A: I'm truly sorry to hear about your friend's situation. Homeowners Associations (HOAs) have certain powers under their covenants and bylaws, but they must also follow the law and proper procedures. If your friend was not properly notified of the court date or the allegations against him, there may be grounds to challenge the HOA's actions. It's crucial to promptly gather all related documents and correspondences. Seek legal representation, as an attorney can evaluate potential defenses and advocate on his behalf. Also, considering his military service, there may be additional protections or resources available to him. Lastly, due to his deteriorating mental health, I recommend seeking professional support for him during this challenging time.
