Our deed restrictions are one of Winlow Place's most valuable assets. They help to preserve the history and desirability of our neighborhood.
Overview on Deed Restrictions
Please click on the graphic to the right to download the Winlow Place deed restrictions. As an overview, Winlow Place is one of the exceptions in Houston in that it is a neighborhood with strong residential deed restrictions in place. Due to the lack of zoning in Houston, deed restrictions are particularly important as they enforce building requirements for a subdivision.
Deed restrictions are a legal instrument that a civic club can turn to when any discrepancies arise. The enforcement may include items such as the inability to subdivide a property/lot, setback and height requirements as well as guidelines regarding business use of a home. For a full list, please refer to the document itself. Our deed restrictions are fully enforced and Winlow Place has a strong voice in preserving and protecting our history, which dates back to 1923. They prove ever-valuable to our residents and property owners.
