"What can a new homeowner do to fight a Home Owner’s Association against wood fences, if the sales agent gave the buyer originally that the neighborhood was open to wood fences?"
Me and my wife were basically sold on the fact we could get a wood fence, for our two large dogs, and now we are being told we cannot. The sales agent told us we could when we decided to build the home? Any help?

    Is that in writing by the agent that wood fences were allowed? If not you are not going to be able to convince the HOA without a substantial amount of time and money.

    Are NO fences allowed? Are there other fences in your neignborhood already?

    You probably have no recourse against either the agent or the homeowner’s association. You agreed to the rules when you bought the house and it was your responsibility to read and understand them before doing so.
    You could possibly try to sue your agent for knowingly making false statements but it will be very hard to prove.
    Why not get some kind of fence that your association will aprove of or an invisible fence?

    You have no recourse what so ever against the HOA, it was your duty to read and understand all the HOA by laws before you bought into the HOA,

    Now maybe a case against the real estate agent if you have anything in writing from the agent but not sure what you could get as in regard to damages
