I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.
What state is the condo located in? Is there anything in the bylaws or rules that gives the HOA authority to approve leases?
Is your community covered under the Housing for Older Persons Act?
It's illegal to remove them for being Latin - that's a violation of the Fair Housing Act. The tenants could sue the HOA for removing them on that basis. Condos aren't silent. You can hear your neighbors. The HOA would have to prove some valid reason for not renewing the lease to avoid a discrimination suit, meaning they'd need some evidence that the neighbors are actually violating your local noise ordinances and have failed to correct the problem after being notified about it.
Did you have any other questions about this?
