Our neighborhood CC&Rs prohibit chickens. We received our copy of the restrictions only at closing as the neighborhood development was so far behind schedule. a try at variances was denied as was a request the section regarding animals be removed and replaced with city code, which does allow chickens. I was looking the restrictions over recently. They are notarized about a year before we purchased and before there was any selling at all. However, they were not filed with the county of Dallas until nearly 6 months after we closed and moved in. Anyone familiar with if this restriction actually applies to us? Could we have a way around the restriction? Thanks!
