Some HOAs wont sell without approving the buyer.

Check your fine print.

No sympathy.

You couldn't figure out I was ing in that thread? I'm glad someone read my jibber jabber. That thread's a lost cause purse swinging fest that needed some comic relief.

Anyways, unfortunately, our modern civilized "I'll sue you" society has lead to many unfortunate restrictions implemented at every level of our lives.

The HOA sounds like they own the street in question, in which case, they are fully justified in taking whatever action protects the HOA. Sorry, that's just the way it is.

If they dont own the street, then it's still a dick move, but there might be something of a CoC within the HOA itself that they could for you for an fraction of.

I'd imagine it depends on what the local and state laws say about the limits/reach of power of HOAs.

ALWAYS read the HOA contract before you decide to purchase a house. ALWAYS read the HOA agreement before you sign it (if you decide to in the first place. I don't believe they can force you to be a member). ALWAYS read the fine print.

I normally hate HOAs but I don't see a problem with banning kids from playing in the street

This. I used to live in Lakewood Ranch, different development and HOA though. They do indeed get to decide who you can sell to. All of them are ridiculous. Mine had a rule that you couldn't own more then 3 goldfish, or 1 bird, amongst other idiotic rules.

DING! This is no doubt the reason - covering their ass from the inevitable lawsuit. Our HOA did the same thing years ago. I was on the Board, andvotedno - we played in the street when I was a kid all the time, but we did have the brains to realize that cars had the right of way - but the specter of getting sued and having that liability passed on to every other owner was the driving factor.

The fact that you even have to entertain their stupid ideas is ludicrous, IMO. Imagine if they were to sway a few others to their side, and one of your friends moved out of the hood? Then it would be hell and you could do nothing about it.

In theory, I see what you are saying. In my 'hood, though, it would be tougher than that. There are about 40 families that are pretty close friends and it doesn't look like anyone is going anywhere anytime soon, if ever. So there is that. It also takes a full vote to change anything, so some committee can't just start changing rules. That vote can only take place at the annual meeting.

I guess the bottom line is that if the HOA is set up properly, it can be a good thing for the community regarding property values and be prevented from a takeover by a small group of 'tards. My 'hood is run by a large group of drunks. So we're gtg

That is great!
I grew up on a block where we painted a 100 yard football field on the street and not a sinlge parent cared or complained as we had 51 kids.
People who attempted to drive through quickly learned not to turn down our block.

Things recently proposed (serious):

* a pet registry (so as to bill all pet owners every time one has an accident in the hallway)
* force all units to replace hardwood floors with carpeting
* security cameras everywhere (to be managed solely by the person who volunteered to pay for the Costco security package)
* replacing the traditional buzzer system with smartphone capable clients (nice in practice, bad for security and bad for the 50% population who is over 60)

Last year, a non-board member who lives below me called the property management firm and asked them to tell me I need to lose weight because she can hear me walking upstairs. I am 220lbs. She is 300lbs+. Property management company politely declined to do so on her behalf, but I know the owner, and he told me anyway.

It's funny until they foreclose on your house for $300.

what do they do when you refuse to obey their illegal demands?


and for the original story... interesting. they have bylaws to prevent children from playing in the street, but none to control the speeding?
