I have an RV that is parked in my side yard behind a gate.

Customer Question

Hello, I have an RV that is parked in my side yard behind a gate. You can still see the top half of the RV above my gate. My HOA is saying this is a violation and that I will be fined $50 initially and then $10 dollars a day. Is this legal? I own the property and the RV is behind my gate...it is not on the street or in my drive way.
JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state the association is in?
Customer: Livermore, California
JA: Has any paperwork been filed?
Customer: I was sent an email.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: The email is a courtesy reminder.

Such penalties are only valid if the rule is contained in their rules and disclosed and the fees are reasonable. Practically I would ask to see the rule and if confirmed comply to avoid escalation and dispute. Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding "yes" or "acceptable"
