Another Red, White and Blue Atrocity!

Strange how violently some Homeowners Associations react to any display of patriotism. But it happens over and over against across the country. Display the flag and risk verbal abuse, neighborhood shaming, fines, liens and foreclosures.

But it’s all about following the money. Give your HOA an excuse, let them believe you’ve got some equity in your home and you’ll be targeted by a rogue board for any reason, even the display of an American flag.

    After reading the comments all over the internet about this flag on the door issue, I called Kearsley Creek Townhomes and spoke to the property manager.

    This is not an HOA!

    These are rental units owned by investors and their lease agreement #19 states NOTHING can be displayed on the doors to the units. They must be solid white and nothing else. The property manager was very professional, she wishes every unit could have an American flag on it, but it’s the policy of the company she works for and so she must enforce it. She said they are not anti-American. They do have an American flag flying at the entrance. We all know that tenants must follow the rules addressed in their lease agreement. In this case, the tenant is going to be fined for not following the rules and she does not “own” the front door.
