Brookfield Subdivision just increased its homeowner's association dues to $75 per year.  If you fail to pay in 30 days, someone comes to your house and asks you why.  If you still fail to pay, they attach a lien on your property.  The board members enforce the idea the board MUST approve every single change to your property, including any changes to the INSIDE of your home that are NOT seen by others.  They have bragged about stopping construction of a pool for months just because the homeowner failed to get prior approval.  It's ALL about power in Brookfield.  When the president decides he wants you to replace your mailbox, he prints your address in the newsletter hoping to shame you into getting a new mailbox.  The president routinely drives through the subdivision looking for violations, sort of like German SS.

I do appreciate the fact that some people do not like to live where there are deed restrictions.  I sat on the board in Brookfield a few years back.  I do know for a fact that they cannot stop you from changing the interior of your home.  As for the exterior,  yes, exterior changes must be approved to meet the wording in the deed restrictions. 

Brookfield is a really beautiful neighborhood.  It is hard to say anything is wrong with this neighborhood. I am a Realtor and have been for 13 years.  I show houses all over the greater Toledo area.  Sometimes I show homes in areas where the deed restrictions have been let go by the wayside.  There are above ground pools, old trashy looking sheds, mailboxes falling down, trailers in the yards, all types of fences in disrepair.  And guess what the neighbors can't figure out why know one wants to live there? Or why their homes don't compare with the homes in Brookfield with the same square footage.

Now I truly do appreciate people who do not like deed restrictions.  Many, many times I have people asks to see homes without deed restrictions.  There are many, especially out in the country where you can do whatever you want.

By the way, I can get you a copy of the deed restriction if you like. Just email me. I can send them via email.

If the association dues are now $75 that is actually pretty good.  Lots of other neighborhoods are up to $100 - $150.   In most neighborhoods that covers the entrances, landscaping,lighting, sprinklers, water, and liability insurance.

What if someone wanted to raise pigs in the yard next to yours?  Or wanted to store their old broken down trailer or junk cars in the yard next to yours?  Their are all different kinds of deed restrictions all over the city.  I guess the only advice is to make sure you read the deed restrictions in an area prior to your moving in.  I know it does seem unfair,  maybe you should get on the board in your neighborhood and try to vote some of the changes out.  You could volunteer to maintain the entrances or organize people to work on the entrances so the expenses could go down. I don't think there is a lot you can do about the expense of the liability insurance??

How would you like it to be orgainized?   What are your recommendations?   Maybe their is a better way?
