HOA Residency Restrictions For People On The Sex Offender Registry

Updated 01-10-2021 (Researched by hand. If you notice any errors, please notify me.)

I’ve personally researched and listed verifiable Home Owners Associations that restrict registered sex offenders from either owning or renting a home within their communities.

With thousands of HOA’s across the United States, it’s almost impossible to reach 100% accuracy in regards to sex offender restrictions, especially when their covenants, conditions, and restrictions (CC&Rs) change often. I’m constantly updating and verifying this list, so please check back from time to time. If you have additional information about HOA’s restricting registrants, please contact me.

Florida

  1. Suntree, Florida: Suntree Master Homeowners Association. From their resident handbook: “Residency of Sexual Offenders and Sexual Predators Prohibited. The Suntree Master Subdivision is a family oriented community which highly values its children and is a place that families with young children find highly desirable. The multiple parks, playgrounds, recreational open spaces and school bus stops within Suntree Master Subdivision are frequently visited and used by children, thereby passing the residences of persons who may target the children for criminal activities. For these reasons, the Association desires to protect the residents of the Suntree Master Subdivision from criminal activity to the maximum extent afforded by controlling law and further desires to promote and advance the health, safety and welfare of the residents of the Suntree Master Subdivision.Contact Suntree to voice your concern.
