What is a deed restriction?

A deed restriction is a covenant or condition that creates specific limitations on how the owner may use the property. Deed restrictions are usually imposed by the property's previous owner, developer, or homeowners' association. Common examples include architectural styles, restrictions on the materials and colors of structures built on the land, and whether or not businesses may operate on the land.
