Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Counties Code. Provides that a restrictive covenant modification to an unlawful restrictive covenant may be filed by: (1) the holder of an ownership interest in property that is subject to the unlawful restrictive covenant; or (2) a common interest community association, a condominium association, a unit owners' association, or a master association of a parcel of property subject to the association's declaration and the parcel is subject to an unlawful restrictive covenant. Includes requirements for a restrictive covenant modification and the petition to modify. Provides that, on receipt of a restrictive covenant modification, the recorder shall submit the restrictive covenant modification together with a copy of the original instrument referenced in the restrictive covenant modification to the State's Attorney. Once submitted to the State's Attorney, the State's Attorney shall make a determination within 30 days if the original document contains an unlawful restrictive covenant. Provides that the recorder may not record the modification unless the State's Attorney determines an unlawful restrictive covenant exists and shall record the modification if the State's Attorney finds an unlawful restrictive covenant. Limits liability of the county for unauthorized modifications. Defines terms. Contains other provisions.
