Oh hon, this isn’t even the worst of it. We saw a deed in Baltimore last week that limited individuals living in a certain neighborhood from being non-white in fairly enumerated terms, and it wasn’t renounced by the neighborhood until…2014! The house sold in under a week for more than a million dollars. 😐

Deed restrictions like that are pretty common. They're not legally enforceable, so it's usually not worth the bother of actually getting them removed.

Yeah my understanding was they’re rendered null by the fair housing act but it that someone in 2014 felt compelled to “address “ it with a cover letter

Deed restrictions have been illegal since the fair housing act. In some areas, it's just hard to change the deed and so, it's just left on.
