The deed restriction amendment issue is now before the Texas Supreme Court
Readers of this blog are aware that all over the state, subdivisions are abruptly "amending" restrictive covenants to impose new restrictions on property use. Owners who bought property before the new restrictions were adopted are being told they have lost the rights they purchased! I have been shepherding these cases through trial courts and courts of appeals throughout the state, and now two of the cases have been consolidated in the Texas Supreme Court. The linked petition provides the background and the cases nationwide on this issue. I am hopeful that we will, for the first time, get a statewide answer to this very important question.
