HOA Rents Out Home It Doesn't Own
The owner of a home in a Wesley Chapel, Fla., development was shocked to find out that her tenant had been evicted by the homeowner's association, which changed the locks and moved in its own renter. The owner said that the home hasn't been foreclosed on, but that the association still has taken it over. Now, a legal battle is heating up over whether the eviction is legal. Some HOA legal experts said that it might be, because the owner moved a tenant into her house without paying off a lien the association had imposed.
