Short-term rentals have become a popular way for homeowners to earn extra income when they are away from their property. Websites like Airbnb and Vrbo have made short-term rentals easy and accessible. For homeowner associations (“HOAs”), management companies, and other community members; however, these short-term rentals present various problems.
Solar panels are increasing in popularity for both residential and commercial properties. Some property owners may consider installing solar panels to meet their own energy needs; others may consider installing them to generate income or to provide energy for public use. Given the high-value status of property assets, the long-term impact of solar panels is an important consideration.
Homeowner associations (HOAs) across the country should be aware of the bounds of their authority for regulating installation of solar panel systems on members’ homes. Mastering this delicate balance will help HOAs maintain both aesthetics and property value while, to some degree, honoring the individualized wishes of their residents.
