Listen to the discussion.

Thousands of Charlotte-area residents live in neighborhoods that have a local Homeowner Association.  HOAs are often praised for keeping communities cleaner, safer and more livable.  But some homeowners complain that HOA boards can be too rigid and arbitrary in enforcing covenants and restrictions, infringing on homeowners’ rights.     

This WFAE Public Conversation explored the pros and cons of living in an HOA community, along with the rights and responsibilities of HOA residents and boards.  Panelists discussed current state laws that govern Homeowner Associations in North Carolina, and proposed changes to those laws.
