No. See the "Homeowners" document on this site:

I notice this poster likes to frequent various location forums on C-D and post HOA-bashing comments whenever he can. I get that he doesn't like them, but his generic "one size fits none" approach to the issue really doesn't help the OP with a very local issue involving a particular HOA and a particular town. If you want to debate HOAs, go to the Politics forum.
Well that would be a poor choice of forum since HOA corporations are not political subdivisions of the state. Another common misperception.

The legal argument pertaining to arbitrary/capricious/discriminatory HOA conduct was intended to give the OP some discussion points for potential legal action. The statement about assessing whether there may be some recourse with state or federal agencies regarding discrimination in housing was also intended give the OP a possible course of action.

There is at least one NC attorney challenging the constitutionality of HOA corporations trying to impose "fines" on homeowners. Perhaps the OP can contact the offices of the attorney representing the homeowner. The story is found here:

Actually, any discussion of HOAs in general should be conducted in the Real Estate forum. It doesn't belong HERE.
