You submitted this inquiry in Trulia Voices where agents respond to home buyers and sellers but the best course would be to contact Trulia via their Help Center. Go to the upper right hand corner of the desktop page and highlight over your account, a drop down will appear and the link to the Help Center will be there. The photos generally disappear after a while or you can go to the home and click "Edit Home Facts", it will verify that you are the owner and then you'll be able to take down the photos.

Upsides: no yard work. Has natural gas so heating costs are low. 4 restaurants, lots of sidewalks to move around on. Community open spaces. Downsides: community fees high at approximately $240/month for condo, which gets you yard work, club house, and pool. lots of traffic noise if you are near a street, which is just about every house, because none have much yard to separate the house from the street. The nearby turkey farm makes the entire community smell awful about 30% of the time. The nearby cow farm has a similar problem, but that should go away in about 2 years for more housing. I have it on good authority that the turkey farm will be there at least another 10 years. There is no bike or walking trail connecting the community to Columbia. Parents let kids play in the alleys between houses, so when a baseball gets hit with a bat, it is stopped by someones house or car. Parents won't send there kids to the community spaces, if they are younger because it is some distance from some houses.... more
This is most definitely a question for an attorney as it does materially affect the value of the property. That said most developer contracts I have seen have a huge loop whole for the developer in cases of the city or county making them change the plans because of code. Also it may all boil down to whether or not the deck was part of the original contract or if it was added later during the selection process. Most likely though if they can not in fact build the deck because of the county then the one thing that is certain is that the home will not have a deck. Unfortunately this happens sometimes with new construction and it is not always the developers fault.... more
