The guy who wants to rent out his house for wedding receptions built a 5000 square foot house that he has been trying to sell for many years, asking upwards of a million dollars. I think he got in over his head in the early 2000s real estate boom, and now can't sell the house. I'm soory, but I didn't build here to have traffic jams on the shared single lane gravel road, loud bands, and drunks vomiting on the hillside. What other sorts of wedding receptions are there?
The other property owner who claims CC&Rs have an expiration date is trying to sell his house, and has listed it as having no CC&Rs, so I think I can see why he wants to think this.
UPDATE: A couple of readers hjave asked if ScopeRoller violates these CC&rS. I don't think so, so I went looking for definitions of "residential use" and I found this:
Something that is deemed “for residential use” is designed for use at home or rather than for business or commercial use.and this:
Describing an area primarily used for housingScopeRoller is a few hours a week in a building that is primarily used for housing. I think I am safe. If my neighbor intended to live in his house and use it occasionally for wedding receptions, he would possibly be okay.
