Legal Question in Real Estate Law in Indiana

avoiding neighborhood associations

Hypothetical scenario:

Suppose I plan to buy property out in the country. One day a real estate developer comes along and puts up a housing addition adjacent to my property. Eventually a petition to form a neighborhood association is submitted. Since I moved to the country to protect my soverenty, how do I ensure this neighborhood association will have no bearing on what I can or can't do on my property?

Re: avoiding neighborhood associations

If the land you purchase is not part of an association then neighbors who form one cannot force you to be a part of it. An association agreement is formed for a block of land and every part of the block becomes bound by it. But once you have purchased and own the land without an association it cannot be forced on you.
