    Cand,

    Consider buying a used, super nice, high quality, travel trailer with slide outs.

    People buy these new.

    To then find, they don't use them nearly as often as they thought they would and sell them for a quarter what they paid new.

    They're not some some so-called mfg. home.

    They're far, far nicer and you can buy a bit of land for one or not...plenty of nice full hook-up places to rent a spot on...

    You gonna shoot your landlord or the HOA president?

    The OP doesn't own anything involved here, and the landlord signed up for the HOA

    Holy shit the bravado in here...

    I'm making sure it is not a ploy. But I trust the owner. We have a decent relationship of almost ten years.

    We talked about buying this house and it wouldn't be the worst outcome here, just timing.

    Everybody loves HOAs until something goes sideways and then the HOA is evil. It is a recurring theme seen over and over again (yes, doubly redundant for emphasis).

    I think people tolerate HOAs.

    I get it, renters dont care for property as much as owners so the other owners in the HOA want to change that.

    The problem is all it's doing here is lowering prices due to houses on the market longer and selling for less. Basically the opposite of their intentions.

    People who buy into them tend to so because the HOA offers benefits. People buy into HOAs because they expect property values to maintain and increase. They think it is such a great deal that the HOA will make sure that their neighbors don't ruin the value of the home they just purchased. They they try park their RV camper in their driveway and learn that it isn't allowed, try to paint their house a non-approved color, put on solar panels that are not approved, etc. Then they think the HOA is terrible. The HOA was always terrible. They just weren't a problem so long as you remained in compliance.

    As the OP has learned, the rules of the HOA are not hard and fast. They can change/amend the rules and you must be in compliance with them. Why people buy property in an area that others have a say so in their business is beyond me.

    The only HOA Worth living in was one where we were on the board.

    I saw we as in several family members and it was a 6 year battle to eject the little Hitler's and get it to where people left folks alone. Those bastards actually ended up liening and owning a couple properties. Shady shit. This was in AZ in the 80s.

    Most people buy into them because it's almost the only way to buy a home in a subdivision/development today. All of the major builder set up HOA's in their developments and usually retain majority voting control in the HOA for terms up to ten years. Many have management companies manage the HOA for them. The fines they impose can be retained by the management company depending on their contract.
