About Living In LECC (**Important to read BEFORE purchasing or renting a home)

Lake Erie Country Club Ltd. was created by Letters Patent in 1918. All of the land encompassed by Registered Plan 1038 for The Town of Amherstburg (formerly the Township of Malden), County of Essex, was originally owned by our parent company Lake Erie Fish Company Ltd. LEFC Ltd. then went on to subdivide the area into two main areas, the private property along Lakeside Drive and the common area known as Lake Erie Country Club Ltd.

Only owners of property are members in LECC Ltd. and the relationship of the property on the south of Lakeside Drive and LECC Ltd. was spelled out in those original documents and restrictive covenant. There is a "Restrictive Covenant" on all properties along Lakeside Drive. The object of the corporation was to promote, organize, conduct, and manage a Golf, Country and Social Club and to lay out golf links, tennis courts, ball grounds and parks and to erect a clubhouse and other necessary buildings thereon. Residential lots within these lands were sold to various owners and continue to be sold to subsequent owners on the basis that they are buying a lot in a desirable and regulated local community.

A private road (Lake Erie Country Club Drive) services each lot within the Lake Erie Country Club Subdivision. This road has at all times, since its inception, been maintained by Lake Erie Country Club Ltd. Since 1918 all owners of the lots within Lake Erie Country Club have been required to contribute to the cost of maintaining the club’s private access road and common area. Court action by Lake Erie Country Club Ltd. in May 2001 has reaffirmed this requirement. As a result of that action Lake Erie Country Club Ltd. is now operating under the terms of the new updated guidelines spelled out in the new Restrictive Covenant Schedule "C"
