Covenants, CONDITIONS & Restrictions (CCRs)

This is a legally binding document that is recorded and filed with Tarrant County.  Our CCRs cover the rights and obligations of the homeowners association to its members and likewise, the responsibilities of our homeowners to the Association and their neighbors.  The original CCRs were filed by the developer of Bedford Estates and responsibility for their enforcement was handed over to the Bedford Estates HOA when it was incorporated.  

These CCRs run with the land which means they are legally binding on the homeowner whether or not an HOA exists and whether or not the homeowner chooses to support said HOA by paying annual dues.

  • Because this document is kept on file with the county, it is difficult to amend and the state requires a vote of 67% of the homeowners to approve amendments.  The last update to the CCRs was filed in 2011.  We anticipate having to file an update to them in 2021 as Texas has passed several new laws governing HOAs plus many of the items do not reflect current conditions and/or products.  
  • In 2019 an ad hoc committee, convened by the President and chaired by the head of the Compliance Committee, evaluated the current CCRs and made recommendations to bring it current.  They also suggested that it be subjected to a peer group review of interested neighbors before being sent to an HOA lawyer for further review.  Once done, the amended CCRs will be filed with Tarrant County in 2021.
  •  If you are interested in participating in or chairing such a peer group review, please contact our HOA Vice President, Carol Brooks at carol.delimama.brooks@gmail.com.
