Hi Nigel. Are you referring to deed restrictions as would apply to a community with recorded convenants, rules and regulations; or are you referring other restrictions that might apply to transfer of real property?

this would be restrictions in the community and each one is different from rental restrictions, to painting of you home, or adding on to your home to not being able to have certain types of trucks or RV's etc.....
these are online you know w/county clerks office, but before you buy a home you should find out if there are restrictions you should know about. and if you work with an agent then they should be helping you with this, if you are not call me and i will write offer for you and work on making sure your informed

Another example would be for an over 55 community, or, in some HOA's no grand pianos....

Sometimes a particular development has a governing document called Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CCR). These are rules that control certain aspects of how you can use your property if you live in that community.

For example, it's not uncommon for a golf community to have a rule in the CCR that prohibits putting up a fence, since a fence could block views of the golf course from neighboring properties. A development that has a CCR is called a "deed restricted" community. A CCR is not a bad thing. It usually has the effect of protecting property values. The website referenced below provides some additonal information. Good luck in your home search.
