According to a rule laid about by the HOA in our planned community, homeowners need to keep the Heating plus Air Conditioning device from view, but all residential Heating plus Air Conditioning has to be screened from street level view or be in the back of a fenced in yard, but why? This is what I’ve been asking myself for the past couple of months as I try to help my friend deal with an obstinate HOA board! I just can’t seem to get an answer as to why our heating plus cooling device has to be hidden from view.
I mean, my buddy and I live in the south so it’s no secret that my buddy and I all rely on A/C.
And while our winter time weather is quite mild, some heating from the heat pump sure does come in handy at times, then but this Heating plus Air Conditioning device has to be hidden from view plus I’m stumped; My neighbors are older plus they use a shrubbery maintenance to take care of their property. It’s usually quite fantastic however this Spring, the shrubbery crew break back a privacy hedge that was screening the Heating plus Air Conditioning equipment. And they break it back a bit too short. It didn’t take 24 hours before these poor folks were being threatened with fines from the HOA, however that was almost two months ago plus the issue is almost moot now that the hedge has new growth. But instead of being logical or sufficient, the HOA wants to force these people to pay. And as a lawyer, that makes me crazy. I told my neighbors not to pay a dime plus that I’d be their advocate. There is a public HOA meeting next week plus those HOA board members are going to get an earful.
