Customer Question

Hi there,
Have a quick question for you - HOA architectural committee forces me to replace the balcony. The balcony looks perfectly fine to me . ( I live in the Bay Area, CA )
Any chance for me to stop them ?
Thank you very much in advance !

just want to add - it is a standard balcony on the second floor as in all the other units, no custom work done.

We would need to see what your governing documents state with regard to what the power has the power to do. Do you have a copy of your governing documents? Do they provide a reason to change the balcony?

All common interest developments in California are governed by the Davis-Stirling Act http://www.davis-stirling.com/MainIndex/Davis-StirlingAct/tabid/427/Default.aspx#axzz3poX9F9Ak

The Board is bound their governing documents and the laws that govern.
