ABC News (kind of) Discovers The HOA Scam!

The Nation’s news media are late to the table in discovering the national scam known as Homeowner Associations. One of the early ‘discoverers,’ though, was ABC News, although their first story was a little tepid. It’s linked below.

But the news agency kinda, sorta hinted that simple rules violations by homeowners could cost up to six figures before things get straightened out. Six figures? Some sad homeowners have spent more than a million dollars trying to straighten out an idiotic problem. Since HOAs are invariably backed by a huge insurance policy they just love for a homeowner to sue. It’s more satisfying than sex! The homeowner files suit, the HOA’s insurance policy kicks in and these criminals who run the HOA get a free ride while their insurance company tries to stretch the case out while whittling the homeowner’s life savings away.

More and more media outlets are ‘getting it.’ There’s a growing amount of knowledge among reporters and editors about the national scandal known as Homeowners Associations. The modern movement was born a couple of months after the 1964 Civil Rights Act was signed into law. It’s so strange that HOAs were founded to keep blacks, Jews and Orientals out of white neighborhoods. Gradually, the racism and antisemitism faded as the reason for the existence of HOAs. But increasingly, HOAs are getting a sullied reputation because they’ve turned into cash cows for racketeering lawyers.

The news media are, indeed, ‘getting it!’

Can’t We Wake These Idiot Congressmen Up?

Well, golly gee! A small group of Congressmen have discovered that tax jurisdictions have been selling tax liens to investors who, for a tiny bit of money, can buy up properties where taxes weren’t paid and auction them off to investors. That’s been going on forever. When I was a teenager I bought a tax lien in Seattle for 70 bucks. Never made a dime from it and I ended up giving it back to the city.

Fifty Million Dollars?!?!?!?

      No Comments on Fifty Million Dollars?!?!?!?

A high-rise residential tower in Baltimore is filing for bankruptcy after a homeowner won a lawsuit against the condo association. Instead of repairing his mold problems they fought him all the way through the court system. In the process, this idiotic condo board discovered the mold problems were real and now they’re having to do repairs on the entire high-rise. Their claimed losses are anywhere from ten million to fifty million dollars.

Anybody want to buy a ritzy Maryland apartment? Dirt cheap?
