Ward Lucas is a longtime investigative journalist and television news anchor. He has won more than 70 national and regional awards for Excellence in Journalism, Creative Writing and community involvement. His new book, "Neighbors At War: the Creepy Case Against Your Homeowners Association," is now available for purchase. In it, he discusses the American homeowners association movement, from its racist origins, to its transformation into a lucrative money machine for the nation's legal industry. 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.

    Here is an HOA homeowner attorney who states “they get it” too, Ward.

    “If you live in a homeowner’s association or condominium association, there is an excellent chance that sooner or later you will find yourself butting heads with those in charge of the HOA, or one of the many attorneys they have on retainer. Left a garbage can out too long? Fined for parking overnight on the street? Fell behind in assessments and now find yourself owing thousands in collection fees? Facing foreclosure because of their accounting error? Woke up one day to find that they sold your house to pay assessments without your knowledge? Had your water shut off for four years? From the mundane to the bizarre, the Anti-HOA Lawyer has seen it all. And fights on the side of the homeowner.

    Jonathan Dessaules has aggressively litigated against homeowner associations and condominium associations for more than a decade, defending against HOA lawsuits and, when appropriate, suing HOAs and their lawyers and other agents on behalf of homeowners who find themselves disenfranchised, disadvantaged, or completely under siege.

    Secret board meetings, excessive and unreasonable fines, out-of-control boards of directors, financial mismanagement and theft, selective CC&R enforcement, director or manager misconduct, and illegal debt collection practices…we will discuss and dissect it all.”
