Ed, we suggest you talk with a real estate lawyer. Maybe the laws of your city do require that the home seller discloses that information and, if that's the case, maybe you can have the money back or make him/her responsible for whatever fees should that be the case. But find a LOCAL real estate lawyer to better inform you. Good luck!

Who is bound by real estate community restrictions, buyer or seller?

Hey Ed,

Anyone who lives within that community is bound by its restrictions, so, in a way, both. Once the seller leaves the community he or she is no longer bound to those restrictions. Once the buyer becomes a resident, he or she becomes bound by its restrictions.
