For the last 20 years of my life, I have resided in a rural area with a lake household that is farther than a quarter mile from any other neighbor.
I began to expect the level of privacy this lake household afforded me, even when I knew that moving away to a new location would bring its own set of challenges.
In the past my largest complication was the amount of time it took me to get to a grocery store from my household. By contrast, now I’m packed tight into a subdivision that is walking distance from my city’s downtown burrough. Everything I could possibly need is close plus within my grasp. On the flip side, I am dealing with a homeowner’s association for the first time plus it’s as frustrating as others make it out to be. My grass service business totally shafted me a single month while it was the late Summer rainy season, leaving me with knee high grass for the course of a week. Despite giving the HOA a heads up about the situation plus explaining to them how I was totally searching for a new landscaper, they still chose to supply me a fine. Now they’re attempting to fine me by claiming I left my garage door open for an entire afternoon, despite my own security footage showing otherwise. I pushed back, but now they’re threatening me on a legal basis. Little do they know, a single one of my closest friends is an aggressive civil attorney. She has fought numerous cases of mine plus gets a joy out of usurping overreaching homeowners’ associations. Not only did she take on my case, but he’s doing it for no cost to help fulfill her pro bono quota with the state Bar Association. They don’t actually realize what’s about to happen once we finally reach our court date.
