It’s another HOA Hall of Shame report from our fearless TV reporter in Las Vegas. This time it’s a relatively peaceful HOA that’s being shamed.

Well, I might have spoken too freely. This HOA isn’t really peaceful. It’s full of accusations of board mismanagement, misspent money, and board meetings being held secretly when a pro-homeowner member of the board couldn’t possibly attend because of her work schedule.

Ah yes, and it’s about writing a blank check to lawyers, even lawyers of former bad board members and managers. And illegal transfers of money, such a nasty business, this handling of OPM (other people’s money).

Yes, it seems like another Las Vegas Homeowners Association ought to be avoided like the plague. If you buy a home in the Pueblo at Santa Fe HOA, you’re likely to be screwed.


Sad, huh?
