Is it possible that tens of millions of Americans – quietly residing and paying their assessments in condominiums and homeowner associations nationwide – are not happy campers?

They met presidents, movie stars, rock ‘n’ roll singers, stirred controversy, and created an Adopt-a-Soldier program that ultimately changed the lives of more than 100,000 soldiers who were headed to Vietnam. Along the way this Army Mom wrote thousands of pages of poetry and text, but sadly was never published … Until now!

Wow. What is it about Association-Governed Living that brings out the Bully in certain board members?

These two reports give you a glimpse into the ugliness that seems so pervasive in common interest communities. In fact, you can hardly describe this sort of behavior as promoting any sense of harmonious community.

Jacob Atalla, vice president of sustainability initiatives at KB Home, views the “scenes” he can use inside Apple’s Home app to control the various smart home devices inside a model home in the company’s Promenade development on Communications Hill in San Jose. The company is now offering packages of smart home features that are designed to work with Apple iPhones and iPads for houses in that neighborhood and in a development in Fremont.

Based upon results of a 2015 HOA survey conducted by the Coalition for Community Housing Policy in the Public Interest, Chppi is conducting a brand new 2017 HOA survey.

The 2017 HOA survey focuses on homeowner advocates’ top 2 HOA concerns – lack of transparency and homeowner apathy in their communities.

“The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new backbone, new ears, and new eyes. Unless a particular man made New Year resolutions, he would make no resolutions. Unless a man starts afresh about things, he will certainly do nothing effective.” ― G.K. Chesterton

Saving you from HOA Hell
Introduction
Ward Lucas' book Neighbors At War! The Creepy Case Against Your Homeowners Association is more than a survival guide to keep you out of trouble in your HOA. It's a Paul Revere alarm about how we've given up access to our own Constitution.

Ward Lucas is a longtime television anchor and investigative reporter. During his forty year career he has won dozens of prestigious awards including Emmy awards, Associated Press awards, the George Polk Award, and the CSICOP Responsibility in Journalism Award.

His stories have always generated controversy and have uncovered corruption in police departments, government agencies and even wrongdoing in the newsroom and the executive staff of a major daily newspaper.

Lucas is a popular speaker with a presentation that exposes the kinds of scams that victimize Americans every day.

His current book, 'Neighbors at War: The Creepy Case Against Your Homeowners Association', is bound to stir up more controversy since it attacks an institution which has become ingrained in American life. His research demonstrates that the HOA movement is fundamentally flawed and in desperate need of reform. In one major U.S. city, FBI raids and a current Federal Grand Jury investigation have found scores of homeowners associations tangled in a web of corruption that defies explanation. Similar investigations, Lucas believes, could be opened in cities across the country.

Anyone considering buying a home in a HOA would be advised to read this book. In fact, anyone already living in an HOA who suspects something in the neighborhood just doesn't 'feel right', might want to dig deeper to see what's really going on in the local HOA boardroom.

It should come as no surprise to those who love and respect the U.S. Constitution that America, today, is a far different place than was envisioned by the founders, and that the safeguards against government intrusion into our lives are under attack.

This book will make you angry, perhaps at the author, perhaps at the HOA board officer who lives down the street, and possibly at the tort lawyers who've turned gaming the legal system into a license to steal. In any event, you'll never look at your local Homeowners Association in quite the same way.
