What is the easiest way to find out about deed restrictions? If any?

While searching for land some listing agents have commented light restrictions. How can I quickly find out what they are if the agent doesn’t respond.

Worked with a client in Montgomery, TX I reached out to the listing agent and the she provided me the HOA board member who provided necessary documents for any restrictions within that community.

There is not always an easy way as all HOAs by laws are management differently. Some are easily accessed on the website for that particular neighborhood and are readily available to the public for download while others are held and an HOA management company that requires a fee in order to get any information on the HOA, bylaws, and regulations. Sometimes if you have a relationship with a title company in the area of the the neighborhood that you are needing the information for they would have already closed a home and requested bylaw/deed/regulatory information and they could just email you a copy as it would normally by the same for all of the homes in that particular subdivision unless some special rules apply to certain homes.

If the property/land is located in a subdivision, check sales for neighboring properties. Some of them may have information about HOA in the listing or SD. If the title is already open, call the Title Company. They might already have information about the properties from previous transaction and will be able to assist you with information. In some cases you might come across restrictions that were placed by previous owners/sellers. These ones are most probably in the records of the county clerk. However, if you have a buyer, and unresponsiveness of the agent threatens with loss of the sale, contact the listing agent's broker and seek their help. Don't be shy, In the end, your main goal is to put the seller and buyer in the same boat. Unfortunately, in these pandemic conditions you cannot be sure as to why the listing agent is not responding, especially if the TREC prescribed timeline passed. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Deed restrictions are public information. You can pull them up in the county records. Also, you can build a relationship with a title company that we pull the restrictions for you.

Most deed restrictions come up during title search by the title company. “The title company will alert you of any deed restrictions in the chain of title,”

Having been in the title industry for 20 years, the short answer is review Schedule B of your title commitment. Title companies will not point them out, you have to look for them and you have to request a copy. Unfortunately it is not the norm for the majority of title companies to automatically provide a copy of the deed restrictions aka CCR's

County Clerks Office should have them in Records by Subdivision. Volume and pages. Maybe try calling them.

Easiest way to find deed restrictions if listing agent is not responding or being vague on listing is to look them up online in the county records. If unable to locate online or having a problem contact one of your local title companies for assistance.

Look up the subdivision online and generally it will tell you if there are Deed Restrictions. Some subdivisions post their restrictions on their website, and if not you can reach out to the contact on the site. If you are unsuccessful you can contact any Title Agency and they can gather that information for you.
