It is never ok, but it happens. It is up to the neighborhood assoc. To enforce the rules. If you buy the home, compliance will fall to you even if the prior owner did not comply

It sounds as if the home has been abandoned. The homeowner's association may have a cause of action against the homeowner. However, when a home has been abandoned there is often a financial hardship on the part of the seller and it's a little like getting blood from a stone. It would certainly be worth a phone call to the seller. Neighbors might find comfort in the fact that a new owner will likely live on site and maintain the property in accordance with the HOA regs.
