Customer Question

we live in an over 55 community in East Bridgewater, Ma which consists of individual homes with small lots which are owned by the homeowners. It is considered an APRUD and we have an association and common land which includes a clubhouse, walking trials, a golf driving range and putting green. One of our residents is trying to refinance and after several months the bank, which I believe is in Rhode Island has requested a CCR and they are unable to tell us what that is. Is there such a form that we can complete to help him out. I am chairman of the Board of Trustees which is how I came upon this.Thank you

I am sorry to hear of your difficult situation and am working on your answer now.

CC&Rs (Covenants Conditions and Restrictions) are typically resolutions passed by the Board. They are usually recorded with the local register of deed's office and touch and concern the land or all properties within the association's boundaries.

If you contact the local register of deed's office, they may have a copy of the association's CC&Rs, if any were recorded there.

Here is a link to sample CC&Rs:
