In some neighborhoods Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs), other agreements between private parties, or deed restrictions don’t allow more than one living unit per lot. How do I know if r

Per HB 2001 CC&Rs adopted or amended Aug. 8, 2019, or later, that would allow a detached house on a lot but prohibit middle housing, are void and unenforceable. CC&Rs that existed before that date are not affected.

To find out if a property has CC&Rs or other restrictions, check the title report, contact a title company or realtor or check local recording office documents. The City of Beaverton does not monitor, track, or enforce CC&Rs or other private agreements.
