Welcome to Just Answer! My name isXXXXX very much enjoy what I do and I hope that you will benefit from this information.
The HOA cannot engage in selective enforcement of its rules. So, you can ask them to make sure all others comply, but if they don't your only resort is a lawsuit. The reverse is also true, you can rent it out and they can sue to get an order to stop you from renting at which time you can try to defend on the grounds of selective enforcement. Either way, however, you will be dealing with court costs and legal fees.
Unfortunately, if you do not have the money to endure a legal battle, you rights in this country are limited. The system is designed to preserve the status quo and protect the wealthy.
If the one person who is withholding consent is doing so unreasonably, then you may be able to require the court to read that into the HOA laws, but this is a long shot.

Sometimes the law does not give you the outcome that you may have anticipated. Please understand that this is not the attorney's fault. We are assuming that you are paying for an honest and professional opinion.
