As if you didn’t need one more reason to never ever buy into an HOA!
The zoning department in Chesterfield County, Virginia has filed suit against the Edgehill Condominium Association for massively ignoring county zoning and building laws. Usually, Homeowners Associations sue their own members for not properly maintaining their units. But finally….finally, a zoning department is actually doing its job and forcing an association board to clean up its own dirty work.
City and County building codes are far superior and far more fair than a Homeowners Association throwing around its tyrannical edicts against homeowners it presumes to be guilty of one violation or another. Now, a zoning board is finally doing its lawful duty… suing an HOA board for misconduct.
Sure, the individual homeowners will end up getting stuck with the tab. They always do. But in this case the homeowners won’t get stuck with phony fines, liens and artificially jacked up legal fees.
