Exterior Improvements & Building Permits

Exterior Improvements & Guidelines:
Click on the link below to view or download a PDF version of the Construction & Remodeling Requirements Brochure.
These guidelines apply to all homes in the Leawood Estates Homes Association (LEHA).  
Homeowners and contractors or architects are required to submit plans to the LEHA Architectural Review Committee for approval on ANY exterior changes to the property.  Failure to do so may slow or stop your project until plans have been reviewed and approved.  Plans should be submitted on this site using the Architectural Control Form at the link below.  To get access to this form you will need to login or register on the site by clicking "Login" or "Register" in the upper right hand corner.
Most plans are reviewed in a matter of days; however, 21 days should be allowed.  
Building Permits:
The Cities of Leawood and Overland Park issue construction and building permits for many more codes and guidelines than LEHA. LEHA does not need to be notified of internal construction or remodeling that does not affect the outside appearance of your home. We strongly recommend that homeowners check their City's website before making any changes to the interior or exterior of their home.
