A declaration of covenants in property management is a legal document that outlines the various covenants, conditions, and restrictions (CC&Rs) for a property. The CC&Rs are the rules and guidelines that dictate how the property can be used, developed, and operated. The declaration of covenants is usually created by the property's developer, builder, or a government agency to ensure that the property is used and maintained in a specific manner. The CC&Rs may cover a wide range of topics, such as architectural guidelines, landscaping requirements, parking regulations, and noise restrictions. The declaration of covenants is an important document that helps ensure that the property is well-maintained and that all residents comply with the established rules and regulations.
