Leslie Robson Hoog started this petition to Senator Debbie Mayfield and

HOAs have gotten out of control. Instead of using their authority to ensure property values are maintained for homeowners, it has become a tool to enforce personal preference in neighborhoods. The individuals sitting on these boards do not have special skills or certifications to make decisions for other people properties. As a property owner you should have certain rights in the United States to enjoy property ownership and not have to bend to arbitrary and capricious enforcement of personal preference. We are building our dream home and it meets and exceeds homes in the neighborhood yet the HOA architectural committee has turned down our fence (others have fences) our custom built gates, stated where we can place our fence on our side yard, insisted on approving our pool, pool pump and now turn down our mailbox. The reason this is an injustice is many homes in the neighborhood have over grown vegetation, mildewed fences, tall gates, and fences, yet because we are a new build, they feel we must get their approval on everything we envisioned building on our property. (Our home is a West Indies Style home and is valued at over $750,000.) How is that right for regular people, who are actually JUST other people, control our ability to build according to our dreams? That truly seems like exclusion and prejudice. The rules are vague enough to permit them to just say no and then cite those vague sections. This is too much and is not what HOAs started out to accomplish. Please help us get this under control and limit what powers they can exert over people who just want to be free enough to enjoy building their homes, and maintain the American dream of owning YOUR own home and not bow to what your neighbors think should be your home.  This petition is going to be sent to our State Senators to request legislation be enacted to limit HOA power and authority to block homeowner liberties that do not actually reduce property value.
