If you live in an HOA guided community, there is a set of rules of thing you can and can not do within living in the community. The HOA Mgt and the HOA Board has a duty to enforce these rules in an effort to keep up the Look, Feel & maintain the Values within the community.
Some HOAs only deal with the small stuff, the low hanging fruit of the issues. They don't want to confront the real issues and rule breakers. This is what Selective Enforcement is. This can open up an HOA for legal action by its resident home owners. If it's in the documents for the community it has to be taken care of and not avoided. If the docs say No Street parking then there is no street parking. Why is it that some HOA boards that have the same rules have no issues governing it while others could care less. Then residents only get upset when they find out that those community developments have a higher resale value. By that time its too late.
