Deed Restrictions

Deed Restrictions are placed on the property when a subdivision is created.  They are binding regardless of an active HOA.  In neighborhoods where HOA’s are not present or active, the duty falls to the land owners to individually enforce the deed restrictions.  A neighbor can take another neighbor to court over violating a deeded restriction.  One of the functions of an HOA or an NA is to help make sure the rules are followed by all, and that no one land owner gets special treatment.  Below is a map that outlines the deeded restrictions broken out by section of Cherry Creek on Brodie.

Homes outside of the shaded areas are not part of Cherry Creek on Brodie.  They maybe part of Cherry Creek, but other HOA’s or NA’s have jurisdiction.

We have taken the opportunity to retype the deed restrictions to make them easier to read.  We  hope that no mistakes were made in the transcription, but we are only human, so we have also added a link below in each tab for the full PDF of the restrictions.  Please compare them if you have any questions.

    WHEREAS, Declarant is the sole owner of the property described as CHERRY CREEK SECTION TEN-A, a subdivision in Travis County, Texas, according to the map or plat thereof recorded in Volume 86, Pages 16C-16D, Plat Records of Travis County, Texas, to which plat and its record reference is here made for all purposes (hereinafter called the “Subdivision”), and desires to encumber the property comprising the subdivision with the covenants, conditions, restrictions, reservations and charges hereinafter set forth, which shall inure to the benefit and pass with the property comprising the Subdivision, each and every parcel or resubdivision thereof, and shall apply to and bind all future owners of any portion thereof.

    NOW THEREFORE, Declarant hereby declares that all of the property comprising the Subdivision shall be held, transferred, sold and conveyed subject to the following covenants, conditions, restrictions, reservations and charges, hereby specifying and agreeing that this Declaration and the provisions hereof  shall be and do constitute covenants running with the land and shall be binding upon Declarant, its successors and assigns, and all subsequent owners of any portion of the Subdivision, and the owners, by acceptance of their deeds, for themselves, their heirs, executors and assigns, covenant and agree to abide by the terms and conditions of this Declaration.

     

    1. PROPERTY SUBJECT TO THE DECLARATION

    The property which is and shall be held, transferred, sold and conveyed, subject to the covenants, conditions, restrictions, reservations and charges hereinafter set forth is described as follows:

    CHERRY CREEK SECTION TEN-A, a subdivision in Travis County, Texas, according to the map or plat thereof recorded in Volume 86, Pages 16C-16D, Plat Records of Travis County, Texas.

     

    1. COVENANTS, CONDITIONS, RESTRICTIONS, RESERVATIONS AND CHARGES


    The Subdivision described in Section I hereof is encumbered by the covenants, conditions, restrictions, reservations and charges hereinafter set forth to insure the best and highest use and the most appropriate development and improvements of each lot for residential purposes within said Subdivision; to protect owners of lots against improper use of surrounding lots; to preserve so far as practicable, the natural beauty of said Subdivision; to guard against the erection of poorly designed or proportioned structures of improper or unsuitable materials; to encourage and secure the erection of attractive improvements on each lot with appropriate location; to prevent haphazard and inharmonious improvements of lots; to secure and maintain proper setbacks from streets and adequate free space; and, in general, to provide for development of the highest quality to enhance the value of investments made by owners.

     

    1. Land Use and Building Types. The lots shall be used solely for private single family residential purposes. On each residential lot no building shall be erected, altered, placed or permitted other than a detached, single family dwelling not to exceed  two (2) stories in height, with an attached private garage or carport for not more than three (3) cars. No building shall remain incomplete for more than one (1) year after construction has been commenced.
    2. Antennae. No exterior radio or television antenna or aerial or satellite dish receiver shall be erected or maintained on any Lot. The foregoing notwithstanding, in the event of the absolute prohibition of such antenna or receivers in invalidated or held to be unenforceable in any respect, then no exterior radio or television antenna, satellite dish or similar device shall be permitted to be erected or placed on any Lot unless the same is screened from view from adjoining Lots, streets and other portions of the Subdivision.
    3. Architectural Control. No building, wall fence or any other improvement shall be erected or placed on, nor shall any building, wall, fence or any other improvement be altered, modified, added to or removed from any lot until the construction plans and specifications thereof and a plan showing the location of all buildings, walls, fences and other improvements, including, but not limited to, driveways and setbacks have been approved in writing by the Architectural Control Committee, hereafter called “Committee”. Nor shall the topography of the lot be enlarged in any way which will impede, restrict or in any way divert the flow of water without the prior written approval of the Committee. The approval of the Committee shall not be unreasonably or whimsically withheld.

     

    The Committee shall be composed of three (3) members. The original members of the Committee shall be Bryan Rome, Steve Herring and Terry E. Mitchell. Each Committee member shall serve at the pleasure of the Declarant. In the event of the death, resignation or removal of any member of said Committee, the remaining member or members will have full authority to act until the member or members have been replaced. A decision of a majority of the Committee shall be binding on all members thereof.

     

    The Committee in considering each set of plans and specifications and the plan showing the location of all improvements shall consider, among other things, the quality of design and materials, harmony of the design with existing structures and location with respect to topography and finished grade elevation.

     

    The Committee’s approval or disapproval of the plans and specifications and plot plan for the improvements to be erected or placed on a lot, or the plans and specifications for the alteration, modification, addition to or removal of any improvements located on a lot, shall be granted within thirty (30) days after the same have been submitted to the Committee; if the Committee’s approval  or disapproval is not so granted within such thirty (30) days, then in that event the same shall be deemed approved and this covenant complied with. All plans and specifications shall be delivered to the Committee not less than thirty (30) days prior to the date construction is to be commenced at its office at 11911 Burnet Road, Austin, Travis County, Texas 78758, or any such other address as it may designate, by certified mail, return receipt requested, or delivered and a written receipt received therefore, and the date received by the Committee shall be considered the date of delivery to the Committee.

     

    Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, the Committee is hereby authorized, at its sole discretion, to waive any requirements relating to garages (including size), carports, dwelling size, masonry, requirements, fences, and setbacks and such decision shall be binding on all owners of lots encumbered by this Declaration.

    1. SIDEWALKS


    The owner of each lot shall construct, at his cost and expense and prior to his occupancy of the dwelling, sidewalks, if any, as set forth on the recorded subdivision plat. This provision may not be amended or altered in any way without the prior written approval of the applicable governmental entity having jurisdiction over the Subdivision.

     

    1. TERM


    These covenants run with the land and shall be binding on all persons claiming under them until January 1, 2019 (“initial term”), at which time said covenants shall be automatically extended for successive periods of ten (10) years each (“renewal term”) unless, by vote of a majority of the then- owners of the lots encumbered by this Declaration, it is agreed to change said Declaration in whole or in part.

    Any such instrument of amendment or termination must be executed and acknowledged by fifty- one percent (51%) of the then-owners of the lots encumbered by this Declaration and filed of record in the Official Real Property Records of county(s) in which the Subdivision is located, Texas. The instrument of amendment shall be effective to amend this Declaration when such instrument is filed of record. The instrument of termination shall be effective to terminate this Declaration at the expiration of the initial term, if such instrument is filed of record during the initial term hereof; or if such instrument is filed of record during any renewal term, this Declaration shall be terminated at the end of such renewal term. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, Declarant, its successors or assigns, may amend these covenants at any time, or from time to time, in order to correct any typographical errors or other errors or omissions which, in the discretion of the developer, its successors or assigns, may require amendment in order to properly reflect the intent hereof. Such amendments to correct typographical errors or other errors or omissions shall be effective on the date that such amendment is filed of record in the Official Real Property Records of the county(s) in which the Subdivision is located, Texas by the Declarant, its successors or assigns. Notwithstanding  anything  hereinabove, no amendment shall be effective until the approval of any governmental regulatory body which is required shall have been obtained.

     

    1. EXTERIOR MAINTENANCE


    In the event the owner of any lot shall fail to maintain the premises and the improvements situated thereon in a neat and orderly manner, the Committee shall have the right, through its agents and employees, to enter upon said lot and to repair, maintain and restore the lot and exteriors of the buildings and any other improvements erected thereon, all at the expense of the owner.

     

    1. ENFORCEMENT


    If the owner of any lot, or his heirs, executors, administrators, successors, assigns or tenants shall violate or attempt to violate any of the covenants set forth in this Declaration, it shall be lawful for any person, or persons, owning any lot encumbered by this Declaration, or Declarant, to prosecute any proceedings against the person, or persons, violating, or attempting to violate, any such covenants. The failure of the owner or tenant to perform his obligations hereunder would result in irreparable damage to the Declarant and other owners of lots in the Subdivision, thus the breach of any provisions of this Declaration may not only give rise to an action for damages at law, but also may be enjoined by an action for specific performance in equity in any court of competent jurisdiction. Such action may be brought against any person, firm or corporation violating, or apparently about to violate, any of these covenants, either before such violation occurs or within a reasonable time thereafter, for an appropriate order or injunction of either a restraining or mandatory nature, or both, and of either a temporary or permanent nature, or both, including, but not limited to, one restraining construction of any improvements commenced, or about to be commenced, without the prior written approval of the Committee or for the removal of any improvement constructed without the prior written approval of the Committee. In the event enforcement actions are instituted and the party bringing such action is successful in obtaining any relief, then in addition to the remedies specified above, the party or parties against whom such relief was granted shall pay to the enforcing party costs and reasonable attorney’s fees in such amount as the court may determine. Failure to enforce any covenant or restriction herein contained shall in no event be deemed a waiver of the right to do so thereafter.

     

    1. SEVERANCE


    In the event any of the foregoing covenants, conditions, restrictions, reservations or charges is held invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, it shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the other covenants, conditions, restrictions, reservations or charges. If one of the foregoing is subject to more than one interpretation, the interpretation which more clearly reflects the intent hereof shall be enforced.

    These covenants run with the land and shall be binding on all persons claiming under them until January 1, 2019 (“initial term”), at which time said covenants shall be automatically extended for successive periods of ten (10) years each (“renewal term”) unless, at any time, and from time to time, by vote of a majority of the then-owners of the lots encumbered by this Declaration, it is agreed to change said Declaration in whole or in part.

    Any such instrument of amendment or termination must be executed and acknowledged by (i) fifty-one percent (51%) of the then-owners of the lots encumbered by this Declaration and (ii) Declarant, if Declarant owns any property of any nature in the Subdivision encumbered by this Declaration. Such instrument must be filed of record in the Official Real Property Records of the county(s) in which the Subdivision is located, Texas. The instrument of amendment shall be effective to amend this Declaration when such instrument is filed of record. The instrument of termination shall be effective to terminate this Declaration at the expiration of the initial term, if such instrument is filed of record during the initial term hereof; or if such instrument is filed of record during any renewal term, this Declaration shall be terminated at the end of such renewal term. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, Declarant, its successors or assigns, may amend these covenants at any time, or from time to time, in order to correct any typographical errors or other errors or omissions which, in the discretion of the developer, its successors or assigns, may require amendment in order to properly reflect the intent hereof. Such amendments to correct typographical errors or other errors or omissions shall be effective on the date that such amendment is filed of record in the Official Real Property Records of the county(s) in which the Subdivision is located, Texas by the Declarant, its successors or assigns. Notwithstanding anything hereinabove, no amendment shall be effective until the approval of any governmental regulatory body which is required shall have been obtained.

    1. Unless expressly amended by this Amendment, all other terms and provisions of the Declaration shall remain in full force and effect.
