A few in our neighborhood, over the years, have asked to be able to deviate from the allowed garage door height, in order to put larger veticles inside. They have all been refused. One had to remove his unauthorized build and bring it into compliance. So when I put my request in (late 2015) , for increasing the garage height and adding doors that were 10', 2 1/2 ' over the limit, I too was expecting a rejection and a fight.
As soon as I turned the paperwork in, it was approved. They advised that because of the necessaty due to my disabilities they couldn't deny the changes.
Local realtor advised me that when I am ready to sell, that there are buyers who will definitely want to buy, since they can't remodel or build a new garage, with what I already have. And HOA can't change an existing approved structure.
If I were a betting man I would have bet that is how that would turn out. Again the ADA is pretty sacred territory......So now you need an additional waiver for the new van?
Thank you for serving! (which is an additional reason I find HOA's so offensive).
Lots of HOA's just blow smoke to see if you will bend to their wishes
Does your HOA have a record of spending money on attorneys to get things done?
If not, I may be inclined to just ignore them
Yes, ... but no. And a BIG NO, indeed. Regardless of any HOA agreement, Federal, then State, laws trump any -ANY- contractual agreement. ALL HOA's must be in compliance, or they may face the consequences. That fact is exactly why I had previously asked if the right-of-ways were fully owned by the HOA. If so, then you are at their mercy; if not, tell them to pound sand. Always be prepared to exercise your rights.
Basically: You really need to find out who owns the rights to the road.
Best of luck.
