Deed restrictions are nothing to be alarmed about. They are a common legal instrument used to uphold community standards and preserve the value of the neighborhood for the sake of all property owners. But, you also don’t want to be surprised either. You don’t want to buy a house; thinking to add a third bedroom or build an outbuilding to house your 45 foot RV only to find out you can’t due to deed restrictions. You’ll save a lot of time, money and headaches finding out what you can and can’t do ahead of time.
