thats how our place was in pensacola
the city owned the streets, so when the HOA complained about folks parking in the street, which is a violation of the HOA rules, folks would basically tell em to pack sand.
we lived in the cul de sac and all the kids played there because of no traffic, so we had em run off, because the city says NO PLAYING on a right of way
i was not popular after that
but at least no more basketballs in my wifes flower beds.

Not whining at alll. I ask a simple question and got some good ideas so that I can comply to the letter of the precious rules.

Which by the way, I've complied with via a written dispensation for the past 15 months. If they choose to revoke it, I will still comply, so rest easy.

Interesting thread, 75 posts in about 4 days, I think that was more than The "New" health care plan topic had over the same time frame. Seems that HOAs have a lot of friends, or enemies!

Perhaps a lot of folks aren't real happy with how there HOA is managed.

A WIN really feels good even if it's vicariously.

One thing I wonder about.. Do you HAVE to belong to the HOA to own there.. I mean the definition of "Owe" suggests you should, within the laws of the state, be able to make your own rules.

UNLESS. you join and agree to abide by the HOA rules.

But of course my opinion and {insert cost of a cup of coffee, don't forget tax and tip} will get you exactly one cup of coffee.

It's generally part of the deed restrictions one agrees to at the time of closing.

Run for seat on the board. I'm the pres of our homeowners and when someone wants a change they send their well enhanced trophy wife to get them changed. Needs two out of three to overide the rules.

It usually works.

The other neighbors get peived but they don't want the job

Wow this thread made for interesting reading over my lunch hour!!

We don't have HOA's here in Canada - we have "strata councils" who I refer to as Strata Nazis. When we lived in a townhouse we wanted to buy a "camperized van". We checked with the Nazi's and they said "a van? no problem".

So we proceeded to buy the biggest van we could find, 20 feet long with a huge high top (Okanagan van conversion). The neighbours were a bit shocked but technically it was a van and no one could do anything. (the little kids loved to play in it).

We only lived there for 16 months and after we moved, they changed the rules.

Anyway, I have no love for strata nazis and will never live in that situation again.

Cheers,

The HOA rules have different majorities to over ride and are defined in the CC&R's for the community. Some require 66.6%, some 75% and some as high as 90%.

Most also have a pretty well defined process to get the rules changed or amended.

I was fed up with the way ours was run and got on the board and wound up as board president. Most of the folks were happy, a few whiners were not happy at all.

SO it boils down to either get involved or sit down, shut up and follow the rules.

Both Good Sam and FMCA have assistance with how to fight a HOA. We belonged to FMCA and I sent them a copy of our CC&R's and got some excellent feed back from their volunteer attorney. GS was not nearly as helpful.

Good luck, Ken

I've lived in HOA communities for over 40 years and accepted the "no permanent parking of RV" clauses. I can park my motorhome a night or two to load/unload etc., and that is OK with me. I really wouldn't want a bunch of RVs permantly parked in our development
