Pontiac, MI asked in Contracts and Real Estate Law for Michigan

Q: Had recommend HOA Contractor do some work. After work was done 30 days later new policy installed and I was violated.

Is this legal, when they gave me contractor's information? Should the contractor have known what was allow in the HOA since he came at the HOA recommendation? I spoke to HOA told them work was complete before new policy was in place. I did not hear anything until this year with threats, five years later. 2017-2022 I feel like I have been conned.

A: It depends what the HOA has actually done to enforce the new policy. It sounds to me like it would be grandfathered in until typical HOA policies, but perhaps not. Unfortunately, if the HOA is making a bigger deal out of this than they should it might take a costly lawsuit to get the matter resolved.
