A BILL TO BE ENTITLED
 
AN ACT
 
  relating to the amendment of a residential subdivision's
  declaration to affect certain types of property located in the
  subdivision.
         BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF TEXAS:
         SECTION 1.  Section 209.0041, Property Code, is amended by
  adding Subsection (d-1) to read as follows:
         (d-1)  This section does not apply to an amendment of a
  declaration if the amendment would affect a portion of a
  subdivision that is zoned for or that contains, or previously
  contained as specifically allowed under the declaration, a
  commercial structure, an industrial structure, an apartment
  complex, or a condominium as defined by Section 81.002 or 82.003.
  For purposes of this subsection, "apartment complex" means two or
  more dwellings in one or more buildings that are owned by the same
  owner, located on the same lot or tract, and managed by the same
  owner, agent, or management company.
         SECTION 2.  Section 209.0041(d-1), Property Code, as added
  by this Act, applies only to a vote to amend a declaration held on or
  after the effective date of this Act. A vote to amend a declaration
  held before the effective date of this Act is governed by the law as
  it existed immediately before that date, and that law is continued
  in effect for that purpose.
         SECTION 3.  This Act takes effect immediately if it receives
  a vote of two-thirds of all the members elected to each house, as
  provided by Section 39, Article III, Texas Constitution.  If this
  Act does not receive the vote necessary for immediate effect, this
  Act takes effect September 1, 2021.
