Sarasota, FL asked in Real Estate Law, Civil Rights and Entertainment / Sports for Florida

Q: I live in a gated community. We need help with a conflict with the hoa. We believe we are being denied rights.

There is a rental policy for the clubhouse. For 2 years we rented and hosted house concerts. Private event. Hoa does not like inviting outsiders. Changing rules to specifically exclude us.

A: You will need to review the HOA Declarations to determine the policy in place. If they changed the policy after you purchased your property, you will want to review the provisions regarding amendments. There is usually a notice and meeting requirement to call a vote of the homeowners to approve the change. You may want to review your documents with an attorney to determine the best course of action for you. Best of Luck! Jennifer
