Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions

Covenants, conditions, and restrictions (also called "CC&Rs") are used by many "common interest" developments, including condominiums and co-ops, to regulate the use, appearance, and maintenance of property. CC&Rs, most commonly drafted and enforced through homeowners' associations (HOAs), often restrict what homeowners can do on their property. For example, some CC&Rs do not allow homeowners to hang their laundry out to dry, set lawn maintenance standards, or prohibit home additions or major changes. This section provides practical and legal information on CC&Rs to help you understand what you can and cannot do with a given property.
