You Rotten Canadians!

And here I thought Canadians were all so polite. Well, in my experience, they’re a heck of a lot more polite than your typical American.

Still, when people get involved in a Homeowners Association, on either side of the border, tempers can flare, guns get pulled, people get injured and are sometimes even shot to death. So far, all the HOA murders have happened on the American side.

But click this link below and look at the chaos that happens in a typical annual strata meeting (in Canada strata refers to high-rise condo associations). Canadians don’t have the same Bill of Rights protections that we do. But it doesn’t matter what side of the border you’re on, you really do recognize when you’re being robbed of your rights by the arrogant lawn Nazis.

No wonder I’ve been selling so many copies of my book, Neighbors At War, to Canadians!!!

    HOA management company insurance scams

    I stumbled across six insurance claims in a three period made by the HOA board about a year ago and it got me thinking. I don’t know how the insurance industry is ran so could be very wrong.

    The scheme takes an HOA management company that manages multi properties that use different insurance companies for their blanket insurance to coverage and another company hired by the management company willing to participate. I will be using the example of a lawn company.

    -HOA management company and lawn company create the issue, example major water leak
    -HOA board (probably not involved) makes the claim to the insurance company
    -Check from insurance company goes into HOA board account that is managed by the management company.
    -Insurance company doesn’t know who the management company is because the HOA board made the claim
    -HOA management company and lawn company fixes the water leak and pockets the excess

    With an HOA management company managing multi properties with multi different insurance companies it’s a scheme that would a hard to detect since the HOA board is making the insurance claim and the HOA management company’s name is left out of it.

    I rented a place that was managed by the same HOA management company with the same lawn company tending the property that are managing the property where I bought my condo. I remembered the water being turned off at least 4 times at the rental to fix major water leaks. That’s what got me wondering.
