Thank you so very much for your response. I presumed that was the answer, but the "Condominium Blue Book (2018) did not make the time constraints clear enough.I have a follow-up question: Situation: Two homes in the development have radio antenna installed on their property in clear violation of the CC&R. Reference – Section 2.16 states in part ”…no external radio antenna…including ham radio antenna shall be installed on any lot.”
Home #1 installed the antenna circa 1997, without advance approval. The property is located on the extreme eastern boundary and has no neighbors behind, but a neighbor on each side with very limited visibility. The antennae are clearly visible from homes opposite this home. The design is minimal and have been in place without a complaint by an association resident or AC member.
Home #2 very recently installed a much more sophisticated antenna that is very visible to neighbors in any direction and is generally offensive. Advance approval was not requested prior to installation. Very shortly after installation a complaint was registered with the AC. Two representatives have been charged with verbally addressing this subject with the homeowner/ham radio operator and requesting placement of an attic antenna or removal of the offending antenna.Question: One AC member believes that a waiver may be granted to Home #1 (location, design of antennae, and lack of complaints) due to the significantly different locations of the properties and the design of the antenna. Can such a position be successfully defended based on Selective Enforcement?

Thank you for the information.

Kindly give me a few minutes to review the information that you have provided and prepare my response.

Thank you for your patience.

Kindly note that I am working with multiple customers on the site and I respond to posts in order that they are received. If you have not heard from me it does not mean that I have ignored your post. It just means that I am currently working with another customer.

Thank you for your understanding.

Question: One AC member believes that a waiver may be granted to Home #1 (location, design of antennae, and lack of complaints) due to the significantly different locations of the properties and the design of the antenna. Can such a position be successfully defended based on Selective Enforcement?

Response: No. It does not matter that one is visible and the other is not visible or that one has received a complaint and the other has not. The thing common to both is that each was installed without approval of the Association and thus must be dealt with equally. If a waiver is going to be granted to Home #1, then the Association cannot in good faith impose fine on Home #2 for violation of the same provision of the CC&R.

A 5-star positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating. However, that is how I get paid for answering questions on this site. Thank you for your cooperation.
