The Greenville County Code of Ordinances, as well as those of the various municipalities in the county, limit the location and time that temporary lead-in signs may be used to advertise real estate for sale.

Under the rules, directional signs may not:

  • be placed in the right-of-way or within 15 feet of the right-of-way
  • create a visual obstruction for motorists
  • be fastened to trees or utility poles in the right-of-way
  • be placed on private property without the property owner’s permission

Signs may be set out after 7 p.m. on Friday and must be removed by 7 a.m. on Monday. Their size may not exceed 3 feet in height and 2 feet by 2 feet of surface area.
