19. My car was damaged in an accident and I have it parked in my driveway – the HOA is threatening to have it towed, can they do that?

Depends upon your governing documents. If your driveway is included on the deed to your property the HOA cannot trespass and tow your car. The DCCR rule “usually” carries a clause similar to no unlicensed unregistered vehicles may be parked anywhere within the subdivision.

So if the damaged car carries current license & registration then you are in compliance. Always check your governing documents.

Also, lets turn this around – consider the damaged car parked in your neighbor’s driveway, what action would you want of your neighbor as well as your HOA Board? It is important to look at all sides of any situation.
