Association Has No Authority to Allow Encroachment into Common Areas

In Boyle v Huron Dunes Association, an unpublished Michigan Court of Appeals opinion, one lot owner filed suit against the association because the association granted to another lot owner permission to erect a deck which extended into a park area reserved to the use of all owners.

The court said that allowing a permanent deck to be installed encroaching on the park area would be inconsistent with the grant to all lot owners to use the park areas.
