Being involved with my neighborhood Home Owners Association I can tell you that it is essential to document the details of any variance approval or denial. It is crucial to understand that Home Owners Associations are legal entities and operate under "The Articles of Incorporation filed with the Secretary of State provide the legal basis of the association in the form of an Incorporated Non-Profit Corporation." HOA-USA.com. Thus any variance requests fall under the associations Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions as well as bylaws and are all publicly recorded deed restrictions. The board of the association will form/designate or appoint an Architectural Review Committee (ARC) which is responsible for reviewing such applications. Usually the association will have specific forms for such applications, approvals or denials. It is important to meticulously, and clearly document such applications so that the "approval does not appear to be arbitrary and to prevent “setting precedence” for future requests" hoamanagement.com. Further more, when in doubt, it is always best to refer to current HOA law or seek professional legal counsel.

Dear Grace,

Email may not be legally shows the variance has been accepted. It would be a good idea to visit HOA rep or manager and get a signed letter or document. The HOAs keep records of the variances, some even place them online to HOA website, some of them just keep them in their archives.

Email and txt messages are being used as proof, evidence, consent, contractual obligations and so on. If you want to double check, visit or phone HOA. Make note of their name for future reference.
