In my parents neighborhood so many people broke a little rule here and there now the bylaws are worthless. My dad was on the board and warned them this would happen but he did not really care for them to start with.
One time exception to the rule eh? What are you going to tell his next door neighbor when he decides to put up the Vietnamese flag on pole too?

No exceptions! You either change the bylaws, move out, sue or stfu.

I agree. Making exceptions only opens the floodgates for more "exceptions", and then where do you draw the line? HOA's may be a pain it's up to you to know what you're getting in to before you buy.

Good question , as I do not know if the HOA's have any legal authority . If Col. Barefoot were 60 yrs old I could see the HOA caring about this , but he is 90 and I understand most people cannot see the flag , or flagpole unless you are in almost directly in front of the house . As far as someone flying another flag < ussr/france > , this is the USA and our flag is Red White and Blue .

Re: Col. Van T. Barfoot vs. the HOA

EITM had this story about a week or so ago, and they had a president of an HoA call in to answer the question about what if he doesn't pay the fine. Basically, they put a lien on his property when he dies. They get their money.

Depending on the HOA bylaws, the HOA can put a lien on your house until the fines are paid.

Yup you can not sell your home until all your fines are paid up and the issues are resolved.

HOA's are only as good the folks that run them.

I live in a townhouse and I think the HOA is usefully, we have some orginally owners left in our development who bought their home for like 90K or 100K, they now sell for 275k-300K, and they are not doing the up keep. There is like three of them left and you can point them out just by standing in the street. I guess it is a money issue for them, every one else has replaced roofs, painted, repaired siding, cleaned the brick, etc...not them though. I know the HOA is on them and I have seen all of them starting to do stuff.

If you hate your HOA then I suggest you join them or start attending meetings. If you don't like HOA's then don't move into a neigborhood that has one. In MD at least you have I belive 10 days to read over the HOA rules and if you don't like them you can back right out of the deal. The one problem is if you live i nan area like NOVA it is going to be hard to find a non-HOA hood.

Damn ain't that the truth right there.

We haven't had any bad experiences with our HOA... yet. But we've certainly heard our share of nightmare stories.

Exactly. HOAs in my experience are pains in the ass not because of their very existence and purpose but because the people who run them are jackasses. It's like universal. You have to be a douche to be on the board. The problem here isn't the rules its that they decided to not let him fly the flag. They should have just let him. If others complained you print out his wiki and tell them to spin. But since they are hellbent on enforcing the rules then he shouldn't get special treatment. It would just be bad now.

Re: Col. Van T. Barfoot vs. the HOA

I have one of those neighbors which having HOA would be nice. This dude left a ladder leaning and extended to his roof of his 2 stry home for 2 1/2 years. His fence is falling down which I keep putting back up so I don't have to look at the crap in his yard. He has a new riding lawn mower but has not used it in 3 months and the two other broken down lawn mowers are sitting in their yard where they probably broke down. The only good news is that his back yard backs up to our side yard and we only have one window on that side of the house to see his crap. If I'm correct he is unemployeed and his car is sitting there when I leave for work and when I return so he has plenty of time to work in his yard. Him in his wife have spent the past 3 weekends putting up christmas stuff but they have not touched the yard. Lazy people should be forced to rent. LOL
