Newspapers Covering the HOA Scam

Across the country, more and more major news agencies are either doing, or are planning extensive stories on the HOA mess. It’s more than a mess. It’s a national outrage. It perpetuates the outrageous lie that a Homeowners Association will protect your property values. Not in my experience!

Here’s the link to an excellent story beginning with the victimization of an innocent family.

    I think that the word is getting out that Home owner associations in many cases are not dedicated people trying to make a community work. The word is apparently getting out that many are now a place to make a lot of money off people who have no way of fighting the directors. I read that one guy was on the board of directors of over 800 homeowners associations. How is an individual on over 800 boards capable of even knowing how to find the different communities much less do what is necessary to make a community function?
    I think also people can now understand that the ‘disgruntled’ homeowner is often a person being abused by the board. There are lot of people in the associations which are dedicated and they need to police out those using the associations as a plunder place.
