La Esperanza Townhome Ass'n, Inc., v. Title Security Agency of Arizona
In La Esperanza Townhome Ass'n, Inc., v. Title Security Agency of Arizona, 142 Ariz. 235, 689 P.2d 178 (App. 1984), the Court discussed the purpose of uniform covenants and restrictions:
Historically, restrictive covenants have been used to assure uniformity of development and use of a residential area to give the owners of lots within such an area some degree of environmental stability.
To permit individual lots within an area to be relieved of the burden of restrictive covenants, in the absence of a clear expression in the instrument so providing, would destroy the right to rely on restrictive covenants which has traditionally been upheld by our law of real property.
