From WikiPedia.....A misnomer is a word or term that suggests a meaning that is known to be wrong. Misnomers often arise because the thing named received its name long before its true nature was known. A misnomer may also be simply a word that is used incorrectly or misleadingly. "Misnomer" does not mean "misunderstanding" or "popular misconception".
I received an envelope from a resident that enclose a request for MY permission for her to install a 8' privacy fence to the back of her condo townhouse...she had obtained the approval signatures of the 2 neighboring residents and had scheduled an appearance in front of the HOA board for the next week...MEANWHILE, she was on vacation.
First, I'm not signing the permission as the agent and the HOA board, in all likelihood, wants the owner's authorization not mine.
When I sent her request to the owners via e-mail, I suggested some items that should be of a CONCERN to them...since the fence would be on the common area of the property, it would be subject to repair and maintenance issues caused by the yard/lawn crew and the trash service.
Additionally, the construction she was proposing was less than permanent and that once she departed, the next residents may not appreciate it....meanwhile, they would have to maintain it.
At my suggestion, they responded that the HOA would have to approve the installation FIRST and that she would have to MAINTAIN it and REMOVE it when she left the property.
I communicated their response to my tenant and have heard NOTHING from her since.
....just because is says TENANT IMPROVEMENT does not mean that is a LANDLORD/Property Owner improvement....names can be deceiving sometimes.
