Renting houses in the Dallas Metroplex can be a lucrative business. But it can easily turn into a giant headache if the properties you own are part of homeowner associations.
Take, for example, the situation many landlords have been facing this summer in Plano.
Continuing drought has forced that city to implement Stage 3 water restrictions, which allow homeowners to use sprinklers on their lawns once every other week and water by hand for two hours each day.
Limited access to water makes it difficult, and expensive, for homeowners to maintain an attractive yard. But according to a report on 5NBCDFW.com, homeowner associations have nevertheless been threatening to impose heavy fines on individuals who do not maintain their yards.
This has created a catch-22 for homeowners. The City of Plano says they can’t water their plants and grass often, but their HOAs say they must still have presentable lawns or risk incurring heavy fines. As a result, homeowners have been bombarding landscaping firms like DFW Sod and Tree Trimming Co. with hundreds of requests a week to have their grass replaced.
