Things buyers should know

Our lake is divided into 10 plats. Each plat has a legal covenant and before buying you should review the covenants for your plat. They can be accessed from the menu on the left or by clicking here. These legal covenants are registered with Oceana County.

The following are highlights of the covenants which are enforced by the Board of Directors:

Item 1. UPPER SILVER LAKE CORPORATION desires to impose certain protective covenants, restrictions, and conditions on said plat for the purpose of insuring the use of the entire plat for single family residential purposes only, and for the purpose of preserving and improving the attractive features of the property in the community, and securing to each lot owner the full benefit and enjoyment of his home, with no greater restrictions upon the free and undisturbed use of his property than is necessary to insure the same advantages to other lot owners.

Item 3. No part of any of the premises above described, may or shall be used for other than single family private residential purposes.

Item 7. No lot shall be used for any commercial, industrial, or business enterprise, whatsoever, nor for the storing of any equipment or materials used in commercial, industrial or business enterprises.

Item 12. No noxious or offensive trade or activity shall be carried on upon any lot, nor shall anything be done which may be or become an annoyance or nuisance to the neighborhood.

Item 13. The owners of all lots in said plat, and owners of land in the area purchased from Upper Silver Lake Corporation and Golden Lake Corporation, together with their families and guests may use, at their own risk, for recreational purposes all Outlots in the Upper Silver Lake Plats. The general public is specifically excluded from these lots for any purpose whatsoever.
