Dark Clouds Over Saddlewood Downs

guest blog by Nila Ridings

Homeowners are frustrated and tension is high in this Kansas HOA. One of the residents asked me to speak to a large group of homeowners with hopes of shedding some light on how HOAs are structured and lawsuits are financed.

The history of this HOA started with a developer that went broke. Sigh. Yes, another one. Residents claim the CC&Rs state between 1 and 15 people must serve on the BOD. For now they have 5, but until this meeting most of the homeowners had no idea who and how many people are serving on the board. For the most part, the HOA has been dormant for several years. It suddenly erupted back to life with the filing of a lawsuit.

“You’re just going to love living here in The Montreat COA!” says the real estate agent. “Well you will if it doesn’t kill you first!” That’s what she should have added to the sales pitch.

NYPD Employee Steals $366,380 From Woodbrooke Estates HOA

guest blog by Nila Ridings

One would think a guy that worked in the evidence and property room of the NYPD as a control specialist would have a high level of integrity. Nope. Wrong. Danny Juliano was the president of Woodbrooke Estates HOA in Staten Island and convinced the board members he was getting a cheaper price on pool supplies over in New Jersey so they handed him the cash to make those purchases.

I don’t know about the readers of this blog, but I’d be questioning the need for $366,380 worth of pool supplies since October of 2011. I’d also be asking for receipts. 629 condo and townhouse owners just took a financial beating because their HOA board members were sleeping on the job!

HOA Fines Marine Veteran For Decals

This kind of thing has happened before. HOAs are no big fans of war heroes. It’s hard to imagine. But many HOAs across the country don’t like the American flag being flown. They don’t like displays of patriotism. Actually, it does make sense in a perverse sort of way. HOAs are basically fascist organizations, many of them run by control freaks.

But click on the picture below to see and hear the story of Frank Larison who’s being fined $50 a day because he has Marine decals on his car. Just remember the Woodlands II On The Creek Homeowners Association in Dallas. HOA board president Dorenda Hardy signed the letter. She should be ashamed. And any prospective home buyer in Texas should avoid this neighborhood like the plague.
