Homeowner faces HOA fines for putting Christmas lights up too early

A Florida homeowner is calling his homeowners association grinches after receiving a warning for decorating his home too early.

The Moffa family hired a company to put up Christmas lights outside their home on Nov. 6.

“That was their only availability, and I can’t climb up on the roof myself,” said Michael Moffa, who does not plan to take down the lights. Now he is facing fines for violating his HOA agreement.

Moffa said he had no idea it was against the rules until the family received a letter saying they were in violation of HOA rules stating decorations can’t be put up until Thanksgiving.

If the family does not correct the violation, they could be fined $100 a day, up to $1,000, according to the letter.
