Our homeowners association refuses to give us keys that

Our homeowners association refuses to give us keys that access common areas such as the the pool, Jacuzzi, etc that require a key to access those areas. They require us to give a copy of our drivers license, and in my opinion I believe this is an invasion of privacy Since they can provide us a third-party vendors and would not be liable for identity theft. Am I right in saying this? Do they have the right to request a drivers license to give me keys to a common area for which I pay HOA fees for? I live in California.

My real estate broker was accosted by one of my late

My real estate broker was accosted by one of my late father's neighbors as she was showing the property with a client. Our agent wanted me to write a letter to the neighbor. I was wondering if what he did as I describe in the letter below is called "derogatory of title"? I'm quite sure I didn't hear it correctly from the zoning attorney. Could you please comment about the language of the deed and if I am correct?Tortured NeighborSsssssssssnumberIntruder InterfererSaw Mill RoadRivertowns, usaAugust 3, 2016Dear Darndest,My father, the Architect, bought his property in 1978 and his deed gave him the right to pass over “Parcel C” to get to his garage. It's a right of way that was reserved by Woody Sawmiller in 1956 when he sold “Parcel C” to his Rivertown neighbors. In addition, Woody Sawmiller also reserved his right to cross over some Rivertown land belonging to his neighbor, which I presume now belongs to you, to repair the dam upstream from “Parcel C” which was part of Woody's saw mill. These two rights of way were passed on to my father when he bought the property. Now, after he died, these became the rights of the estate.I think that if you look at the wording below, there are two rights of way. There is also a provision that prevents the road on Parcel C to be made higher.”This deed is given on the express condition that the Releaseesshall at no time permit any road, built on said parcel to be higherthan 19.25 feet below the plate line of the roof of the buildingnow located on Parcel "B" on said map or any replacement thereof .Said parcel is released subject to the reservation of a rightof way to the Releasor, his heirs and assigns over said Parcel “C”and so much of land· of the Releasee Louise Murray lying Northerlythereof as may be necessary to repair the dam owned by the Releasorprovided that any damage to the roadway or bridge' arising out ofsaid use shall be repaired by the Releasor.I know that some years ago, your Attorney Lier had the opinion that there was only one right of way and it was to cross your land to repair the dam. I welcome you to share the above language with him in order to see what he thinks now. I think that everyone will conclude that:1.) Woody Sawmiller reserved two rights of way.2.) The first right of way is to cross over Parcel “C” at any time.3.) The second right of way is to cross over the land of your Predecessor in Title to fix the dam.4.) The regrading of the road on “Parcel C” in order to make the roadway a higher was and is forbidden.You are making a mistake by putting a no trespassing sign with a wire preventing access to the Estate's garage. Also, you should not interfere with the real estate agents when they come down Parcel C with prospective buyers, as you did last Thursday. As agents of the Estate, they have an absolute right to walk down “Parcel C” to access my late father's property.When the Conglomerate or the owners of “Parcel C”, raised the road in August of 2015, evidently, they did so, without the needed Inland Wetland approval. The boulders that were misguidedly placed at the entrance of my Dad's garage, earlier that year, prevent him and us now from driving in.I want to be good neighbors. So, please give me a call at(###) ###-####so that we can discuss.I am enclosing: Buttery's deed to Wilton neighbors, my father's deed and Map 2589 which depicts “Parcel C” and its relationship to the Estate's garage which is to the North and the “building” on Parcel B which is to the South which the deeds refer to.Very truly yours,*****CC: Estate's LawyerZoning LawyerAttorney LierOffended Real Estate Lady from International RealtyMain Real estate Lady International RealtyBrother.
