Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
If there is nothing in the Bylaws or CCRs that state you have to have padding under carpets, then they can't arbitrarily impose that condition without putting it to a vote of all the members and having it pass by the required percentage of votes to impose a change.
So if they try to charge a fee, you can simply ignore it and if they tried to take legal action to enforce it, you can defend on the basis that they have no legal authority to impose a fine for not having padding since it is not required by the formally established Bylaws or CCRs.
