York County woman fed up with homeowners association - WBTV 3 News, Weather, Sports, and Traffic for Charlotte, NC: INDIAN LAND, SC (WBTV) -
Taking on a persistent homeowners association is a battle many have faced before, but one York County mother says she's had enough.
24-year old Betty Lapore and her family bought a house in the Windsor Trace development last year. Since then, she says the homeowners association hasn't left her family alone.
"We moved here from a really bad area in Fort Bragg so our kids could have a good life. And I'm not trying to cause problems, i'm just trying to hangout with my kids all day," Lapore said.
Lapore tells WBTV it all started when she decided to paint her front door red, which instantly caught the attention of the HOA.
"They fined us 350 dollars. They threatened to put a lien on our house for that much," Lapore said.
Yet another HOA channeling Mick Jagger: Sees a red door, wants it painted black. No unapproved colors any more; we want it painted black.
