Thank you for using Just Answer. I want to provide you the best service I can. Please feel free to ask any follow up questions you have.
I am an attorney with 30 years of experience; I hope to provide you information that will help you in resolving your question.
Neither the HOApresident nor any other member or staff of the HOA have the authority to enter your property and remove your personal property. Doing so would be a trespass for which you can bring civil action against the person who does so.
You may also be able to file a criminal complaint in trespass, but the ikelihood is that law enforcement would decline to act and would tell you that this is a civil matter.
If you are violating HOA bylaws (to whcih you are contractually bound) the HOA may assess a fine against you (if the bylaws grant such authority) OR they can bring an action against you to seek an injunction against the offending conduct. You would be entitled to answer the complaint and appear in court to assert why the pergola cover is NOT aviolation of the bylaws.
I want you to be comfortable and satisfied with my attempt to assist you. Please, if you have ANY follow up questions, feel free to ask. Please note that I am generally unavailable Friday evening through Sunday.
I hope the information I have provided is useful to you and that I have earned a positive rating from you. It costs you nothing extra, and is the only way I get credit for my attempt to assist you.
If you are dissatisfied with my response PLEASE let me know before giving me a negative review so that I may try to be of better assistance. Or if you prefer, let me know and I can “Opt Out” and your question can be re-posted without additional cost to you. I will be fair to you and only ask the same from you.
