Generally, your Homeowners Association is here to stay. You may not remember being notified that you were joining all the HOA fun that glorious day you bought your home and signed a mountain of paperwork (and read none of it). However, that’s your HOA now.
So how does one cope with their Homeowners Association? Well, you can find a current copy of your deed restrictions and get yourself familiar with twenty-or-so pages of mind-numbing legalese. You could acquaint yourself with your neighbors and swap HOA war stories. There are also regularly scheduled meetings to attend where the HOA Board, believe it or not, welcomes input from its follow homeowners. That’s right, the board is generally comprised of other owners (a lot like you).
When it comes to HOA issues, we encourage self-help. Many times, problems between homeowners and the HOA are resolved by sitting down and simply talking things out. Other problems, like a cease and desist letter from the HOA Board’s attorney, might require some professional attention.
