What are CC&Rs?
The Declaration of Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions (aka the “Declaration” or “CC&Rs”) describes the rights and obligations of the membership to the association and the association to the membership. CC&Rs contain restrictions to real property and generally cover the following:
• Restrictions on the use of property
• Member and association maintenance duties
• Enforcement powers
• Lender protection provisions
• Assessments obligations
• Lien/collection rights
• Duty to insure
• Dispute resolution and attorneys’ fees provisions
CC&Rs are like Arizona's constitution – only voters can amend the State’s constitution and only members can amend the CC&Rs.
