I've been doing some research this week for a consulting client this week, trying to find her an ideal retreat property. One 10 acre parcel I found looked promising, so I made some inquiries. I was told that the land was in a Homeowner's Association (HOA) and that there were "a few" CC&Rs. So I asked, "How many?" and "Can you FAX me the CC&Rs to review?" The agent called back an hour later, and sheepishly told me: "I can't FAX them to you, because I found out that the CC&R document runs 207 pages." Needless to say, my client asked me to keep looking, elsewhere.
