As a deed restricted community, we want to make sure that you and your prospective tenants understand our covenants. They are listed on pages 4&5, Part C of our current Directory (2022) and can also be found on the website here. While many of the covenants do not apply to renters, quite a few do (C2 - Use, C7 - Unsightly Objects, C8 - Nuisances, C9 - Signs, C10 - Animals, C11 - Use of Canals, C14 - Vehicles). Reviewing these covenants with a prospective tenant will eliminate potential problems in the future.
