    I would be better off selling the house. Thankfully, I am not upside down on the mortgage.

    Here you go this guy just got his second warning to fix the lawn. What do you think? He had it sodded 2 years ago. We might get some work from this.:clapping: I was asked by HOA to look into it since the guy says that isn't his property. :dizzy:

    would they actually foreclose on a guy for having a spot of bad grass? thats bull. is the bank really going to hold on to that much property over a few blades of grass?

    ya know. privileged men telling other men what to do is the reason they got their guns out and started a war.

    Looks like a lot of shade to overcome. Maybe a bed instead? If it ain't his who is paying for the irrigation?

    That's the kind of hoa that pisses me off. If you want it fixed you pay for it. Not force the homeowner to pay for something he probably doesn't give a damn about.

    Especially when he's just pissing money into the wind with the shade.

    Next they'll tell him he needs to take trees out. I had that happen to a fence client of mine. She had 4 trees behind her apartment. Just barely in her property line. They required her to remove them all. They were "ugly"

    Bird, did you really clean up your lawn, or are you just telling us you did?
