Image Description

If your Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CC&Rs) are more than 30 years old, it may be time to update these documents to reflect your community’s changing demographics.

Ursula K. Burgess, Esq., a shareholder at Rees Broome, PC, in Tysons Corner, Va., CAI’s 2019 President-elect, and a CAI Board of Trustees member, tells us why it’s beneficial to update your community’s CC&Rs and how to do it in a way that best reflects how the community currently operates and the state of the law.

“Unfortunately, there isn’t an easy way to do it, you have to amend the documents. The only way that will occur is if the board makes the commitment to do it … to have meaning revisions to the documents.”
