Title: CCRs
Post by: AG4WX on December 20, 2002, 11:43:15 AM
I'm sure this has been addressed before, but what's the best way to investigate CCRs when moving into a new home??

I know a lot of folks who had assumed that older neighborhoods didn't have such restrictions, however a co-worker moved into a house out here in Virginia with a set of restrictions from 1923 that allowed no structures on your land to be higher than your house, hence impeding some antenna building.. He didn't even know about it until he got a notice on his door after putting up a relatively short vertical.. !!

Is there any place these CCRs would be listed, and is a real estate agent obligated to search and find these out for you?? (Or would I have to contact a lawyer or something?)

Have the realtor request the title company to check if there are any CC&R's.  When you make an offer to buy a house make the offer contingent on there being no covenants that would prevent you from installing an antenna.  That way you have an out if the title search reveals any covenants you can't live with.

Better yet, if CCR's exist, have the title company send you the CCR's to review. You don't want to be sorry afterwards and you will have one hell of time getting any settlement money out of the realtors once the deal is closed.

I've always hired an attorney that specializes
in Real Estate.  The attorney that closes, that you
pay, dos NOT have you as his/her client.

Uusally, for an hour or two pay, I get a search and report on CCRs and their effect on me.
