Learning to love my HOA

Here's a funny article on learning to love the HOA. Here at the Member to Member sight we do a lot of critical analysis and education (some call complaining and indoctrination)--and its good to get a bit of a laugh in and look at the good side of HOA (POA) governance. Here is a cute article--you may want to read the whole thing--click through, its brief and funny:

Learning to love my HOA: "I have mixed emotions about neighborhood homeowners associations, or HOAs. I don't really want anybody telling me what I can and can't do with my own property. On the other hand, I definitely want someone telling my neighbors what they can and can't do.

In the past, I've been critical of my own HOA. For two years, I battled the president and his henchmen - I mean, the board - over a portable basketball goal, which they said was prohibited by the covenants. I maintained it wasn't. The stalemate was broken when the board resigned and the president was exiled to the isle of Elba, off the coast of Italy.

Excuse me, wrong megalomaniac. Actually, I think he still lives in the neighborhood, keeping a low profile. As a postscript to that story, many of my neighbors now have portable basketball goals, just because they can."

HOA board member's bad behavior catches up with him - www.ktnv.com

This is an interesting case about HOAs and how a board member was clinging to the board without having proper elections (like some we know)..besides the power grab and unreasonableness--the members found a unique way to go after him and the board breaking so many laws--they went through the real estate division!!!!

Read their story, its worth it and does resemble us a little bit.

HOA board member's bad behavior catches up with him - www.ktnv.com: "The state found plenty of reason in the homeowners' complaints. They recently sent a letter to Bitsky, his wife and their friend -- who make up the entire three-person Autumn Chase board.
The letter says the Real Estate Division has "obtained sufficient evidence to commence a disciplinary action... and intends to file a complaint for hearing before the Commission for Common Interest Communities."
In the letter, the Autumn Chase board is accused of violating more than 16 state laws, including failing to audit HOA funds; failing to hold proper elections; and conducting financial transactions not in the association's interest and for their own personal gain such as using association money to install security cameras on their home."
