What is the cost for our chat?
JA: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Lawyer. All of this is 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so you can get a refund if you're not happy for any reason.
Customer: Okay. I am secretary of a small (33 home) JOA in Florida. Our CC&Rs require commercial vehicles to be parked in an enclose garage. Commercial vehicle is not defined in the CC&Rs, but rather defers to the definition in "the Florida statutes". we have a homeowner
who has a pick-up truck that has an advertising wrap covering the whole truck. He does not own the company being advertised, and uses his vehicle as a personal truck. The HOA
Board has sent him a letter asking that he remove the wrap, or garage his vehicle. He refuses claiming his vehicle does not meet the statutory definition of commercial vehicle, and the CC&Rs do not specifically prohibit signage on vehicles. He's threatening to pursue this through the courts. I personally think he will probably win, but our Board is split. I am just looking for an opinion as to our ability to enforce our very nonspecific language.
JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?
Customer: Florida, and no idea how old it is. I know he's had it since about 2004.
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: Several letters between the HOA board and the owner, (2 date back to 2003 an 2004) and one letter from an attorney that our Board president consulted. These letters told the owner to garage his vehicle or remove the wrap.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
