Unlawful Restrictive Covenants

Connecticut Public Act 21-173 Public Act No. 21-173 defines an Unlawful Restrictive Covenant as “a covenant or other provision in an instrument affecting the title to real property that purports to restrict ownership or occupancy of such real property on the basis of race.”

In accordance with P.A. No. 21-173, any unlawful restrictive covenant contained in any instrument affecting title to real property that is recorded in the land records of any municipality shall be VOID.  Any owner of real property who identifies an unlawful restrictive covenant in an instrument recorded on the land records that relates to real property owned by such person may file either an affidavit pursuant to section 47-12a of the general statutes, as amended by this act, or a form described in subsection (f), with the town clerk in the municipality where the real property is located, identifying the existence of the unlawful restrictive covenant.
