Outrageous! Buy a New Home - Don’t Sue and Shut Up
Homebuilders will stop at nothing – Now Buyers must agree not to Speak

Beware of New Builder Clause – Homebuilder requires that homebuyer sign clauses forcing buyers to give up their constitutional rights.  It’s a decision between constitutional rights and the American Dream.

Self-serving Politics of HOA Management Industry Influences HOA Community Board Members
Wednesday, 10 August 2016

Special Report – Part Two:  HOA Bureaucrats Overstep Their Authority
Bluffview Greens Books & Records Closed to Members – Lack of Service – No Transparency... While Bluffview Greens members were not paying close attention, the ugly reality set in. Homeowners had paid a big price, and been deprived of their rights.  The Board of Directors’ spending habits defied logic, when attorney fees exceeded the yearly budget during the first quarter of 2016... The board walked the neighborhood trying to convince members to take their names off the petition.  In fact one homeowner made it clear that she would not remove her name; but the board deliberately removed the name anyway, without permission... SEE PART ONE -  Editorial Feature - Are Homeowners’ Rights a Myth?

HOA Services Not Delivered
Monday, 08 August 2016

HOA Board Members are paying for services not delivered
It appears the Board members have no solutions to the dilemma either, yet HOA members continue to pay for management services that are not being provided. The question is, will Bluffview Greens members be reimbursed for the time First Service Residential management is shut down? ...The fact is the annual Landscape Maintenance Contract price of $10,000.00 actually includes three (3) seasonal floral plantings per year. A service we discovered that has been routinely ignored. ..., over the past four (4) years there have only been two (2) plantings.

Dinosaurs Make HOA Board Members Grumpy
Saturday, 11 June 2016

HOA Roaring Over Dinosaurs in Texas Woman's Yard
On The Commons is a weekly radio show, dedicated to discussing the many issues surrounding homeowner associations (HOAs).  Those darling dinosaurs, happily grazing in a Texas yard brought smiles to the faces of children of all ages.  The grumpy board members of the inevitable HOA, not so much.  They decided that the dynamic duo had to leave "or else...."   Notwithstanding the grumpy ones, the residents of this neighborhood all wanted a pair of dinosaurs of their own - at least for a while.  And thus began an amazing journey and a lesson for all of us, including the grumpy group. Are you listening?

Worthless Connecticut Homes Crumble

With Connecticut Foundations Crumbling, ‘Your Home Is Now Worthless’ 
Across nearly 20 towns in northeastern Connecticut, a slow-motion disaster is unfolding, as local officials and homeowners wrestle with an extraordinary phenomenon. Hundreds, possibly thousands, of home foundations that have been poured since the 1980s are cracking, with fissures so large you can slip a hand inside. “This is such an emotional roller coaster,” said Tim Heim, a homeowner who started the group Connecticut Coalition Against Crumbling Basements.

What recourse exists for the private property owner in a fight with a HOA?

Listen and learn, because the defense of freedom and liberty starts in your backyard.
