My HOA is doing this project on my balcony, where I have a fan through the wall. They need me to remove and reinstall it on my cost. I thought it is a HOA project, they may pay for it. Then they said they would consider reimbursing me. So they went ahead to get quote of $800-900, and started the work. Now they charged me as maintenance. Please let me know what my options are? Thanks.
Your options seem fairly obvious:
- Pay the maintenance and be done with it.
- Raise the issue with the HOA and request a review of the charge.
- File a lawsuit against the HOA if you believe they have violated the terms of the agreement and possibly what they represented to you. Hopefully that was done in writing.
- Simply ignore the charge and let things play out.
There are pros and cons to each of these. I believe the best approach would be to start with #2 and see how that goes.
