In My Neighborhood in 77090>Question Details

Glover, Home Buyer in Houston, TX

I am looking for the deed restriction for Pine Oak Forest Subdivision in zip code 77090.

Asked by Glover, Houston, TX Mon Jul 28, 2008

My husband and I just purchased a home in the Pine Oak Forest Subdivision, but we were not provided with the deed restrictions for our subdivision. Does anyone know how to obtain these. No one around here seems to know??? We are also wanting to see the crime stats for our area.

Hello. I am thinking of buying in Pine Oak Forest. I cannot find anything about the subdivision online. I understand I can go to the County Clerk and get a copy of the deed restrictions, but this seems frivilous since it's been over 25 years since their inception. I have a 15 y.o. son and was wondering how family oriented the subdivison is? Also, is there a community pool, tennis courts, or club house?
Thank you.

Hello. I live in Pine Oak Forest and there is alot of questions about what type of deed restrictions are in place and how enforceable they are. I have lived in this neighborhood for 15 years and seen them lapse many times and people have done things that were not in the original. It's a big mess. I am for NO deed restrictions due to the location of the subdivision. I have not seen the most recent copy but from your post you moved in over two years ago. If you would like to still discuss this please feel free to email me at clairekdavis@yahoo.com

Glover,
Lynn is correct about the County Clerk, but this is something that should have been covered in closing. Contact your closer or title company and ask them to order the restrictions for you, there will be a charge but is will be easier for them to do this than you as they are supposed to be doing this every day.
You may be in an area where the restrictions are over 25 years old and were not renewed, which makes them questionable.

Residents may obtain a copy of deed restrictions for their subdivision from the County Clerk of the county in which they reside. Each county charges a nominal fee for copies of deed restrictions
