HOA's Can NO LONGER Prevent Texas Residents From Flying Their Flag!!

Home Owners Associations in Texas can no longer prevent you from flying U.S., Texas, or a branch of the U.S. armed forces flag. This is a huge victory for property owners and the Texas Assocation of REALTORS® as they helped lobby for this long overdue change. Most importantly, Veterns won't be fined by their HOA for displaying a flag that they helped defend.

 

Here are some other noteworthy changes to what HOA's can no longer prevent:

Installing a solar-energy device on the property.
Installing and use rain-harvesting devices.
Display certain religious items on the entry of the property.
Install roof shingles that are wind and/or hail resistant, energy efficient, or solar generating.

 

Happy Flag Day Texans!

Sorry I found this at the end of the day -- suggested anyway.  Maybe we can have a "belated" Happy Flag Day!  Great news and hopefully more states will follow the lead!!

I understand the purpose of HOA's; however sometimes the rules do not make much common sense.  The legislature did a good job on this one.

Sometimes people have too much free time to develop ways to get into other people's business. Glad to hear so much of the nonsense has be struck down, at least for now.
