A couple of points.
When you sign the contract to purchase, the Realtor and Seller are required to provide you with copies of all HOA documents. The Buyer then has, I believe 3, days to back out of the purchase and not forfeit the deposit.
Once you sign the purchase documents, you're on the hook. If there are so many disgruntled owners, run for the Board; replace the busy bodies; and amend the documents which govern the HOA. That's not as easy as it sounds.
Waste of time to write your Congressman or US Senator. Look to the state level. The Legislature was to hold hearings, this term, to address heavy handed HOA tactics and suggest legislation. Have not seen that in the paper.
Finally, become familiar with state statutes which govern HOAs. Statutes over ride HOA document provisions.
HOAs are not governed by the Real Estate commission.
The old adage "Look before you leap" would seem to apply.
