A bill that homeowners rights advocates say is one of the worst, most dangerous in the history of HOA law has just been approved by the California State Assembly by a 73 to 1 vote!
The bill, which is inevitably going to become law, has incredible implications for people living in smaller HOAs. It essentially wipes out the right of many California homeowners to vote on board officers, assessments, or changes in neighborhood covenants. Oh, they’ll get to vote. But the ballots won’t be secret. HOA elections won’t be overseen by any investigative office. Every vote will have to be cast in person. No longer do you have a say on your vacation home in the Golden State unless you fly there and personally cast your ballot. The vote totals can and will be manipulated at will by HOA board members because that’s what board members do when no one is looking.
What are these idiotic legislators thinking?
Ladies and gentlemen, get ready for the tsunami of organized crime corruption that’s going to be sweeping into California! Good grief, the U.S. Attorney and the FBI in Nevada have been hauling in guilty pleas by the fistful in the massive HOA corruption scheme there. Why is California any different?
And this law will make Homeowners Associations more vulnerable than Nevada HOAs have ever been.
This law is great for me, though. I’ll have lots more stories to write as the corruption erupts.
And it will.
