With its sordid history of corrupt and out-of-control Homeowners Associations, it’s astonishing that the Illinois Legislature has once again failed to provide any relief to beleaguered homeowners.
Illinois could have changed the course of the growing national HOA scam. It failed. Sponsors of the pro-homeowner bill say they’ll try again next year. I have a suggestion for them, though. Make it illegal for an HOA board to buy insurance against lawsuits by homeowners.
No, I’ll go one better: As you divide up legal costs among homeowners, make individual board members and managers pay double the assessment charged to everyone else.
