Appreciate the update and clarification of your fine neighbors.

Why you pay any amount of money to your HOA is a mystery to me. Your HOA can be a pain in the butt but they are there exactly for this reason - so the neighborhood doesn't go to $#%$#. I don't know if your HOA covers landlord/tenant agreements but the issue of trash, cars in the front yard, noise, all have to be your HOA. The HOA (management company or the HOA president/board) is certainly worth a visit if you haven't done so already.

If your neighborhood is deteriorating, I'm sure your HOA has had this issue occur previously. If the HOA believes that homeowners that bring items to their attention is "being a pain", then the HOA is a waste of money. Even if you bring multiple (valid) complaints, how difficult could the HOA come back onto you for other violations? Most HOA's have fairly agreeable rules and bylaws of which I'm sure you're following now.

One additional legal route. If the value of the rental next door is truly losing money by not being 'rentable', then this is also a valid small claims case. The case would have to go against the landlord and any judge upon seeing pictures with a couple of witnesses would give you a judgment. The landlord may not even show up = easy judgment.

PS> Great to hear SAPD was professional and did an acceptable job. It's not often we hear positive SAPD stories - hence my "Thumbs Up"!

I'm really surprised that the HOA can't be sued for some kind of breach of contract. They're taking your money every year / quarter / whenever and that + the covenants you signed seems to imply a contract.
