Car Stuck in Garage by HOA
"Hey all -
maybe someone can help me...
Can an HOA block my egress and ingress? They have placed three large stone pillars in front of our driveway, preventing us from leaving and my wife's car is in the garage. Her car has been stuck there for over four days so she can't work. We are beyond frustrated. The HOA president basically told us best of luck - see yea - your cable will be next to go.
We are paying our association dues - but can't keep up with all the new assessments and now with the 3k in their attorney fees we owe over 5k."

Why did this happen? What management company was this HOA using? Read on. He explains. If you look at page 3, entry number 23, of the city-data.com forum linked above, you will see that he says:
"We had an assessment done on our place last year for $1000 - I paid $500. I did not pay the other half. I Was 2 weeks late. They then doc'd me $800 in attorney fees. I called the management - Associa management and worked it out to pay an extra $100 a month until I could pay it off.
They then had another $1500 assessment done to rebuild the roofs. I could not keep up and feel behind - but made my payments plus $100 and I will continue to do so and try to make it more".
