Homeowners Associations don’t like veterans. They also don’t like veteran’s widows. Widows, you see, threaten the marriages of all other couples in the neighborhood. So ladies who get themselves elected to HOA boards try just about anything to boot widows and single women from their homes.
Hyperbole? Don’t bet on it. We’ve seen situations like this happen all over the country.
This one widow in Texas may have won a temporary reprieve, but that’s because she went to the news media. Without that, she’d most likely be on the street thanks to her oh-so-charitable HOA.

Another Veteran’s Widow Faced With Foreclosure

Credit reporting agencies see an incredibly lucrative opportunity in Homeowners Associations. And corrupt HOA boards see a marvelous way to further harass homeowners who dare to fight back against the Lawn Nazis. Hold back your dues because your HOA is doing something blatantly illegal, and it’ll lower your credit score.
Hire a lawyer to fight back against an unjust fine or lien, and yup, you might not be able to get that car financed or that mortgage modification approved.

Like most HOA issues outside of the one I live in, someone sends me something to take a look at. Shadowmoss was today’s “Take A Look At This!”
It appears in the first video that an older person with one leg and a wheelchair has been contacted by an attorney over $200 in delinquent dues. The process has begun to foreclose and take his home. There is one really decent man among the homeowners that says he’ll pay the $200 on behalf of that homeowner because the money means nothing to him. THANK YOU MR. CONCERNED NEIGHBOR WITH COMMON SENSE AND A BIG HEART! He does question why nobody on the board bothered to talk to the homeowner before unleashing an attorney on him. The answer seems to be the property manager did it!
Four days ago I blogged about a retired Air Force pilot suffering from leukemia in San Antonio. The city is trying to fine him because of his uncut lawn. Other bloggers put out the word as well. I’ve now learned that volunteers in Texas are stepping forward to help this man in his time of need.
Isn’t America a great country?
