Homeowners in the South Seas Condominium on Marco Island, Florida, may soon have to pay a hefty special assessment because of a particularly boneheaded decision by their HOA.
The Feds have consistently said that service dogs are covered under the ADA. An HOA doesn’t get to claim they are pets, if the dog is actually performing services for a disabled person. But this particular HOA obviously doesn’t ‘get it.’ They will.
It’s pretty amazing to see the way some neighborhoods tear themselves apart.
The latest goofball story comes from Lake Asbury, Florida. The HOA is threatening to foreclose on the homes of 26 families because they don’t want to pay a dues increase of $50. The HOA needs the money to help maintain docks and boat ramps on the lake. Fifty bucks seems pretty trivial, but the homeowners are taking it to court.
In the meantime, the anger, the frustration, the hatred has made Lake Asbury a pretty attractive place to live, right?
