I don’t like HOA’s.

I live in my Grandmother’s old Townhome, I bought it from my Dad for a low price, when she passed away, because I used to take care of her. I am very blessed, because it is so expensive out here, I don’t think I could afford to live in this beautiful state otherwise.

My Grandmother lived here since before I was born, I grew up here. It was really nice. It had a pool, clubhouse, playground, and a barbeque pit. Now the HOA is 385 a month, and we really don’t have any of this. The pool and clubhouse is closed, and the park is full of weeds.

It is a beautiful neighborhood because of the matured trees. Now what irks me is that they are cutting down all of the trees, because they say it is causing “sewer problems”. Now the neighborhood doesn’t look as pretty. There is not any shade, and I don’t have any trees to read under.

Isn’t there a better solution? We need trees. Our population has increased so much so, that our air quality is bad sometimes.

There goes my beautiful neighborhood.

    As far as I know, we don’t have HOAs here, some appear to be expensive and very restrictive. As for trees, our city had huge Moreton Bay Figs everywhere but the problem was underground pipes and services damage, so they had to go – it all looks so barren, practical I suppose but not attractive.

    Hopefully they replace the trees with a variety of trees, some deep rooting, some not. Thirty feet from sewer lines is perfect.

    Sadly people with power use it like an axe.

    Can you plant some of your own? Maybe something on the smaller size that won’t create issues down the line?

    You should try to get on the board and have your voice heard. Of course, I think your dues are very low, which may be the reason for things not being cared for in what must be an old development. Most HOA dues here run around $800 a month.
