Amendment Prohibiting Renters Was “Reasonable”

Facts: The declaration of covenants and restrictions of a private residential community included an amendment that prohibited owners from renting their homes to tenants. After the association learned that one of the owners in the community was renting her home to a tenant, it sued the owner. The association asked the trial court for an injunction—that is, an order from the court to the owner to stop renting her home to the current tenant and not to rent to future tenants—without a trial. The trial court granted the injunction, and the owner appealed.
