What is Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs)?

Covenants, conditions, and restrictions (CC&Rs) are legal documents that outline the rules and regulations for a particular piece of property or a community. CC&Rs are commonly used in condominiums, homeowners associations, and planned communities, and they can cover a wide range of issues, such as the appearance of the property, the use of common areas, and the conduct of residents. CC&Rs are typically enforceable by a homeowners association or a similar entity, and they can be enforced through fines or legal action.
