  • If I owned the property, then they can go stick it. If I rented, then unless my landlord makes a big deal of it, I'd tell them to go stick it too.

  • hang it up anyway. tell them to show you where in your rental agreement does it say no clotheslines. im sorry but i use a clothesline all summer bc it takes so much off the electric bill.

  • Well if you are "forbiden" - you are forbiden. Most people get a copy of the HOA rules prior to moving in.... so they should know what is allowed and what is not.

    Perhaps a compromise with a removable clothes line or one that rolls up into its self so there isnt a big clothes line perminately out. And the clothing be removed as soon as it is dry.

    I think it should be pointed out that it is very green and that the homeowner with the line is willing to compromise.

  • I would hang it up anyway. Until someone brings me some type of signed legal paper telling me I can't...

  • I would tell them to get off my property because thats the only way they could see if my laundry was on the line.

  • for me I look at it as a matter of them trying to tell me how to spend my money.. They are telling me I am mandated to either go to a laundromat... or get a drier.. Which.. frankly. I don't think is their right. I don't tell them how to spend their finances. I mean good greif.. If I did I sure would tell them to quit buying and piling up all them used car's etc.. or worse yet.. the stinking line of "to be repaired lawn mowers...grrrrrr"

  • If your neighborhood is nice enough that it bothers someone, than it's a problem.

    If no one complains, you're home free.
