The park has a general rule that you need to provide request to Home owners association, but they do not abide by that rule and most people do what they feel is adequate. To submit each landscaping action would overwhelm the two people that work for the association on site. I believe the concept reasonable cause would call the landowners' action wrong.

If there is an actual rule that a request must be submitted and granted, then legally they could pursue action if a resident didn't follow the rules.

.

However, if the owner wanted to try and enforce the rules now, the person could claim that this was "selective enforcement" and therefore illegal discrimination. In order for the rules to apply, they have to apply to everyone evenly..

.

But that would require a court case for both sides to make their arguments to a judge with the judge making the final decision. So the person may decide that they really don't want to fight that battle, even if they have a good chance of winning..

.

thanks
