhouse style condo developments also have restrictions on grilling on the decks or balconies and are enforcing this rule with the homeowners.  Offhand some of the associations that have and enforce these restrictions are Stonehedge and the Landings in South Burlington and Harborwatch in Burlington.   When this happens most home owners are allowed to put their grills on the grass off of the deck or the development might have a designated grilling area and some might even supply the grills. 
     I don't know about you but for me, grilling is a must and this restriction would most definitely be a consideration in my home buying process.  To be sure you are able to grill this summer and any summer thereafter be sure to consult your Realtor about what restrictions might be in place for each condo development that you are considering.
