TX: HOA bans homeowners renting to sex offenders, but is it legal?

If I recall, housing restrictions started in America when a HOA or home builder in Texas was building new homes and stated they wouldn’t allow RSO’s.

CC&R/HOA agreements constitute contracts. The registration acts specifically state registration may not be used to discriminate in housing and employment (public policy). Contracts that violate public policy are illegal; ergo these contracts are illegal and at least those portions are unenforceable (see: severability in contracts).

Now… find someone to argeue and shoulder the expenses of that 🙁

I think we all should obtain the homeowners ASSoc’s email address and email them and say “Im a sex offender, not on the registry and I live on such and such a street) that is within the HOA’s property area… when they get flooded they will TRY and look into who everyone is LOL all in a sheer panic 🙂
