NO. It means that there are restrictions you agree to respect the moment you buy the property. They could be about the type of fencing you can use, they could be about how many vehicles you can park on the street, about where to store the trash cans, etc.

Whether the community allows short-term rental (under 6 months) or long term rental is just another of the things that can be part of the deed restrictions.....not the only one. Was this answer helpful? If so please click on the "green thumbs up" or the "best answer".

Hi Vera:

Deed Restriction means the rules and regulations of a community. The community being zoned for short term rentals or not could be a part of Deed Restriction: I have sold several properties in short term rental areas below is the link to some homes in these areas:

Deed Restriction are the rules and regulations people who live in the community agree to abide by. The rules may say that short term rentals (6 months or less) are allowed. They may not. It depends on the restrictions of the community itself. They are recorded in public record. You can find them by search the records of the Clerk of Court for the county the property is located in.
