is this true in CA?
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX rate your answer as excellent. Another question: at the same meeting, the HOA claimed to have 10 complaints about my dogs (a Bouvier des Flanders, and a large Bouvier mix). My landlord failed to notify me of said complaints, and none of them are creditable, as my dogs have not been off leash in the community in the presence of any other animals this year. The board made their decision, and further stated "the dogs must be removed immediately", without anyone to refute the complaints. The board is allowing me, via my landlord's request, to attend their "executive session" tomorrow evening to appeal their decision. My landlord will not attend the meeting, so I must prepare a request to appeal. Any advice?
Hello again from Virginia in Calif with this HOA problem. The "board" appeared to allow my landlord to appeal their decision that my dogs are a "nuisance and a danger to the community". Mock hearing, as only 2 members were present, and they paid no attention my statement that the complaints they received were specious, and pictures of my 7 yr old neighbor hugging my dogs. They claim their decision is final. No proof, board member still letting his dogs off leash...this is upsetting an so absolutely unjust. As E.Burke said "all that is required for evil to exist is for good men to do nothing". Do you have any further advice? (also, the property management representative did listen to my situation and put my issue on the agenda for the next executive session, and in a conference call with my landlord, gave me permission to attend said meeting. The "board" removed the issue from the agenda, rescinded my permission to attend, and on Aug. 5, held their 2 of 6 member kangaroo dispute resolution meeting, fully intending beforehand not to change anything).
Again, thank you.
