Could you clarify?

Is the Declaratory Judgment against you?

Is the Court now ordering you to pay the fee due?

How much is the past due fee?

Is the HOA willing to work with you in light of your dire circumstances?

Thank you for your cooperation.

It is more about HOA. NJ. An attorney for the HOA is
My name is ***** ***** I live in Robbinsville, NJ in Foxmoor Condominiums. I am currently in a legal situation with my HOA for having two small dogs in my unit, one of which is an emotional support dog. In 2014, unbeknownst to me, the HOA changed their rules on having two animals in the home. I believe they basically sent out an email changing this rule. Regardless I was unaware of this. My son and I got a mini dauchound who is our family dog. Just recently, by suggestion of my therapist, I got a personal emotional support dog named Lulu. Within a month I received a letter from the HOA asking me to remove one dog. I responded with a letter from my therapist and I received a response that they would allow the emotional support animal but that they are still enforcing the two animal rule, ultimately they are now asking I get rid of the family dog. If i wanted to fight them on this I have to notify them by Feb. 16th to schedule a mediation.According to HUD, emotional support animals are no considered “pets” but rather companions so I would think my personal emotional support animal would be exempt from being that additional dog in my home.This is huge situation for both myself and my seven year old son and I want to fight them on this but I wanted to inquire if we even stood a chance a success. I would have no problem retaining an attorney if this would help things.… read more
