Hello, and thanks for submitting your question to Just Answer. You asked: 2. How can our covenants be changed? Generally speaking, once a plat is recorded with covenants in it, the covenants "run with the land" and bind every owner permanently. Since all owners buy their land in reliance on the covenants, they cannot be changed without the consent of every owner in the subdivision. Voting rights that are established in the Bylaws of the HOA can be amended by whatever methods for amendment are stated in the bylaws themselves.
