HOA Gets a Bit Silly Over HVAC Issue

Once we were finished, I told them to call me immediately if they got any more mail from the HOA

I certainly don’t mind being a part of something that ends up being good for the whole. Like being a member of some professional groups. I do it because I like to lend my voice to the common good of all of us. So, I understand the dynamic of how groups can act as one to the benefit of all. This is why the way the HOA is reacting to a minor HVAC issue just blows my mind. I understand the we all want to protect our property values by agreeing to maintain reasonable standards. However, the HOA board just went after some truly good people over the most insignificant detail. We have some elderly neighbors who are being threatened with ridiculous fines over the color of the HVAC condenser cabinet outside their home. I saw the letter and it was beyond harassment. These are two fine people who have to live on a very fixed income. Replacing an HVAC component because of color is beyond ludicrous. Their heating and cooling unit is far from outdated. It just so happens that the HVAC cabinet outside is in direct sun all day. So, it bleached out. Together, we went online to find out what color the HVAC cabinet was initially. We got the color so my son and I painted it for them. Once we were finished, I told them to call me immediately if they got any more mail from the HOA. I’m a lawyer and it would actually thrill me no end to do a little threatening of my own.
