Frequently Asked Questions

If a subdivision is held and owned by Lancia then any fence, swingset, pool, structure approval needs to be sent into the Lancia office to the Architectural Committee. Fences must start at the back rear corners of the home and pond lots have their own requirements. When a subdivision is almost completed it is turned over to the homeowners in a homeowners meeting and an Architectural committee is formed from homeowners. Covenants are located under Communities on our website.
If it is a Lancia exclusive subdivsion still under the Lancia Homes office please email any architectural questions or submissions-plan sheet from fence/pool/playset company to:

You can buy a new home with these 2 USDA government programs thru Pathfinders. The programs have been around for many, many years and they are not Special Programs thru any specific builder.

• Single Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program; What does this program do? 

You can buy a new home with these programs. The Guaranteed Loan program assists approved lenders in providing low- and moderate-income households the opportunity to own adequate, modest, decent, safe and sanitary dwellings as their primary residence in eligible rural areas. Eligible applicants may build, rehabilitate, improve or relocate a dwelling in an eligible rural area. The program provides a 90% loan note guarantee to approved lenders in order to reduce the risk of extending 100% loans to eligible rural homebuyers.  More info at:

• Single Family Housing 502 Direct Home Loans; What does this program do? 

Also known as the Section 502 Direct Loan Program, this program assists low- and very-low-income applicants obtain decent, safe and sanitary housing in eligible rural areas by providing payment assistance to increase an applicant’s repayment ability. Payment assistance is a type of subsidy that reduces the mortgage payment for a short time. The amount of assistance is determined by the adjusted family income.  A number of factors are considered when determining an applicant’s eligibility for Single Family Direct Home Loans. At a minimum, applicants interested in obtaining a direct loan must have an adjusted income that is at or below the applicable low-income limit for the area where they wish to buy a house and they must demonstrate a willingness and ability to repay debt.

Your Lancia home is equipped with fans in all the baths to circulate moist air. Lancia installs a fan in the Main Bath that runs continuously to refresh the air. A healthy home has a return air exchange, but is also built tight to prevent drafts. We are also one of the few builders that have cold air return vents in the Bedrooms, many builders eliminate this to save money.

Lancia Homes believes in not hiding any costs or expenses. When you sign a building construction agreement, we will outline the exact costs and allowances (if any).
If you add any options while the home is under construction, we will create a change work order that spells out the additional costs. Both the homeowner and Lancia sign the work order. Surprises are fun for birthdays, not home building.  See our stages of building!
