Restrictive alliances have been put in place to prevent minorities from moving into residential neighbourhoods. A group of homeowners would agree not to sell or rent their homes to African Americans, Jews and other minorities by including this restriction in their real estate. Until 1948, it was assumed that this form of private discrimination was legal because the state was not involved. In Shelley v. Kraemer, 334 U.S. 1, 68 P. Ct. 836, 92 L Ed. 1161 (1948), the U.S. Supreme Court held that such alliances were unenforceable in state courts, because such enforcement would amount to state measures in violation of the fourteenth complementary judgment to the U.S. Constitution. If a state court were to impose such an agreement, it would foster the perception that the state approved restrictive racist alliances.

Although this type of restrictive alliance is no longer enforceable to justice, some racial restrictions are still present in some acts. The provisions of a property of a particular land may limit your use of the property or the nature and placement of the structures on it. “Restrictive covenants” are an important aspect of housing and condominiums in which a developer or community tries to limit development growth or ensure consistency of appearance by regulating the aesthetic characteristics of development. A restrictive pact can address the characteristics of an evolution that can be objectively resolved (for example. B, minimum back exclusions or the prohibition of certain structures such as swimming pools or satellite dishes). Other characteristics of a development may be the center of gravity of more subjective restrictions, such as. B, the colors of the dwelling, architectural styles or the prohibition of commercial activity on residential property. Several legal means can be used to implement a restrictive pact.

An aggrieved party may seek a judicial explanation prohibiting a particular use or to prevent the use of property contrary to the federal state. Although damages are reusable for violation of a restrictive federal state, a person is not required to prove a violation because a simple violation of the federal state is fundamental to ending offensive behaviour or use. Restrictive alliances are a contractual means and the courts will use these alliances by applying contract law. A restrictive, reasonable, clear, clear and not contrary to public policy confederation is generally applicable. A court will resolve any ambiguity in a restrictive confederation in favour of the free and unlimited use of the country and against restriction.
