Basically don't do anything you don't want to do. If he persists, tell him to have his attorney (even if he doesn't have one) to draw up whatever documents they would want you to sign. When you get the papers, (which I doubt will ever come to you), if you did get papers - do NOT...Read more »
We have lived in our subdivision for 18 years, and it is an uphill battle to see that the covenants are enforced. Examples of non-enforcement include boats and trailers parked on the properties, vehicles parked in the yard, trash/recycling cans showing from the street, yards not kept up, overnight... Read more »

VRBO is not desired in our neighborhood. Before we vote on the matter, I felt we might need legal advice. Our covenants restrict businesses in the residence. We might need a lawyer to address our board members. I am the president of ROHA or Royal Oaks.
The house was built in early 1900s. None of the boxes in the lead based paint section of the lease are checked one way or the other, and there is no disclosure statement of any kind. My daughter who is in college signed the lease. Within the last month of her living in the house, the landlord has... Read more »
