My HOA wants to install a permanent basketball hoop near my

My HOA wants to install a permanent basketball hoop near my unit which is on a cul de sac. According to the documents I found some wording that may prevent them from installing the hoop. I know when we vote for directors we need 3/4 of the community to vote. If they are proposing changes to the conservation area would they also need 3/4 of the community's approval?Here is what I found in the deed restriction document:5.28 Permanent basketball hoops are not permitted per our documents5.30 states (a) the purpose of this deed restriction over the Conservation Areas is to prevent any use of the conservation areas that will impact or interfere with the environment value of these areas.(b) Any activity in or use of the conservation areas inconsistent with the purpose of this deed restriction is prohibited. Expressly prohibits construction or placing of buildings, roads, signs or other structures on or above the ground.(iii) removing or destroying trees, landscape and (iv) excavating dredging or removing loam, peat, gravel soil rock or other material substances in such a manner as to affect the surface.(Viii) acts of uses detrimental to the preservation of the structural integrity, or physical appearance of sites of property of historical, architectural, archaeological or cultural significance.5.32 Ramps, no skateboards, bicycle ramps or similar structure shall be permanently installed or maintained overnight on any portion of any lot located forward of the rear wall of the dwelling or adjacent to any side street.To put in the hoop they would have to dig up part of sidewalk, or grass area.

My daughter owns a small condo in the city of Milan Michigan

My daughter owns a small condo in the city of Milan Michigan now for about 2years, It is mostly owned by older owners. She is a young single mother of an 8 year old son. Last summer she was harassed daily-weekly from her son riding his bike, roller skating, they even went as far as to put a sign on her door telling her where the parks were. He is there 4 days out of the week. The first beautiful day of the year today and her son was approached by an elder saying "he was breaking the law" riding his bike. My daughter has asked all owners in the meeting last year if there is a problem of any kind with them and her son to come to her. I feel so bad that it is starting all over again and it is not even spring. How is she protected from this harassment?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Thank YOU her mom and his grandmother, Ms. Jo MesserJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: Michigan.

Timeshares purchased one in 1995 and one in 1998 both in

Timeshares purchased one in 1995 and one in 1998 both in CaboSan Lucas, Mexico. My mother no longer wants to pay the yearly maintenance fees which are running about 1820. USD per year for both.She contacted them and told them this and they are saying she must pay 500.00 US for each property to be free of them, or otherwise they will tack on 5% for each month that the maintenance fees are overdue. 2017 fees were due in Jan. I think this is ridiculous, as both were purchased in cash money in a lump sum and the yearly maintenance fees plus the fees to put the time into a "space bank" so that different locations could be used and paying a fee to get this time out to be able to use it. Seems like a complete money grab to me. I want to know if she must pay this and if she doesn't what are the consequences?

Per mediation agreement dated Sept. 2016, one of my sisters

Per mediation agreement dated Sept. 2016, one of my sisters - the executor - could choose the agent and finalize the selling of our home. Another sister and I, who had lived in the house for many years, could still live there rent free until the house would sell. In October 2016, the house went on the market and the real estate agent agreed that only I could approve the house showings with a 24 hour notice request. This was set up with the Central Showing Service. My sister, the executor, is getting frustrated and is trying to take over all the showings and authorization for them.I need to know if she can do that and what are my rights as the person living in the house.

We purchased a timeshare (points) no physical residence, in

we purchased a timeshare (points) no physical residence, in Nov 2012 for $14,360. We paid $220.80 per month and were NEVER able to use the points because we have to pay maintenance cost as well. We both lost our jobs and couldn't keep up with the payments. We are now trying to purchase our first home and found that this is on our credit and is keeping us from purchasing. I called Diamond Resorts and they said the loan is cancelled, not in collections, but if i wanted it removed, i'd need to pay them the $12,900.00 balance, which we can't do. I need help
