HOAs From Hell

New, 15 comments

As you may already know, homeowners' associations can wreck havoc on a person's life if they don't act (and pay) accordingly. And the Associated Press reports that more than 80 percent of newly built homes (24.4 million homes) belong to association communities, so it's not as easy as you'd expect to avoid them. There's been reports of HOAs fining and threatening with foreclosure if a resident uses the wrong pole for flying a flag and for planting a vegetable garden in a front yard. The fine folks at Gawker recently posted a roundup of the craziest of the lot, which is sure to turn your Monday into a Moanday. [Gawker]
