Wow, so many threads I have never posted in WP.

Not sure if this is relevant to "adult" discussions but a recent article highlighted how a home owner got a warning letter from a contingent of neighbors about the state of their home.

This is something I am constantly paranoid about, I live in an upscale suburb and although our house is comfortable, it;s starting to look really old compared to my neighbors. My neighbors are constantly renovating/improving their homes so they starting to look like expensive display homes.

I am wondering at what point I'll get a letter?

For many years one of my neighbours had a car sitting on his driveway. It had last been driven in 1993. Did he get told to move it? Not quite... he got polite nudges to get it repaired and back in use which only happened this year! By some miracle it didn't need any welding.

I think the nosy expletive deleteds who send letters as detailed in this thread need to take their heads out of their posteriors and mind their own business.

Florida is a lot like that.

That is why I live in the woods. Way in the woods.

The letter is quite brutal

You can't choose your family, workmates or neighbors.

I received a polite letter at my old flat, back when I had excellent neighbours. The woman was an East Enders type, no nonsense, doesn't take crap from anyone type. She looked after me, she was wonderful. Her and her husband gave me a polite letter asking to neaten up my garden because they wanted to sell their flat (To an old witch and her son who annoyed others too). I was happy to do it.

this is one of the reasons why i want to live out in the country on a big ranch so i dont have to worry about nosy neighbors where each of your neighbors may get you in trouble.I did not choose our house but I would never choose to live in a HOA neighborhood.However if some neighborhood tells I have to decorate for Xmas i am going to refuse because I hate Christmas and all that power and lights are pricey.I am not really into any rush to own any personal residence for my own living purposes.I would rather rent than have a mortgage if given the choice.You may be out of luck if you live in a HOA.

It's starting to rub off on my neighbors. Even during lockdown they were trying to outdo each other

Man I saw this posted on reddit and I don't know what to believe now but they claimed this letter turned out it was written by a landlord who owns a house on that street wanting to sell it and they posed as a neighbor living there. The person who received it went around asking their neighbors about it.
