Yeah, Health and safety violations not withstanding. Not to mention that in a hoa situation, every resident is paying for the service giving them a right to their opinion. Not cutting grass does not effect property values, but foreclosures do, and neglected and trashed out foreclosures even more so. Societies have rules and we all have to live by them, moving away is not a solution, that creates ghettos. People have a right and responsibility to keep an eye on their community. Those who cannot live civilized should be the ones who move out. When you work out in the view of the public you will be scrutinized, live up to the standards and it will not be a problem.
