Why do I need permission from the HOA for an improvement?
Covenants, conditions, and restrictions (also called “CC&Rs”) are used by many “common interest” developments, including condominiums and co-ops, to regulate the use, appearance, and maintenance of property. CC&Rs, most commonly drafted and enforced through homeowners’ associations (HOAs), often restrict what homeowners can do on their property. For example, some CC&Rs do not allow homeowners to hang their laundry out to dry, set lawn maintenance standards, or prohibit home additions or major changes. community association deed restrictions specify what approvals need to be sought when making improvements in order to maintain the look and feel of the overall community as well as the overall value of the homes.
