Covenants

Legally enforceable terms that govern the use of property. These terms are transferred with the property deed. Discriminatory covenants are illegal and unenforceable. Also known as a condition, restriction, deed restriction or restrictive covenant.

A covenant is a solemn promise to engage in or refrain from a specified action. It is commonly found in religious contexts, where it refers to sacred agreements between mythological deities and human beings.
