Garrett and Angela Holmes were shocked to get a letter from their housing association, which demanded they remove her wheelchair ramp. They ignored it, thinking it was a mistake, but the association then put a lien on the house.
The couple had lived with their young daughter in the Mount Juliet residence with no problems for over a decade. There were never any complaints against them, and the other tenants had no problem with her wheelchair ramp. Plus, they helped her without prompts.
However, the HOA board got a new president, who didn’t like the ramp. Angela wouldn’t comply, knowing she had rights. Therefore, she refused to back down, which escalated the issue.
Angela confronted the HOA board, inquiring about why they wanted the wheelchair ramp removed. Though they were uncomfortable, the new president said it was unsightly. However, she refused to comply with the request and stood up for her rights.
After refusing to remove the ramp, she got a notification from the HOA saying a lien had been put on her home. She would have to comply with the request to stop the lien. Though outraged, Angela had to consider her options.
