We all know of an association who has had either a Board Member or Committee Member go way too far in attempt to enforce the Bylaws or Rules and Regulations.


One Associations Rules and Regulations states “No dead plants, coolers or indoor furniture allowed on fenced in patios”. Allow me to mention, the patios were fenced in with a 6 foot wooden privacy fence! A very “active” Board Member would take a step ladder, once a week, to see if there were any violators. What do you think? Invasion of privacy? Going too far?


Another association experienced continued vandalism inside their elevator cab. The associations had a grounds and interior committee charged with property inspections. The committee as a group, and without Board approval, installed a small hidden camera in the elevator cab to catch the vandal! Within days, the individual was identified and to everyone’s surprise it was the Board President smearing human waste in the elevator! I know, disgusting and gross! But did the committee violate any rule or regulation?


When living in an HOA or COA, where do we draw the line on what is reasonable and what is a violation of the owner’s right to quiet enjoyment?
