Covenant Condition Restriction (CC&R's)

Covenant condition restriction is an agreement, usually included in the deed to a property, restricting the manner in which the property can be used. For example, a deed for a residential property may contain a covenant that the owner won’t permit “noxious uses” on the property, or any of a lengthy list of particular offenses such as stables, factories and so forth.

The covenant condition restriction establishes the general rules and guidelines that homeowners agree to abide by. Contact a Real Estate Lawyer if you have a question about a covenant condition restriction.

Developers may record a document called “covenants and conditions and restrictions” ( CC&R’s) to control the nature and character of a property development for the benefit of future owners. For example, a covenant or condition may require a property owner to maintain the property according to aesthetic guidelines, such as how high you can build fences or what colors you can paint your house.
