For instance, the dynamics of covenant-restricted communities in Houston are always changing due to several factors: land availability, market trends, and increased requirements mandated by changing legislation. That’s why it is vital for developers to create community associations with supporting documentation that is well-researched, forward-thinking and legally compliant.
