When you purchase a home in a neighborhood like ours with a Home Owners Association, you need to be aware that there are Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CCRs) that were established when the neighborhood was developed and that have been passed on to the HOA with the understanding that they will continue to be enforced.

In this way, home values are protected as is the appearance and upkeep of the neighborhood.  These conditions hold true whether you choose to contribute to the upkeep of the common areas of the neighborhood and other projects undertaken by the HOA by paying your home owner dues.  

In addition, current residents planning to sell their home should make real estate agents and potential buyers aware of these CCRs before contracts are signed to avoid any future misunderstandings.  

These CCRs and documents to be used to seek HOA approval for external home renovations are included elsewhere under this tab.

The most recent changes to Texas law and their impact on HOAs are contained in SB 1588.  Here is a LINK to the actual bill.  Here is another LINK to a property management company that makes for a bit easier reading. 

We are reviewing these changes and they will be incorporated into either our By-Laws or the Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions that are in place for Bedford Estates.  Not all apply to Bedford Estates e.g. as our dues are not mandatory and we are not required to produce some of the real estate paperwork mentioned.

Once completed, the amended CCRs will be presented to our homeowners and eventually refiled with Tarrant County.  If you would like to participate in that review process, please contact our VP, Carol Brooks at carol.delimama.brooks@gmail.com
