News Seeks Out Morris Sperry for Opinion on Flying U.S. Flag in HOAs.
Quinn Sperry of Morris Sperry was interviewed on the news last week about a serious controversy in a Utah HOA. Residents want to fly the American flag and the association board is sending them fines and wants the flags removed. This problem repeats around the country when HOAs take harsh positions on flying the flag inside the community. No symbol evokes more emotion, patriotism, and willingness to fight an HOA than the stars and stripes. Morris Sperry regularly advises both owners in communities and community associations (HOAs, condominiums, townhomes, and homeowners associations) about flying the flag of the United States of America. There is an absolute legal right to fly the American flag from or on certain property owned or under the exclusive use of the homeowner and with certain legal requirements. Working with Morris Sperry and taking advantage of our experience and knowledge with this issue, associations can make and enforce reasonable requirements for flying of the American flag while allowing owners to express their patriotism and while respecting their legal right to fly the flag. More importantly, with the wise counsel of Morris Sperry, associations and owners can avoid the media circus and hostility created by the association that was the subject of this story.
