Nearly 90% of the modern homes have HOA's.
By following some basic rules - tenants should not experience any difficulties:

Homeowners in a covenant-controlled development pay mandatory association fees or dues, either monthly or yearly, as part of their membership. In some HOA's the pool or park and other amenities may be included in the mandatory association fees. Often times you may need to get a letter from Liberty Management giving you permission to use the HOA's amenities.
Tenants are only responsible for optional or voluntary dues. Some HOA have optional dues to use their pool or clubhouse or other amenities which the tenant would have to pay for to use. HOAs use this money for maintenance of common areas used by all the homeowners, such as walking paths, swimming pools, or recreation centers.
More than likely you have violated one of the HOA violations listed in your lease agreement or found on our website libertymgt.net. If a tenant violates a rule, the homeowners' association cannot take action directly against the tenant instead, they notify the landlord of the violation and the landlord then in turn notifies Liberty Management of the violation.
When we receive a HOA violation several steps have to be added to our daily work flow. We have to follow up with the HOA and notify them that we are taking action to cure the violation, we also have to follow up with the Owner, and notify the tenant of the HOA violation. Once the HOA violation is cured, we have to follow up again with the HOA and the owner letting them know that the HOA violation has been cured.
We do charge the tenants a small processing fee for all additional work created because of the tenants HOA violation. This does not include any additional fees that the HOA may charge. There are a couple of exceptions. If a tenant breaks a law or commits a crime, the homeowners' association can report that directly to authorities. If he parks illegally, the homeowners' association can tow his car and he is responsible for the associated costs. For questions or concerns please visit your HOA's website that list all Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&R's).
