The Lawsuits Against Homeowners Associations Begin

The daughter of a California woman who was stabbed to death has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Glenoaks Townhomes Association. Her mother was a member of the HOA. Her husband is the alleged suspect.

The lawsuit claims the HOA and its security company knew that she had a restraining order against her husband when she moved into the gated community, and her neighbors had an obligation to protect her.

California juries are known for awarding outrageous amounts in outrageous lawsuits. This one will bear watching. Lawsuits are going to spell the death of the HOA as we know it.

    Thank you for all of your blogs. I am making it my mission to inform everyone around me about the HOA scandal and contacting my Senetors as well. I’m trying to sell my property in Las Vegas and the fees and charges go up every day I talk to someone at Hampton & Hampton (one of the collection agencies – lawyers- being sued. Your blog has been most helpful.

      Hi there, I’m glad to hear you’re being helped. As always, though, I urge caution and deliberation before taking any radical steps that could profoundly impact your financial and psychological health. God bless you, my friend.
