HI again, Thanks for the great advise. I called the sr inspector and jr inspector and sent them an email regarding what you said. Now the neighbors have gone to the HOA. There is a BAD ass dude on the board who I helped get kicked off the HOA board years ago bec he was used by the one neighbor as a tool to harass me, he was rude to me who started the welcoming committee, landscape committee, threw parties for free for the HOA association, etc.
Thanks for the GREAT answer! I will, of course, do what you told me to do and write a letter to the board. Do you mind if I run it by you before I send it out? The big problem here is our board is very educated. I told you about the HOA attorney on the board. He is the nasty one who everyone hates bec he is arrogant and extremely rude. He will try to put a nail in my coffin I'm sure because I nailed him when he ran for reelection years ago saying we didn't want a rude person like him to represent our neighborhood.
My property is not underwater and there is a lot of equity but my ex refinanced it and took a lot of money out at 5.83% plus a HELOC which is killing me each month. He KNEW I would want the house and said I had to assume all responsibility for the loans. My alimony and child suport doesn't even pay the mortgage and taxes... So glad that's what 24 years of marriage got me! All of the HOA dues are paid to date. Unfortunately, unlike most Americans, I pay my bills before I eat or buy clothes, hence the reason I am so broke right now and LOVE thrift shops!
I built my home and REALLY LOVE IT. I don't want anyone to force me out. If I leave here, I want it to be on my terms, no one else's (There's the stubborn Aquarian in me!).
I have a wedding here tomorrow that I am cooking for and doing all of the flowers. Sunday and Monday I will work on the letter and send it to you then if that is okay. I REALLY am sooo grateful for all of your considerate, well thought out, worthwhile advise. Even though you don't know it, you are on my list of people who I send good thoughts to every day. I hope you feel that energy that I am sending your way!
I have studied natural medicine and health 22 years so if you have any issues that you want to run my way, I would be THRILLED to help you!
all the best
Michelle ; )
I'll be happy to look at the letter. Thanks for your continued confidence.
