Vet Could Lose Home For Displaying Small US Flag In Front Yard Because It Violates Home Display Rules
Can’t have those awful flags flying now, can we? It might lower the value of the homes nearby:
Larry Murphree explained that his homeowners’ association in the Sweetwater community wants him to remove the flag because it violates home display rules. Furthermore, he is facing $8,000 in fines if he doesn’t take it out of his flower pot.
“I want it to go away. It’s such a minor little thing and they keep coming after me,” Murphree told: WAWS. “They just sent me a letter that says I owe them around $8,000 and they put a foreclosure lien on my house.”
Murphree has 30 days to pay the fines and remove the flag or the homeowners’ association: will move forward with the foreclosure.
The veteran had a similar fight with the homeowners’ association: last year and he filed a lawsuit which was settled out of court. Now the homeowners’ association: flag display rules have been rewritten since then.
I don’t know how you civilized people live with these tin-pot tyrants in the HOAs. : I really don’t.
Give me the country life any day of the week. : I can do what I want and don’t have some knucklehead with a rulebook telling me what I can do on my property.
Yeah, I have to drive a few miles to town if I want groceries, but it beats dealing with stuff like this.
