Move In/Out Fee For Normal Wear and Tear To The Building


This Rule and Regulation appears to conflict with the existing HOA’s governing documents.
1. HOA, by Delcaration, can impose reasonable fees.
2. Wear and tear happens over time. Wear and tear is not a single event. (See Blacks Law dictionary and Google “normal wear and tear”). If there is damage to the building, the unit owner is responsible for the cost of repairs per Declaration.
3. Prima facie, this is a fee to use the common elements. Each unit owner is granted in the Declaration an easement to use (ingress / egress) the general common elements. Declaration: if unit owners causes damage to general common elements, unit owner pays for cost of repairs.
4. This Rule is selectively enforced. Does not apply to unit owners whom are not moving in/out but are moving in / moving out new furniture, debris if remodeling, cabinets, etc.
