I'm really impressed that an HOA is even willing to discuss the matter, if
there are antenna restrictions in recorded covenants or ownership
association by-laws.

The reason I don't invest in any properties having restrictions is I just
don't want to deal with the hassle -- even for rental properties.  I own
some property I know I'll never live in, it's purely for investment, but I
wouldn't buy any with restrictions because it's easier to find qualified
renters who might want to grow large flower gardens or paint the garage door
a different color or any number of things that CC&Rs often restrict.  Just
don't want to be bothered with it.

I've never had a property vacant more than a week, and they've all
appreciated a lot.  Not so easy when you have an HOA involved.

Steve, thanks for chiming in... I hadn't thought about that, though it
seems that Krish's HOA is considering allowing this installation even
though they could likely outvote him and reject it out of hand.

Absolutely, but the suggestion to put in writing that you'll make up
the difference in property values is essentially settling a number of
lawsuits that haven't yet been brought against you, and that seems a
little much to me!

I agree with you, and with Steve, and you can be sure that the YL and
I are staying faaaaaar away from HOA-encumbered properties when it's
time to buy.  That said, it sounds like Krish has a shot at convincing
the board  to allow a reasonable installation within the regulatory
framework of his HOA, which is something that absolutely should be

When the HOA says "No, you cannot put up a tower, period," that's when
the suggestion to just move is appropriate.
