How are private covenants enforced?

Such covenants are private rules that cover all of the properties within a specific development and regulate such things as the size and type of allowed fences and exterior colors of homes. These private rules are enforced by associations and not by the city.  You may find it very helpful to ask for a copy of the covenants beforehand to review.
