Every community has a HOA, and we pay for it with county property tax. It's called Code Enforcement.

Mostly, these laws deal with very valid safety issues (Like the overgrown fire hazards etc), but they also deal with goofy stuff too.

My trailer is parked illegally in my driveway. No one has complained, so the county doesn't care. Whats wierd is, if a new neighbor moves in and cries.. I have to move it.

I and it were already here, and they can see it in full view when they buy. It's not a suprise.

Thats not right. It's on MY property, not the county street and creates no specific hazard for anyone. It also isn't falling to bits and isn't an eyesore.

I have seen some HOAs that will not allow a CAR to be parked in the driveway. It's like a ghost town in those tracts. No sign of life out front, no individualizm.. no character.

I agree tho, that piling dead cars, parts, building materials and other "junk" in ones front yard does effect others from a monetary standpoint. What I have in the back that no one can see, isn't illegal, toxic or hazaradous, is my business.. not the nieghbors.

I have nieghbors that call the county for any little thing.. on everyone. (Accept they like my trailer.. odd) They are here about 3 times a year. It's a weekend house only for them.

I, like Byron, have chosen to forgo the use of a Home Owner's Association, in the selection of my primary residence. But, let me play Devil's advocate, here. I believe that that is a similar function to that of the Moderators of this Website.

We derive great benefit from giving up the "right":
1. to tell jokes in extremely bad taste,
2. to flame one another and get angry with one another,
3. to prostelitize our specific Religious beliefs,
4. to hawk our wares to a captive audience without contributing the true cost of this forum.

Persons who choose to live under a (properly administered) Home Owner's Association do get value in exchange for what they "give up." I don't begrudge them that. Many persons in that situation get to live in property that is in better condition than my sorry slum. I have no one to blame for it's condition but myself... But I also belong to a community that has the equivalent of of a Home Owner's Association, [b]this Website. And we are all the richer for it.

Where we live, we elect 7 board members to form our HOA from among our neighbours each year at our annual general meeting. Not without it's challenges but works fairly well for the most part. At least each homeowner knows they could stand for election if they felt they could better contribute.
