    Ridiculous! So people who work have to leave their garage doors open when they're not home? I wonder what insurance companies will think of this idea?

    BTW, what does this have to do with ham radio?

    It's why we need less HOAs. None at all would be a good goal.:)

    no, thanks. I'll take an HOA any day over a non-hoa. Have you SEEN how people treat their properties?

    THEIR properties. Just saying. :rolleyes:
    They pay the taxes, the mortgage. Whatever. You're not interfering with my life or my inalienable rights; knock yourself out.

    Buy into a neighborhood that typically costs more and those people typically take care of their properties regardless of whether or not they pay a fee to live there.

    My dad's old neighborhood no HOA but it was on a lake. (costs more) The neighborhood was pretty much flawless.

    It depends on who you fear the most. If a municipality did this, they would be sued by the residents, and the residents would likely prevail. If it's an HOA, you may have to go through arbitration first (or exclusively). Given the article's reference to an administrative hearing, it's likely this was just such a subdivision.

    This is obviously the type of HOA that can make new rules after you move in. Not all HOAs are like that. Some of them have a fixed rule set that everybody knows up front, and they have no ability to make more rules. We have many of the latter around here. The "rules" are the covenant restrictions, and they are in black and white for anybody to read before they buy a house in such a neighborhood.

    If you spend six or seven figures on a house that has a CC&R attached giving rule-making powers to an HOA, your main problem is not the HOA...

    my assumption (incorrect) is that the HOA in question was the 'normal' entity where changes like this must be done by vote of HOA members.
