Why would anyone live under those rules? Here are some good reasons for an HOA.

Car on LawnIn researching topics for this blog, or just when I tell people that my practice is focused on representing homeowners associations, I often hear some variation of “why would anyone live under those rules”.  Today’s Orlando Sentinel answers the same question.  Aside from the fact that in today’s market you often cannot avoid living in a homeowners association, the best reason to live in an HOA is that they protect property values by maintaining the look and aesthetics of a community.  Enforcement of CC&Rs can help when your neighbors don’t mow their lawn or let it go brown in front of their home. In addition, homeowners associations often provide social areas such as swimming pools, tennis courts and a clubhouse for socials, and are an effective alternative to calling city code enforcement when your neighbor parks his car on his front lawn. What positive experiences have you had living in an HOA?
