What are my rights with my land and building a new home?

Question Details: My husband and I purchased a piece of land. We were not notified that the land had restrictions on it. We are trying to place our home on the land. Now the POA is saying that we have to fill out a building permit, so the board of directors can approve or disapprove it. Is this legal? Can they tell us that we can not put our home on the land we purchased?
