Building lines or setback lines may be evidenced in the real estate records by covenants, conditions and restrictions, by a map or plat, or by a city ordinance. City setback lines are normally not separately excepted unless also shown in the public records. An exception to restrictions in a Declaration or map will adequately except to building lines established in that instrument.
