What are CCRs
The CCRs of your neighborhood are important because they dictate what you can and cannot do in your neighborhood. The Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions, commonly known as the CC&Rs, is a legal document filed with the county recorder’s office and made a part of the official real estate records that run with the land that is part of the community.
The CC&Rs outline the processes and procedures community members must follow, although the HOA might also have other requirements.
Below is a list of some items you may find on the CC&Rs. There are countless options and possibilities of items that can be included, so read your document carefully.
- Restrict the height of your fence
- Require a defensible space for fire protection
- Prohibit political signs
- No livestock
- No temporary house trailers or tents
- No billboards
- No mobile homes
- No Dome-shaped homes
- Buildings shall not exceed two stories
- Each owner has an equal right to the use of the common wall
- Each unit shall be kept neat and orderly.
Simply put, the CC&Rs provide a roadmap to homeowners of what is expected and permitted in their neighborhoods.
