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.

    Thank you for sharing this video and news account, Ward Lucas. It is great to see a news station that will report on the HOA crimes and a local law enforcement that will investigate. The sad fact is what is seen in this video is so common across the USA, but in other locales like, Monroe County, Pennsylvania, no one will, or would investigate these crimes, or report on them! This is a sad, but true fact, it appears, in states and locales across America. In fact in locales, like Monroe County, Pennsylvania the innocent HOA victims, who so much as asked a question about an HOAs fiances, or an inappropriate demand for monies, even if it is for clarification, these innocent HOA homeowners have been, and probably still are, terrorized and threatened with attempted bodily harm, or death threatened, however one wants to view these attempted crimes, from their homes, victims too, of on going property damages no one will be accountable for, slapp sued, knowingly fraudulently dragged through kangaroo, corrupt and colluded courts, routinely lied to, victims of the most unthinkable legal and judicial crimes and injustices and fraudulently foreclosed upon! I do not believe these abuses, crimes, property thefts and the refusal of local, or state investigative and enforcement agencies to investigate, and the refusal of the press to report on these crimes against innocent HOA homeowners is limited to Monroe County, Pennsylvania, either! These HOA homeowner abuses, crimes and/or property thefts, sometimes too, the legal and judicial abuses are in states and locales across America and so is the secrecy and cover ups concerning these crimes and injustices! It is long overdue that the truth is told to all Americans about HOAs in America. Americans deserve to know what has been going on, the entire range of HOA crimes, HOA injustices, HOA legal and judicial abuses, corruption, collusion, property thefts and even more sinister activities it appears in some areas and all who are involved. Especially, important is that Americans know that are elected officials have known for years and some may even be involved. Possibly judges and attorneys and others are involved too, and most all our legislators have done nothing! Most all our legislators have ignored the pleas of innocent HOA homeowners, HOA advocates, HOA experts, HOA health professionals, true HOA homeowner experts, true HOA researchers and authors. We need to hold every elected official in America accountable for the “HOA: Crisis in America,” (Solomon) and every investigative and enforcement agency, no matter state, or federal responsible for not protecting the innocent from these true “domestic terrorists!” Those in these extended, well connected gangs of HOA thieves, thugs, bullies and despots need to be held accountable, no matter who they are, or who they know. This includes judges, and/or attorneys, too. No one should be above the laws in the HOA crimes, abuses and injustices. The press, no matter where in America, needs to do a much better job on reporting on these HOA crimes, HOA homeowner abuses and injustices and HOA property thefts as well!

      I agree that people need to come together. It is very difficult to get local governments to care about what is happening in HOAs, often because they encourage the proliferation of HOAs. People need to stop being afraid and effectively “unionize” against their HOAs. One lone owner speaking up at a meeting can be retaliated against, but it is more difficult to single out dissenters if there are many standing together. Is it possible to effectively “unionize” homeowners? And, yes, it is absurd that we have to do this.

        Agreed, Angela B. However, the retaliation, legal and judicial abuses, terrorizing, death threats, threats of physical harm, property damages, damages to reputation and character assassination, identity theft, housing theft and more, to to those who have come forward and help themselves and tried to help others, too, is criminal in the USA! This is what needs to be investigated, Anyone who comes forward in any of the HOA abuses, criminality and property thefts should be protected under the laws and especially, The Whistle Blower Act.”
