Q: How does it work if you are threatened to be sued by a HOA ?
There is no actually proof that the HOA in question is real. In fact just a bunch of peple who put a gate on a county road? However only one individual has reached out and he is the only one filing and not even the owner of the property that is in question?
A: A Missouri attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. Their rights could depend on what the suit is for - accident, property damage, etc. If you believe you could be sued for a legitimate claim, you could try to arrange a brief consult with a local attorney to discuss how to handle such a lawsuit. There aren't many details here, and attorneys you reach out to would want to know more about such a pending suit - what exactly it is that you did that might bring on a suit, whether it might be covered by insurance, the validity of the HOA, etc. Good luck
