Kevin Hirzel’s “A guide to holiday decorating that will keep you off your HOA’s naughty list” was recently published in the Washington Post. The guide provides community association neighborhoods with knowledge of the most common homeowners association rules regulating holiday décor. Some of which include:
- Timing of illuminated exterior lighting
- Limitations on yard decorations
- Bylaw preclusions of music and light nuisances
- Safety regulations for holiday attractions
While HOA rules are designed to maintain a safe and healthy environment, some homeowners may find issue with the inflexible rules and regulations some community associations enforce through their governing documents around the holidays.
If you live in a homeowners association, it is advised to first review any current HOA restrictions before decorating your home for the holiday season.
