just a quick question about the definition of a violation. I understand what it means, but my question is more about a specific ending.
JA: Where is the property located?
Customer: So, it is understood that long grass is a violation. But when the homeowner
cuts the grass and comes into compliance, is that violation complete? or can the HOA
determine this is an "on-going" problem and skip the warning letter and go strait to a fine? In North Carolina
JA: Has any paperwork been filed?
Customer: Just a notice of hearing. At the conclusion of the hearing, there could be a fine imposed, but I did not receive a warning letter for this violation.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I'm not worried about the fine, as the violation has been corrected. I am more interested in the fact that the HOA thinks they can skip the process of issuing a warning letter; because they believe that a violation letter containing a warning needs only be sent once, and that every future violation for the same offense (even after the violation has been corrected) is actually a continuation of the first offense. So is this one offense or multiple individual violations that have a beginning and and end - upon resolving the violation.
