Court Says New Owner Must Restore Unapproved Changes Made by Prior Owner

This case involved a dispute between a condominium owner (“Owner”) and her homeowners association (“Association”) over unapproved changes that had been made to the front entry door to Owner’s condominium unit. Some of the changes had been made prior to Owner’s purchase of the unit in 2013, and others were made by Owner after her purchase of the unit. Association first started demanding that Owner restore the front entry door to the proper condition in 2015, and when Owner refused to make the changes that Association demanded, Association filed suit against Owner to compel the requested changes.
