Appearance and Maintenance

Probably the single most controlling covenant found in those adopted by homeowners’ associations is that which addresses the appearance and maintenance of private properties.

It is important to note that, even in the absence of CC&Rs, many of these same issues are regulated by local zoning or blight ordinances. However, because covenants are voluntary in nature (a purchaser agrees to abide by the covenants as a condition of purchasing the property), they can impose more strict obligations upon homeowners than those required under zoning ordinances.
