§ 34-39.1-6. Invalidity of certain restrictive covenants.
Since decent, safe and sanitary housing units available and affordable to persons and families of low and moderate income must by their nature be situated in residential areas, including exclusively residential areas and also mixed use areas, any restrictive covenant or other private legal impediment which directly or indirectly prevents or restricts the establishment of housing subject to a housing restriction as defined in this chapter, excluding conservation restrictions and preservation restrictions as defined in § 34-39-2, shall be void and unenforceable.
