State law authorizes a person who holds an ownership interest of record in property that is the subject of a racially or otherwise unlawfully restrictive covenant to record a Restrictive Covenant Modification document to have the illegal language stricken. Government Code §12956.2
Getting Your CC&Rs
Typically, you receive a copy of your property's Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CC&Rs) from the title company when you purchase your home. If you recently purchased a home and did not receive a copy of your CC&Rs, contact your title company for assistance.
You can also obtain a copy of your CC&Rs by visiting one of our office locations or sending us a copy order. If you have questions or need further assistance, call our office at (916) 874-6334.
