Jan Bergemann, Our Hero!

Jan Bergemann describes himself as a retired chef from Germany. I’ve never tasted his recipes but I have long admired his hubris in standing up to the national disgrace known as Homeowners Associations.

Jan, not in a million years would I have thought this bill would passĀ out of the Florida Legislature’s Rules Committee. How the heck did you pull this off? Florida has some of the worst HOA nightmare stories in the country. But somehow, someone, somewhere is starting to pay attention.


Still, I remain a skeptic about this bill actually becoming law. If it does, I’ll start a movement to build a monument to Cyber Citizens For Justice (ccfj.org).

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.
