I bought my home 5 years ago. It has a fenced patio built 18 years ago. It was approved by the board of directors at that time, after the City of Boca Raton (Florida) gave the corresponding permit. The fence protects me and my privacy, due to the fact that my living room, and the 2 bedrooms are facing the street. I got a final letter of violation from the HOA
asking me to remove the fence and the patio. I asked their authorization to replace it, if they don't look good enough. But they confirmed to me that patio and fence have to be removed. I am really afraid of doing it. My house is located just in front of a bus stop, where many times undesirable people hang around.
