Brick, NJ asked in Real Estate Law for New Jersey

Q: can my HOA forbid the parking of my registered & insured pop-up camper on my own private driveway?

I own my property (fee simple) and cannot see how an HOA can prevent my parking a vehicle in my driveway when, at the same time, said vehicle can be parked, legally, on an adjacent town-owned street.

A: One of the worst mistakes anyone can make in purchasing real estate is to have an make is to have any type of HOA, condo, or coop board involved. You are going to need to read the HOA by-laws and any amendments to them to determine what they can and cannot do. I always tell clients never, ever even think about buying any property when an HOA, condo, or coop board is involved. They can be more of a nightmare than you can possibly imagine.
