Homeowners in Las Vegas are some of the fortunate few in the country who can monitor the behavior of their HOA boards. But it wouldn’t happen without Darcy Spears, creator of the HOA Hall of Shame report. There’s never a lack of misbehavior among Nevada Homeowners Associations to report on.
The latest is in the Forest Hills Homeowners Association where homeowners have often found their water shut off because of collapsed water pipes. Complain to a board member and they refer you to the management company, H&L Realty, which either refers you back to the board or hangs up on you. If you want that morning shower you have to find a contractor and pay for all the damage yourself. Of course, you have to keep paying those high HOA dues which theoretically are supposed to pay for basic maintenance.
It’s just another in a long, long list of reasons to discard the current HOA system.
