Customer Question

Ok if you want last week I called the hoa president and his code enforcement officer a liar. The president called the cops, I was not arrested and went home.they sent me a certified letter notice to sign. I refused to sign. I never signed any agreement with them because My daughter is the owner. I have limited power of attorney representing my daughter. I will refuse the letter on the basis of not having signed any contract with the hoa.

Unfortunately, refusing service of a certified letter is not really going to do anything. Just because you do not have a contract, you are a resident in that community and are bound by their bylaws. However, if you feel there is harassment or selective enforcement then involving an attorney and possibly filing a lawsuit makes the most sense.
