Heritage Isle HOA,in Viera, FL, is controlled by Lennar. There appears to be little if any enforcement of the covenants, resulting in an unattractive community.
As house prices fall it seems the new owners are not inclined to abide by community restrictions and in my opinion makes the neighborhood undesirable. The covenant restrictions for home exteriors are very specific and extensive and require HOA approval for changes, but if they are not enforced they do no good.
The management company doesn't seem to work for the homeowners but places their priorities with Lennar board members. The board is completely controlled by Lennar, and it appears they are not equitable in their decisions toward homeowners by placing costly burdens on the victim of covenant violations instead of the party committing covenant violations.
