HOA Board Not Enforcing Rules in Maryland

Question:

My board refuses to enforce a rule to keep trash cans in garages. In fact, board members themselves flaunt this rule and have definitively refused to enforce. This is a dense townhouse development and trash cans and trash is visible from our living room decks. I complained multiple times. The management company say enforcement is at the discretion of the board. Do I have any recourse?

Answer:

Hi Carol,

If your board is not enforcing a rule, try approaching them or bringing up this issue at the next open board meeting. Bring a copy of the association’s governing documents where the rule is stated, if possible. If that does not work, you can attempt to remove problem board members from their position. The procedure for removing a board member is typically outlined in the governing documents as well. Your final option is to take legal action, which would best require the help of a lawyer.
