My question is about condominium by-laws. The Association

Good morning. My question is about condominium by-laws. The Association where I am an owner adopted/amended a by-law that prohibits persons with a felony to own or live there. There are at least two residents with felonies currently residing there who purchased before the by-law was changed/added. Can my Association legally prevent a new resident with a felony from living with me, in my Condominium?Thank you, ***** *****

My home purchased in 1989 was surrendered in a 2010 Chp 13

My home purchased in 1989 was surrendered in a 2010 Chp 13 BK. I moved my family out of the property in 2009 under threat of forclosure, trustee sale, and eviction. The house has remained vacant (to the best of my knowledge) since then. I later learned that the bank didn't go through with foreclosure back in 2010 even though a trustee sale was scheduled. County records show Wells as the owner. Wells Fargo still views me as owner of the property and is going through the foreclosure process again. I feel Wells is being aggressive going after me, knowing that I've just completed my Chp 13 payments and am simply trying to move forward with my life. What can I do to clear my credit? Do I have a case against Wells?

Not sure what type of law protects me regarding my Emotional

Not sure what type of law protects me regarding my Emotional Support Animal and harassment by neighbors and the HOA Board of Directors. Here's the story. I live in Oregon. I moved into my new neighborhood two years ago with my dog, a Black Lab. I asked before buying my house if my dog was permitted because he is larger than the 50 pound limit. I was told by the HOA President and my realtors that several residents have dogs this larger or larger so it is not a problem, as long as I manage my dog. I recently registered my dog as an Emotional Support Animal as well since I take him to work too. I am the only member of our 40 home neighborhood who keeps my dog on leash. I am also the only one who properly disposes of his dog poop. The other home owners allow their dogs to run free and they use a shovel to scoop dog poop and toss it in the river. A couple of weeks ago, the HOA President gave me a warning that my dog was off leash one day and barked at a guest of a neighbor. It is true that a friend of mine allowed my dog out for a minute without being on his leash, but usually this is not the case. When I protested, the HOA President told me that he had to do it. He also said he had never issued a warning to anyone in the neighborhood, ever for the 25 years he has been the HOA President. He also saw nothing wrong with the other dogs being off leash or oversized. In fact the incoming HOA President has two dogs, both over 50 pounds and never on leash. A couple of days ago I learned that the HOA and some neighbors were sending emails back and forth trying to decide how to get rid of me and my dog. I am not included in these emails. I am not entirely sure why I am being singled out except that I am one of only three Democrats in the neighborhood and I am a single woman. I have been yelled at and derided by several of the male residents who tell me to leave running the neibhorhood to the men. For example I have complained about the lack of care of the animals (leashes and dog poop). My neighbors also throw their barbecue left overs and dried up potted plants into the Columbia River. We live in a marina so I am appalled at the lack of sensitivity for the environment. Thoughts?
