HOAs

I live in a small townhouse with 4 units in each building. In the purchase papers it stated that my house comes with 2 parking spots. I have one jeep so the other spot is empty. I am investigating buying a small trailer that will easily fit into my other parking spot.
The president of the HOA lives across from me and is an easy to get along with type of person. I have asked 2 or 3 times if the HOA has rules against having a trailer. Also asking if copies of the HOA rules are available. I have not been able to get a response other than "I'll look into it and get back with you".
With the warm weather fast approaching and the lead times on getting a TT, I would like to get one on order. Technically I haven't been told that I can't have one, but I don't want to invest $$ and then have to sell it right away. I will not pay storage anywhere.
Ultimately you can't argue with the HOA especially if someone is complaining. So, anyone else live with a HOA? What are your rules with TTs?

Each HOA has their own rules. Iíve lived in a few and always received a copy of them prior to closing. I had to agree to them upon purchasing. Iím surprised you didnít get a copy.

You should have been given a copy of the HOA R&Rs as well as the CC&Rs in a planned community. I am not sure about North Carolina but in AZ and CA (Where I am a licensed RE Broker) it is a legal requirement to provide you with a copy of these documents prior to the close of Escrow.

I'd recommend you contact your Real Estate agent and see what can or should have been done to get a copy of these documents. You may also want to go through your closing papers as there may just be a copy of them in there.

Additionally, you should contact the management company that manages the association and collects your dues as they more than likely will have a copy of these available.

Lastly, you could simply attend one of your monthly HOA meetings and bring it up in the open forum, that way you get all the board members and the management company..... careful though as you may find your self on the board before you know it

I started out renting the house and the owner ended up having to sell due to health issues. I liked the place and didn't want to move. They covered the closing costs, so it only cost me $50 to buy the place and the mortgage is $100 less than rent. I got a good deal on the place and I believe the realtor is a friend of the seller and didn't charge her anything trying to help her out.


I'll look through the closing papers, but I don't remember seeing or signing a HOA agreement. They don't even sent out a monthly bill/statement. Your just supposed to sent them a check each month. I asked the president for a copy of the R&R and he seamed confused as to if there is even one. I agree there should be by law. The community is rural and laid back.

They may be easy and layed back, but I can almost guarantee not all the residents are that way. And all it takes is just one complaining neighbor to make a HOA a nightmare.
Don't park a trailer there until you have the answers you need. Don't they have an RV utility parking/storage area?

I purchased a new house which was about number 6 or so in a planned community. There was no HOA at that time. Then they build several thousand more homes.

One day I got a letter from the HOA which I assumed I was not part of, telling me that my TV antennae was six inches too high.
How the heck did they know?
I went up on the rood and sure enough, exactly six inches too high.
They threatened to ban my children from the community pool if I did not lower it.
I wrote them a letter stating I had lowered it.
Then my neighbor and I got a letter that we were to appear before the gardening committee. What now?��*♂️
Well, it turned out they liked the landscaping we had done around our homes and wanted advice on how to do it.
It was like living under communist party rule.��
Never again!

As a renter, they don't have to give you a copy. However, they're still required to keep a copy ON SITE that is available to all residents and has reasonable access.

Ask in writing and give it 30 days. If there's still no response, I'd park whatever I wanted to in that spot.

My question "Are there any RVs parked in any of the parking spaces?" If not, then I doubt they'd allow it. I'm not a fan of HOA but it works for others.

My HOA doesnt allow any type of RV.

Its a bummer but I like living in a nice neighborhood.

If they did allow RVs you can bet some A-hole would be parking junk in his driveway with a river of oil going into the storm drain.

From my experience, most HOAs do not allow RVs unless they are in a garage or otherwise out of sight. I would definitely get a hard copy of the rules before buying a trailer. Good luck!

Well, to my surprise, the answer is yes! I can park a small trailer there as long as it fits into my parking spot. Now if I can only find one with out waiting 15 months.
