California Court Rules on When Statute of Limitations Period Commences for Obstruction of View Claims

UNPUBLISHED California Appellate Court decision (August 14, 2017). This case involved a dispute between neighboring homeowners over the maintenance of landscaping that obstructed the view from one of the owner’s property. The disputing parties both lived in a common interest community that was governed by CC&Rs that contained view restrictions. The restrictions in question provided that no landscape materials shall be “allowed to grow upon any of the lots in such a manner as to substantially impair the view from adjacent lots.” The restrictions also required that all landscaping be “maintained in a neat and orderly condition at all times after installation.”
