Swell.

You could always sell the strip to the neighbor, or, even better, put an 8' fence right next to his house!

I don't think they allow fences here certainly not privacy ones.

DAMN HOAs!

That would be kind of mean to do to the neighbor though, put up a big fence right by his house.

I don't want to live in a world where spite fences are banned.

Anyone know where to buy beeswax, hand dipped candlesticks 1" Dia. In white or ivory? I have natural color ones currently and I would prefer them in white or ivory.

I don't want rolled ones, because I think they are ugly.

You seem to be able to craft anything on your own, make some candles!

I plan to craft them with my Amex.

It's weird because as I understand it the HOA no longer exists in this development but the rules continue to be enforced by the town. I was told fences are allowed but only if they are under a certain height and if they are over you have to get approval from the town first.

You should get a lawyer. Not sure how the HOA entity can cease to exist and then a different entity can come in to enforce the rules. I mean, if you think of deed restrictions, you can break every one and nothing will happen unless a neighbor brings suit against you.

Oh, fine. Thanks for ruining our legal slappyfight.

Find a pet hippie and have him make them.

I want them to smell good, not like a hippie.

Thats a little strange, as a true HOA has to be registered with the state I believe. Since it has the authority to asses fines and create taxable items, it has be recognized. Plus, with their being a common area component, someone has to maintain it. I am sure there is a process for dissolving one, but not sure if dissolved vs. ignored is the better way to go.

Having said that, an HOA can be more restrictive than local municipal law as they are generally created as PUD's which entitles them to their own zoning/ordinances, but not less restrictive unless it was granted as part of the development.

Lastly, a HOA can be a good thing. Yeah, they are a pain in the ass and breeding grounds for mini dictators to bust your ass about having an american flag too large, but when you need them, they are invaluable, they keep your property values up (allegedly) by maintaining common areas, and if you've ever been to a planned sub where there is no HOA/restrictions, it looks terrible. Call it a necessary evil.
