2.01   Each and every lot in the Development is for residential use only.  Only residences may be erected, altered, placed or be permitted to remain on any lot.  Lots shall not be used for garage sales, wholesale or retail business establishments, or for any commercial purpose.  Any gainful employment of professional use of a lot or residence that violates the quiet enjoyment of any other property in the Development is prohibited.  No soil or trees shall be removed for any commercial use.  Removal of live trees shall be limited to the extent necessary for clearing the site for construction; additional tree removal must be approved by the Architectural Control Committee.



2.02   Rental of any house and lot for period of six or more months shall not be deemed a commercial usage.  Short term rental (i.e., weekend or periods of less than six months) shall not be permitted.  In any event, no use shall be permitted which would violate the quiet enjoyment of any other property within the Development.


The rental of more than one property or the rental of property on a short term basis (e.g. daily, weekly, monthly) will be considered commercial activity and therefore a violation of the covenants and restriction.  The Supreme Court of Texas has upheld short-term rental as commercial activity.

Rental of a property may be approved by a request in writing to the Board of Directors along with a copy of the lease agreement for at least six (6) months and giving personal identification information of the proposed renter.  The property Owner will then be informed of approval through the Tall Tree Office before occupancy should take place.  No sub-leasing of property by an approved renter is allowed.  Forms necessary for compliaince3 with this policy may be obtained in the Tall Tree Office.



2.03   The Association may dedicate one or more lots for park use, common use, or other uses for the general benefit of the Owners in the Development.  The Association makes no representation for responsibility to furnish any recreational amenities.
