The hoa has denied me gate (car and walkway) entrance because I am behind on my payments. I tried to make arrangements to pay them for example I told them I would send them 375, they told me no that was unacceptable that I must send 575... and now they have made outrageous monthly payments in excess of 300... I cant pay that and when I cant they will continue to lock me out? Please Help!!!
It is unclear whether you are in an HOA or a condominium. Different rules can apply. If you are in a condominium and they have totally blocked your acces to your unit, they are in violation of state law. If they have simply made it more difficult for you to get to your home, they may arguably be operating within their rights. If you are in and HOA that is not a condominium, the issue is more difficult. In either event, the association documents would need to be reviewed to determine what rights both you and the association have. If you have not access at all, you clearly need to talk to an attorney who can review your documents and any communications from the Association.
