Last sept my dad gave my dd a used car. My oldest son went to the HOA office to ask for a decal to be able to enter the gate without having to go through the main gate. We live closer to the automatic gate. They told him its only 2 stickers per condo. Ok, so we were upset about that but theres nothing we could do. So moving on.

Over the weekend we get a letter saying my dd's car needs a sticker and this needed to be done within 10 days of getting the car. WTF!!!

I went this morning to the office to say i dont understand why the letter since we came to do this and we were told we cant. She said to ask a neighbor who doesnt have cars or only one to see if they dont mind adding my dd's car so I can get the sticker. I said i dont know my neighbors unless you'll give me a list of who they are, there's no way I'll do that bc I will have to go on knocking on every door until I find out.

Anyways, I said but about the letter, so the only solution was, she'll notify the gate so they know this car is a resident.

UGH the aggravation...

Now I know I asked before what HOA was and you did tell me...it was like a housing complex thing right?

Anyway...sure does seem like a lot rules to follow!

What a mess of policies and rules!

Home Owners Association.

For sure a lot of rules and absurd too. She asked me how many people in my unit. I said my adult son, my teen dd and my 5 year old that hopefully will get a car when we are out of here or my other kids are gone too. But it isnt fair. There's no logic on keeping the entrance sticker from her car. Is not like its free.

So awful. When I have to deal with this people, I want to move out sooo much! but Im finally getting use to this place and I'm a mile away from school. Its so convinient.

Sorry to hear about the hassle. I don't see why they just can't issue her one since she is a resident. The world will keep on turning and no one will be hassled.

HOA was one of the main factors I relinquished my house.

Respond to them in writing. Request the sticker. Let them deny you the decal in writing. Cover yourself in writing. Now.
