If it's a question of law, I'd consult a lawyer. If it's about buying
and selling, a realtor. (Keeping in mind that realtors by default are
working for the *seller* and their income depends on making sales
quickly and at a high price!)
Ham radio antennas are a special thing. Most lawyers and realtors
won't know anything about those issues. A lawyer can do research, but
you will pay him/her to learn on the job. So, by all means read all
the serious ham antenna/legal resources you can find like K1VR's.
You can help with the research and carefully read any deed
restrictions, but you may need help to interpret them.
What a good local lawyer will know (and some realtors, too) is the
local political environment. How to work the local Zoning Commission,
which wheels need to be greased, if you need a variance, etc. If
you're new to a community, you need that kind of advice. Relying on a
mailing list or even the advice of other local hams may only be worth
what you pay for it.
