Often owners are surprised to learn their HOA does not permit rental of units. If this is the situation either no rentals or no additional rentals, check to see if there is a hardship exception. Often HOAs will make exceptions where there is a change in life circumstance such that not leasing the property causes an undue hardship.
If that does not work consider selling the property with owner financing. Here you may get a larger payment upfront and transfer responsibility for increases in taxes, HOA costs and repairs to someone who might as easily been your tenant. Many people seeking owner financing will pay as much as rent would have been. This is the simplest way around the rental prohibition.

Read your bylaws, call your property manager and get on the landlord list.
Absentee ownership can crush neighborhood value, so unmitigated landlord rights can be a major detriment to the quality of a community. Nothing against renters in general, but the rules make sense most of the time.
Furthermore, values in a community or building can be devastated by fiscal mismanagement and among other things, too many renters.
With that in mind, most lending guidelines for conventional or FHA funding have a number of requirements for certifying the fiscal health of the HOA and the overall value of the community. Quite often, it's those guidelines that make a community get their act together - when a building is not "FHA approved" for FHA buyers, then you can count on steep drops in value...
Does that sound familiar?
Since there are probably no two exactly alike;
you should rear yours and find the answers to your questions.
