Resale Inspections and Requirements (Landscape)

Upon resale, each manor is inspected by the landscape department to ensure that there are no violations of policy before passing to a new owner.

We look for the following items during a landscape resale inspection. If found, removal or correction is required to pass final resale inspection, or funds will be held in escrow to complete the work.
