I find it impossible to keep up with the Brandermill Homeowners Ass-ociation. Why are the residents not given a vote on what is acceptable and what is not? What are these bullies thinking? They announce that the Policy Police will be patrolling your neighborhood and will be trouncing on your property waiting to find something to be pissed off about. Last summer I was notified that my mailbox needed replacing, so I paid the $180 to have a new one installed. In October I received a notice that the mailbox was the 'old' design and had to be replaced. I called and was told that everything was fine as I had followed the regulations in effect at the time. Now I have just received another notification that the mailbox is wrong and has to be replaced. Who are these people? Do they think I have a box of money that I reach into to pay for mailboxes? I have owned that house for three years and have never passed an inspection. It is always something. One time it was that a watering can was on the porch! With flowers planted in it! I thought it was a pretty can and used it as a decoration. Nope. It was a watering can. I'm getting sick to death of this old, decrepit, falling down lousy neighborhood full of old crap houses,(a great deal of them being rented out) that are all out of style not to mention a dark and dangerous road with a wicked reputation for death and maiming from car accidents leading into the place. I'm moving out into a nice apartment and, since I probably won't be able to sell my house since its reputation for being ridiculous is widespread, I'll be renting out my place too.

Unfortunately for you, you'll soon find out that you, as the property owner, are still responsible for any infractions of the homeowners-association's rules caused by your renter.
In fact, it is to you, and not your renter, that they will send the recorded delivery letter threatening to fine you.

I know that I will still be responsible, but at least I won't be living there! I am an old lady with a fixed income (I always hated that expression when I was young) and am on the verge of just giving up and walking away. What are they going to do? Put me in debtor's prison? At least I will get 3 hots and a cot without the Brandermill Police after me anymore! My home is neat, clean and well cared for. I bought a vacated old, rotting home and put in new windows, doors, driveway, mailbox and cut down dead trees, ripped out overgrown weeds, painted and wanted very much to live quietly in my tiny home. HA! Let it fall back into disrepair and disgrace. I don't care anymore.
