Bickering With Neighbors: Disputes With Homeowner’s Associations

One of the great things about our nation and the State of New Mexico is that we are a country and state of laws. From the federal Constitution down to municipal ordinances in cities like Albuquerque and towns like Pecos and Los Alamos, there are laws which govern the affairs of our citizens. Even neighborhoods are often governed by the rules of homeowner’s associations, which are intended to promote fairness and to ensure that some people don’t take advantage of others.

In the case of homeowner’s associations, rules are usually put in place to make sure that residents maintain their lawns or property in ways that are attractive and maintain the value of the properties. They also seek to prohibit loud music at unreasonable times and high structures which diminish other residents’ views. For the most part, they are generally well-intended. Sometimes, though, they can be abused by an association seeking to punish a neighbor or enforced in a manner that is disproportionately unfair.

One of the unfortunate consequences of disputes concerning homeowners’ associations is that they can quickly become very unpleasant. The frequency with which residents see each other, and the proximity with which they live can be disruptive to community life. If you have any problems with your neighbors on one of these matters, do not let it spiral out of control so that your living situation becomes a nightmare.

Call the Law Office of George “Dave” Giddens at 505-633-6298 to consult with one of the attorneys about your homeowners’ association.  Whether it is a dispute, or a review and explanation of specific policies, our attorneys can help you stay in compliance with the rules of your homeowners’ associations and defend you if necessary.  You can also visit our website at
