APPENDIX TO BYLAWS
ON DOUGLAS MANOR PROPERTIES
[NOTE: The deed restrictions vary in form, but not in substance, among the individual properties. The following text includes a complete list of the deed restrictions. Many have been rendered moot by the passage of time or by New York City statutes. Those considered to be most pertinent today are printed in bold type. Notes are enclosed in square brackets like those enclosing this note; bold type is also used in such notes for emphasis.]

Each lot in Douglas Manor is subject to a deed tax of One Dollar ($1.00) per lot per year, payable on the first day in April each year. Deed taxes shall become a lien against the property on which they are levied, on the day they become due and payable, and shall remain liens until paid.
[NOTE: In two separate decisions, on 11/26/90 and 5/15/95, the New York State Supreme Court, Appellate Division, has ruled that the Douglas Manor Association is entitled to collect annual dues, as established by the membership of the Association, to support the work of the Association. The Association levies dues only against properties on which a residence has been built, and the deed taxes required by the covenant are considered to be covered by the dues. The Association does levy and collect deed taxes for unimproved properties.]
