I am in chapter 13 and I cannot get the title to my car until that is over, and my car was totaled and neither myself or person who caused accident had insurance. Towing my car, and storage until I can get the title would be thousands of dollars and car only worth $200 for parts. So, can they make me, or just fine me which would be MUCH less than the cost of towing and storing the car for 18 months. (I only owe $400 on car but only $29 being paid out of bankruptcy per month)
Not so fast. Maybe they will fine you EVERY month. Besides, I don't think your neighbors want the place to look like a junk yard.
I suggest you go back to your lawyer and talk about modifying your plan to surrender the car, or perhaps converting it to Chapter 7 if that is feasible. But get the car out of there, and stop punishing your neighbors.
Unfortunately, there is no way for us to answer your question. A review of your HOA covenants, rules and your state's laws governing HOAs is necessary to determine what they can or cannot do.
