In most cases, liens, foreclosure, etc is all spelled out in the HOA agreement that every owner must sign. And this can vary, depending on the language in the agreement, and on local and state laws. We can't really make any broad statements on this, because one size doesn't fit all.

This topic is "good to know" stuff for a lot of people, because folks will now be more aware of what to look for when they buy properties and/or RVs. But I would be remiss if I didn't point out that regardless of what local laws and ordinances, or HOA agreements state at the time you purchase the property - things CAN and usually WILL change over time. Your city/town/village boards/councils can vote to change rules and ordinances at any time. And the majority of HOA members, through the HOA board, can change the rules within the HOA area at any time, according to the procedures spelled out in the HOA constitution. (And RV owners CAN petition for change!)

The things that will usually NEVER change, though, are any covenants and restrictions that are attached to deeds. Those are usually permanent.

Just more food for thought.

An HOA that has a lien can foreclose that lien.

Where I live you can have your trailer parked in your driveway from May 1st to Sept 30. Lots are on the street for days. You can park your trailer in your yard as long as it is not past the front of your house. My driveway is far to short for my trailer, and my truck can not pull it, so its on a seasonal lot and stays there all year.

I could park it in the back yard as I have access by a laneway, but it would take up a lot of the backyard and we are not prepared to do so at this time along with buying a new truck.

Used to live where we were harassed by the HOA all the time. We couldn't even park it in front of the house for loading/unloading without the neighborhood busy-body leaving a nasty note on the door telling us we would be fined. Paid upwards of $600/year in storage costs.

Now, we have a nice pad in our backyard with its own carport cover and RV Mate pedestal and it sits hooked up and in the shady, happy as can be.

Where we live it is not an issue parking RV or boats on your property. Unfortunately my property configuration does not allow me to keep my TT at home. My MIL is in a nursing home and her home is in a trust, so we cannot sell it while she is still living. She has a great piece of property only 3 blocks from us where we store our TT for the winter.

In the summer months we store our TT at a CG we frequent upstate NY. The cost per month to store is only $3 per day. In the worst case the monthly storage is only $90, but when we use the trailer every weekend we only pay storage for 4 days per week or about $48 per month. When I was towing my trailer back and forth every weekend it was costing me about $125 per weekend in gas and tolls alone.

Now we drive up on a Friday, plug it in, level and put out the slides all in about 15 minutes. A lot less hassle than taking a TT though NYC.

We keep ours at a nearby storage (now). We live in a townhouse with HOA. We can park on the public street right outside our door or in the parking lot taking up a few open spots to load and unload. It's got all the dry goods and linens, ect. stored in it. I bring it home to load food and clothes and wife.
Our storage place has a dump station and a wash bay which is a nice convenience. At $50 a month.

If a person-is considering moving into an HOA it is up to them to read the CC&R's and rules and regs BEFORE they buy in the community.
I was president of our HOA for 2 terms. We have a small RV lot in our community. We only have 149 homes here and our RV lot has 8 spaces. Our monthly parking dues are $15.00 a month and the lot has a locked gate around it. We are allowed to park in front of our house for 72 hours to load or unload our RV. Our city has the same 72 hour time limit for the entire city.
An HOA can have rules more restrictive than the city but not less restrictive.

Our house is on a corner lot with a fairly busy 2-lane streets and a 4-way stop. The busiest street is the 'side street' relative to our house. There are CC&R/HOA restrictions related to parking vehicles either on the street or in yard at the front of the house. As long as the trailer is on the side and doesn't extend beyond the front of the house, there is no problem.

A couple of weeks ago, we moved our trailer from a $55/mo uncovered, fenced, and locked storage area to the side of our house. Our side yard was a bit tricky, blind-side back in off a busy street. I made it on the second try. It's nice to have it so close and save $ too.
