Nila Ridings on National Radio Show

My frequent guest blogger, Nila Ridings, is going to be a guest of HOA expert Shu Bartholomew this Saturday. Many of you know Shu as one of the most stalwart Homeowners Rights advocates in the country. Her weekly radio show airs in and around Fairfax, Virginia, but better yet, she broadcasts on the Internet so she has a national and even international audience. Shu interviews the top figures in the fight against abuse by rogue Homeowners Associations. And, indeed, Nila Ridings is one of the nation’s top fighters against this disingenuous, tyrannical and corrupt movement. 

Nila is famous in Kansas as the leader of a group of about twenty people who fought for a new law in Kansas that reigns in some of the monstrous actions of rogue HOA boards. During that time, Nila was nicknamed ‘The General’ by her associates. Her story is a great one. 

Shu Bartholomew’s show is called “On The Commons” and it can be heard live or through a downloaded podcast where you can listen at your convenience.

One warrior interviewing another warrior. It promises to be another great show!

Be there or be square!

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.

    Teena M,

    Thank you for your kind words of support. I don’t recognize your name (unless you are using a pseudonym here)but I hope you will come forward and work with the handful of us that have fought this battle for over six years.

    Living in the war zone, our small Army becomes exhausted mentally, physically, and financially but we cannot give up the fight to expose the wrong-doings in this HOA. We have done everything humanly possible to educate all homeowners with factual information. Facts we hope will open the eyes of our neighbors and help us put a stop to this massive waste and abuse of our hard-earned dollars. Millions of dollars have been spent and we have little to nothing to show for it. We are saddled with a million dollar loan that will require a payback of over two million dollars if it is EVER fully repaid.

    As I see it, with the compromised conditions of the structures and their exact identity unknown combined with the debt, we are going to be better off in the long run to seek the path of re-development, sell out and move on with our lives outside of QFCA.
