In days of old, when a neighbor was having a problem and couldn’t maintain his property because of disease, disability, aging, family emergency, bankruptcy, all the other neighbors would pitch in and help out. Well, don’t expect that in HOA Amerika.
No, these days it’s all about humiliating, fining, suing and foreclosing on the properties of the less fortunate. And the new leader of the anti-homeowner rights movement may be Gary Walsh, president of the Meadow Walk Homeowners Association in Sarasota County, Florida. His story is linked below.
Yep, ten percent of Meadow Walk’s homeowners are in the process of losing their homes in this ongoing recession. But whatever fast is, it’s not fast enough for Walsh. He wants the Florida legislature to fast-track the ability of HOAs to seize the homes of scofflaws. Damn their Constitutional rights, just take their homes, auction them off and put the proceeds into the HOA budget.
While Walsh complains that defaulting homeowners aren’t paying their fair share of the HOA budget, note carefully that Walsh complains about weeds on his neighbor’s property. Yet he has a tractor that he can use to help maintain his bankrupt neighbor.
What a guy!
