Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Thomas L. Reed, Murfreesboro, Tennessee, for the appellant, Roger Haley.

Attorneys 2:

Caleb B. McCain, Franklin, Tennessee; and Brad W. Hornsby, Murfreesboro, Tennessee, for the appellee, Stratford Hall Home Owners' Association.

Judge(s): DINKINS

Homeowners' association brought suit against homeowner who refused to paint his home as requested. After a bench trial, the court determined that the board of the homeowners' association had properly exercised its discretion and ordered homeowner to paint his house. Homeowner appeals, contending that the appearance of his home was consistent with the appearance of homes and the common areas of the subdivision. Upon our de novo review, we have determined that the board had authority under the bylaws governing the association and the subdivision's covenants to require the homeowner to paint his home, and that the board's action was appropriate. Accordingly, we affirm the judgment.
