About this product
- DescriptionThis is a critical examination of the modern Homeowners Association movement, and how it has robbed 62 million Americans of their civil rights as outlined in the U.S. Constitution. Home-owners often move into these planned communities and unwittingly sign documents that control their behaviour in a multitude of ways. Failing to abide by these 'personality and private behaviour' controls has cost thousands of home-owners their homes, their life savings and their peace of mind. While HOAs were theoretically created to protect property values, there is incredible incentive for HOA board officers to go rogue and unnecessarily abuse fellow home-owners. When that happens, neighbourhoods are torn apart, property values plummet and lives are ruined. Ather national scandal is the amount of financial corruption of HOA board members. In one American city, federal indictments of dozens of well-kwn public figures show what happens when HOAs go out of control.
