A HOMEOWNER has found out too late that his backyard gazebo was against his HOA’s rules and now he was to remove it.
“Here is the backstory: the client who hired me recently bought this home [and] this was already obviously there,” said the user.
He explained that Arizona statesays that if the structure is there and bolted on, it’s allowed.

“For example, the client who hired me was never given any information that the HOA did not approve and wanted this gazebo ripped out until after he bought the home.
“I know I’m just a junk guy but I feel like you have to tell people those things before you sell them the house. Anyway, check out this demolition removal of this gazebo in a backyard in Phoenix, Arizona.”
The video received nearly 400 comments from people who were furious on behalf of the new homeowner who got stuck with the gazebo.
“IDK why people live in HOA,” wrote one person.
Another person wrote, “Previous owner didn’t disclose, they should be paying.”
“Couldn’t agree more,” said Timely Junk.
Another person suggested that prospective homebuyers should request “minutes” from the previous six months of HOA meetings.
