Homeowners’ associations (HOAs) exist to establish and enforce rules intended to provide a level of conformity for people living within an established community, whether it be a condominium, a co-op or a common interest development (CID) of stand-alone houses. But even in these communities with their covenants, conditions and restrictions, sometimes conflicts can arise when the expectations of a homeowner and the association clash.
