1. Discriminate indiscriminately. Your homeowners association board might like to play at being tyrants, but here’s a line it can’t cross: the Fair Housing Act.
2. String you out on the (clothes)line. Nineteen states have laws on the books to prohibit a funny HOA restriction: your right to “solar drying.” (That’s a fancy term for using a clothesline.)
3. Fine you for fun. Fines are the lifeblood of a malicious HOA—and we cannot, unfortunately, tell you that they’re blatantly illegal. But they “must be set forth in the association’s rules and bylaws,” says Barbara Jordan, a real estate lawyer in Columbus, OH.
4. Make decisions on the fly. Your community’s HOA treasurer can’t suddenly decide she hates pink mailboxes. Next time Shirley Homeowner comes over complaining, practice these magic words: “Is that mentioned in the CC&Rs?”
5. Demand you take down your dish. Your cable TV decisions are protected, thanks to the FCC’s Over-the-Air Reception Devices Rule. No matter how ugly your HOA thinks your space-gray satellite dish is, the board members can’t force you to take it down.
6. Nix native plants. Not all states protect your right to grow an environmentally friendly garden abundant with native plants. But if you’re in Texas or California, you can push back if the board’s not savvy with agave.
7. Keep you out of court. Snippy HOAs might make you think they’re above the law—but if you’re truly in a bind, you can challenge that assertion. Chances are good (although not certain) that you’ll have the upper hand in a proper court of law, Smith says, especially if the board of directors acted in an underhanded manner.
8. Beat you down. No matter how many letters and fines the board throws at you, you still have rights. “Show up,” Jordan says. “Go to the meetings. Be on record as objecting to the issues.
