I live I cedars condo association in Burlington Washington.  I have been harassed for not allowing them to repair 4×4 posts that support porch roof they want to cut them off and slide pit block under it. I got a letter from structural engineer advising me to refuse to let them do this I also got letter from home inspector who said it would not pass inspection in event of a sale. What are my rights as a homeowner even though I live in HOA these are individual homes nonadjoining walls thank you

Fox Run Farms in Wilmington NC is under the Century 21-CAMS Association. So many of us wish that there was a way to have this association for their corruption. I can not going into details at this moment, but would love to hear from someone who could help give advice on what can be done.

Thank you for this time.

Our HOA is well aware of the desires of the membership in keeping our by law which states ANY HOMEOWNER whether full time or short time may run for the board of directors. A WEEK before our scheduled meeting for election they informed the members that they were told by their FMO to NOT include any membership when changing this by law to any homeowner wishing to run for the board MUST reside here full time.

What makes this worse, the subject was brought up at the last meeting and it was vehemently voted against. So they just decided to change it behind everyone’s back.
