How to find the covenant for your Rock Creek Hills home in three easy steps!

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

Pencil;

Paper;

Computer.

  • STEP 1:
    Go to the map at <http://goo.gl/OyDbR6> and find your home. Write down your block number (on the map it appears within a circle) and lot number. [Lot & Block Numbers also appear on your tax bill.]
  • STEP 2:
    Go to the table at <http://goo.gl/dMRylc> and, using your block number and lot number, find the corresponding covenant number in the rightmost column. Write that down.
  • STEP 3:
    Go to <http://goo.gl/lg1Zbt> and click on your covenant number. Et voilĂ , you will see the covenant for your home. You can print or save the PDF file.

NOTES:

1. Most covenants begin with an offensive racial exclusionary clause. Such clauses are unenforceable, per the 1948 decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in Shelley v. Kraemer.

2. This information reflects the understanding of well-intentioned folks, but should not be deemed definitive.

3. Thanks to Richard Humphries for obtaining and posting the covenants, and to Sam Hoxie for maintaining <http://rchca.org/resources/covenants/>.
