Building designs in Palos Verdes Estates and the Miraleste area of Rancho Palos Verdes are controlled by the Palos Verdes Homes Association and Art Jury. They recommend that buyers of property request sellers to obtain a letter of "completion and compliance" as a condition of purchase. This letter can only be requested by the property owner as it involves an on-site inspection and the sellers' authorization.
When such inspections are done, a member of the staff of the Homes Association compared the actual property with the approved plans that are on-file at the Association's office in Malaga Cove. When discrepancies are discovered, a letter is sent to the seller with discrepancies identified.
When there are no discrepancies, a letter of completion and compliance is provided.
