HOA will control how you live
We've been leasing a townhouse for a while now and I can say with all honesty we're glad we're nearing the end of it. Initially we were excited to move in to a more 'newly-built' neighborhood with modern amenities and overall neat and clean homes. The units themselves are great, floorplan is decent, high ceilings, overall a nice place to live. The neighborhood has a comforting charm to it and has a nice pool and field area that are central to the area. These are the positives. The one thing our landlord failed to notify us immediately is that you MUST call Patrol Masters in order to safe list any car parked outside for more than a day. If you don't, you get one warning before your car gets towed, as what happened to us and a few neighbors we've spoken to shortly. The parking situation itself is ridiculous enough to not to reside here. A couple few garage doors down had to end their lease prematurely as a result of one of their trucks not being able to fit in the garage. It doesn't sound like a big deal, however because they can't fill the garage with two compliant cars, (both registered in the state of CA, operating, motorcyles and golf carts do not count, and yes they need your license address updated at the time of approval as well) they ended up having the truck towed with nowhere else to park, and was forced to move because of strict HOA guidelines. **Also even if you have a parking permit to leave your car outside, you are required to move it EVERYDAY and we've seen at times they will mark your tires with a marker I believe(?). Also they gratuitously put a warning note on the car before they attempt to tow. ***Another thing is you can apply for a temporary permit for either yourself or visitors. However you are only limited to what I believe is about 20-30 passes a year. Don't expect to have people stay for over a month or whatnot. Another asinine rule is in regards to garbage cans being left out. You have 12 hours from the time they pick up the garbage (around 9am) to bringing them back into your garage. I'm guessing this can be impossible for a handful of people who work past 9pm on any certain day. This is considered an infraction and will result in first, an obligatory warning, then a hearing where they basically read the rules to you, and finally issue a penalty fee or perhaps a warning if you're lucky. It may sound like I'm exaggerating these scenarios, however this is what we've had to deal with on a weekly basis. We couldn't move the car for a few days at times because we've been out of town. And although we may attempt to contact HOA, they've never cc'd or forward e-mails sent to our landlord even though we've requested several times prior. And I'm going be straightforward and say HOA has always been a nuisance to a degree, however this is the most overbearing HOA I've ever had to deal with (compared to what I've seen in Nevada and the LA area). I would say if you're looking to stay here, do your best to keep with the rules or else you're going to pay penalty on top of penalty on top of a possible towing fee. They are pretty on top of the towing and they do it almost immediately. That's Patrol Master's job. Even though they're supposed to be 'patrolling' for the safety of the neighborhood, I've only ever seen them actually tow resident's cars. They don't actually stop packages from being stolen off of door steps. There was even a rack stolen from a truck parked in front of our house overnight. So really, HOA will always put themselves first but in this area they can't even keep the small promises that they do offer. ***Just for the record, there are many more rules that are as asinine as parking and leaving out garbage cans. I'd be here all day if I had to list them all. Welcome to your typical dystopic utopia.
