A: It appears, and I am just guessing here since you didn't state what the violation is, that the HOA is trying to use Code Enforcement to enforce a restrictive covenant that is not a county violation but is a violation of your HOA documents. My guess, again just a guess, is they will figure this out and eventually give it to the HOA lawyer (or hire one if they do not have one) and proceed with pre-suit mediation and a lawsuit. It would be easier and less expensive to fix the violation then to get into litigation with your HOA, which could reach $100,000 or more in legal fees. If you are not sure if the issues is a violation of your restrictive covenants, take the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions to an experience HOA lawyer to review and advise you.
