HOA Problems Are International!

Although this blog is mainly aimed at an American audience, I’ve been getting international email about Homeowner Association problems around the world! Most of you already know it, but most other countries don’t use the terms “HOA, POA, CID”, etc.  For them it’s “Strata”, or high rise vertical real estate. And don’t think for a moment that strata are exempt from dictatorial and arbitrary management, revenge foreclosures, denial of rights, embezzlement, corruption, extortion and Mafia-like control.

The latest email directed me to a newspaper article in Malaysia. And it’s well-worth reading!

He has won more than 70 national and regional awards for Excellence in Journalism, Creative Writing and community involvement. His new book, "Neighbors At War: the Creepy Case Against Your Homeowners Association," is now available for purchase. In it, he discusses the American homeowners association movement, from its racist origins, to its transformation into a lucrative money machine for the nation's legal industry. From scams to outright violence to foreclosures and neighborhood collapses across the country, the reader will find this book enormously compelling and a necessary read for every homeowner. Knowledge is self-defense. No homeowner contemplating life in an HOA should neglect reading this book. No HOA board officer should overlook this examination of the pitfalls in HOA management. And no lawyer representing either side in an HOA dispute should gloss over what homeowners are saying or believing about the lawsuit industry.
