The only rule Taylor Glen has on fences is that it must be an iron or aluminum fence - no PVC, wood, stockade...etc.

I would suggest you get your hands on a copy of the association's covenant and restrictions. Your realtor should be able to get this for you from the current owner. The major things are the fence restrictions, no sheds, and no above-ground pools - only in-ground pools are allowed.

As far as corner lots go, I believe the only restrictions are set forth by the village. I would check with New Lenox ordinances about how far from the sidewalk fences must be on corner lots.

I have a Camelot home and I have no problem with it. Been there for three years now.

Check with your realtor and the village. Don't trust all the answers you get here. If you go by advice off of Topix, you may be given bad info. If you go by the village and HOA documents youre good.

I believe the village sets the actual guidelines about where the fence can be placed, the HOA sets the type of allowable materials.

Avoid all HOA subdivisions. Who wants to pay someone to tell them what they can and can't do on their own property?

Hi Prof!

I don't mind paying for a guarantee that I won't have to live next to a junk car yard ornament or a never cleaned dog run outside my bedroom window.

Subdivision settings bring with it a unique set of circumstances and what someone does on their property directly affects their neighbor. I never found HOA rules to be restrictive at all. I would live by the same rules even without an HOA. Mostly they are common sense and some people need that spelled out to them so others don't suffer the consequences of inconsiderate neighbors and property depreciation. Sorry you had such a bad experience but that is not the case for everyone. Others have had bad experiences without HOA's.

To the original poster: read the covenants and restrictions carefully before you buy. Don't expect to be the exception to the rules later on. Before you buy is the time to critique an HOA, not after.

I think it was $260 for the year - pretty insignificant.

There's a simple way of handling this. Read the covenants and restrictions before you buy. If you want things that are not allowed by the association, don't buy in that area. If there are things you don't want your neighbors to do (for example a PVC stockade fence), then maybe an HOA is not such a bad thing.

HOA fees are $300 a year, all fences have to be metal, only inground pools. Pretty basic

Or join the board and make changes to the covenants if there is something you don't like,

The village has applied regulations on homeowners. Those have served the community well. Why do some feel the need to control beyond them? Your not a better class of people who live under an HOA. Just foolish and kidding yourself in my opinion.

The people may or may not be a better class but the homes are guaranteed to be so. Lots of benefits there.

The village idiot rules are already in place. No? I have seen the neighbors who park a 30 foot boat in the driveway for the winter though. That would tick me off. You could have my neighbors. They park about 4 to 7 cars on their drive each night. I have no idea how many families are living there each night. Does an HOA cover these shenanigans?

I currently live in a Subdivison in NL where one home has 6 cars, and 9 people living in it. Their cars are in front of my house, the neighbors and the neighbors across the street. In my Subdivison there are fences that are wood, PVC, metal, and falling apart. There are pools that are nice and others that never seen a winter cover and haven't been opened in years. There are idiots who have no idea what a weed whacker is, how to clean up their dog poop, or how to take care of a blacktop driveway that has been crumbling for years. I would rather pay an HOA fee, spend a little more money for a home, pay a little more in taxes, than drive down my block and look at a neighborhood that would be a perfet backdrop for the remake of Sanford and Son. If you own a home, pay over $7000 in taxes, take nice vacations with your family, drive a nice car, you should be able to upkeep your house so others don't have to love next door to a craphole.

Exactly. No one has the right to impose their mess on other people.

Until you have lived next to such egotistical, self serving and inconsiderate neighbors it is hard to fully understand the problems. If you are the problem, then you most likely are refusing to see this issue or any other issue through someone else's eyes.
