i live in st. charles, mo. i bought the townhome in september 1998 at that time i didn't receive any covenants, instructions on where to pay my monthly fees or who to pay them to. in march 2000 we replaced our existing rusting six-pane window door and screen door with a solid cedar door and new pella screen door. we made these improvements with our own money. in august 2000 we received a letter from the association stating that our door was not compliant with the covenants, and that i needed to submit my changes to the board for approval. i informed them i didn't have a copy of the covenants so they sent me a copy. the covenant in question never specifically states anything about doors, it only says exterior structures. i submitted pictures of my door to the board. in january 2000 they said that i had to replace my new door with the original door or a door that was similiar by april 15 2000. in the same covenants it states that they have to respond to my submitance in 30 days which they failed to do. i informed them of this and also informed them that i wasn't going to replace my door. i asked them what type of action they were going to pursue at least two times and never got an answer. now june 2000 i received of summons to go to court over the above stated matter. what are my options.
