The River Club Home Owners Association (HOA) — They proclaim The River Club to be a deed restricted community while at the same time not enforcing the deed restrictions.
My family moved to The River Club Lakewood Ranch based on numerous published documents declaring the River Club to be an 'exceptional subdivision with deed restrictions that would ensure a high standard of living'. We paid a premium to live in a 'high standard' community with deed restrictions. Unfortunately, the River Club HOA refuses to enforce the deed restrictions and we live next to a major eye sore as you can see in the pictures.
We are embarrassed when we have visitors and we have no chance of selling our home for what it should be worth.
The eye sore next to us wasn't like this when we moved here. But the home owner has stopped properly maintaining his home and we are stuck living next to it.
We had no idea that this could happen. We thought that by paying more to live in a deed restricted community that we would be protected from something like this happening to us.
