I have owned my home for 17 years. The HOA
property manager used to be a neighbor
and on the board and now the Property Manager for years. Many neighbors have had issues with him.
He has written letters to me and a few neighbors about mostly useless things. I have always complied. He has used and attorney against me today starts the 4th time. Recently the attorney said to cease and desist from further changes to my lawn (I had placed some decorative rock in part of the front yard 7-8 yrs. ago.) Some rock was placed approx. yrs. 14 yrs. ago.
The confusing thing is I obeyed the recent cease and desist to make any more changes.
Now the attorney letter today states I have 10 days to remove all (same issue) and to remove a tree planted 2 yrs. ago. Many neighbors have planted trees, bushes, gardens and made a lot of yard improvements without going through the architectural
committee because there has NOT ever been one. When calling to ask who is on the committee the messages are not returned with an answer.
Should not the Association
be responsible to all neighbor's equally and have everyone remove trees they planted?
Should not also each neighbor have to remove all improvements like rain drains, rock, bark, river rock, flower beds, and landscaping
What remedy is there over putting my yard back to an original situation vs. everyone else also having to do the same.
I am on social security and do not have funds to have the rock, tree, etc. removed nor will I have. I won't be able either to have funds to have the association do it.
Is not there a law in real estate
where after such an amount of time things are considered a part of the property?
