Another Outrageous HOA Board

Don’t ever tell yourself the world of Homeowners Associations can’t get any wackier. The stories are sometimes too outrageous to believe. Here’s another.

The president of the Coronado Place Homeowners Association in Tucson is handing out speeding fines and then threatening to shut off the water if those fines aren’t paid. Under Arizona state law, that’s illegal. But it took public exposure by a great reporter at KVOA News to embarrass this women into backing down.

    Wow, Ward Lucas! They are only threatening to shut of the water of their victims who allegedly committed speeding infractions? How does one not know whether these alleged speeding violations are legitimate, or whether they have been fabricated as has happened in many an HOA. I am surprised they are only threatening to shut off the water and have not taken their homes already for the alleged speeding fines and thousands of dollars of bogus legal fees and collection costs! I guess the HOA homeowners in this HOA should feel blessed!

    Speeding tickets is a great example of HOAs having too much power. Only police should give speeding tickets…but this HOA gives them, and has even more power than the police. HOA is the judge/jury, and can threaten to turn off water, and eventually foreclose. Where does the owner go for help, their only option is an attorney. I can see why managers and HOA attorneys lobby together. Managers stay unaccountable, and attorneys secure that they have a steady stream of business because owners have no options. The HOA scam is worse than anyone knows. Follow the money…
