Common Issues Homeowner Associations Have To Deal With

If you’ve ever been curious about what Homeowner Associations (HOAs) can help with, you don’t have to look any further than the popular Nextdoor app. Many neighbors who are part of HOAs post about the various conflicts and issues they face, such as common area maintenance, noise control, and dispute resolution. By reading through these posts, you can get an idea of what an HOA is capable of dealing with and how it might be able to help. Plus, it’s a great way to stay informed and connected with your local community.

You’ll see rants and discussions centralized around:

  • Porch pirates
  • Broken mailboxes
  • Incessantly barking dogs
  • Parking issues
  • Suspicious vehicles driving slowly by homes
  • Party hardy neighbors
  • Gaudily painted houses
  • Unkept lawns and yards

All of these translate into important issues that face area HOAs on a daily basis. Residents inevitably hold their HOAs responsible for these things because they want their communities to be safe and peaceful. They expect positive responses toward solving these issues in exchange for the annual dues they pay out to the HOA.

Residents justifiably want invaders like porch pirates and the thieves who vandalize mailboxes stopped. HOAs often respond by installing electronic surveillance, stepping up patrols, and beginning community watch groups.

When it comes to barking dogs, HOAs issue warnings, pay visits to owners, enact fines, and contact authorities.

HOAs address parking issues such as long-term vehicles in front of homes, RV and boat placements, and the number of vehicles allowed.

They are excellent at alerting residents about suspicious activities and recent safety issues.

HOAs make communities more livable and enjoyable by regulating the outward appearance of homes for paint selection, décor, plants, outbuildings, and add-ons or buildouts to existing structures.

But there are other concerns HOAs handle that is not seen on Nextdoor:

  • Hoarders with appliances on their porches and car parts in their yards
  • Unruly kids and visitors
  • Access and easements
  • Solar installations
  • Community upkeep and maintenance for sidewalks, playgrounds, dog parks, landscaping, water runoff, community centers, pools, golf courses, and more
  • Unwanted through traffic
  • Short-term rental houses
  • Financial reserves for capital improvements
  • Water abatement
  • Unleashed dogs and pet soiling
  • Changes in governmental rules and regulations
  • Protection of property values

HOAs have a deluge of responsibilities. These can be absolutely overwhelming for even the best-intended organizations!
