Homeowners associations are committees formed by residents in specific neighborhoods to represent the interests of those living in the neighborhood. Homeowners associations (HOAs) do have rights under the law; they can regulate exterior house design, yard upkeep, fence type and a variety of visual appeal factors and can require homeowners to make repairs, including repairs to a damaged or unsightly roof. If you’ve received notification from your HOA requesting that you fix a visible roof issue, you probably have to comply. If you think the HOA’s request is out of line, getting advice from a professional roofer or attorney might help.
Your first call should be to a reputable roofing contractor, asking him to inspect your roof and make recommendations. If the HOA is requesting that you repair or replace missing or damaged shingles, a roofing contractor is likely to agree. If the HOA wants you to put a new roof on the house, however, but a roofing contractor says it’s not necessary, the contractor’s professional opinion might help your case.
Present your case to the HOA board at the next meeting. HOAs are concerned with maintaining property values in the neighborhood, so be prepared to offer a solution that everyone can live with. For example, if the HOA requested that you replace your roof because a few shingles blew off in the last storm, you might offer to replace the missing shingles with matching ones. If you can convince the board that you can make a less expensive repair and still have a presentable roof, it might accept a compromise.
Roof replacement and some types of roof repairs are expensive propositions; if you can’t afford to fix the roof by the HOA's stated deadline, ask for an extension. Explain the circumstances and let the HOA know how much time you need to comply.
Don’t ignore the notification from the HOA. If you think the board is wrong in requesting that you repair your roof or if you think it is singling you out, contact an attorney to find out if you have any legal recourse. If you can demonstrate that other roofs in the neighborhood are in worse shape than yours, you might have a case for discrimination, but if the HOA is within its rights in making the request and your roof really does need repairing, it could file a lien against your property for failure to comply.
