The president of the HOA is on video claiming his desire to push through a fine/foreclosure scheme to try and get rid of "people that can't afford to live here anyway." He thinks he can enact new rules by "clarifying" the deed restrictions without having a vote. Um, no.
My question is, is there anything illegal about his statement that he is actively trying to create problems for homeowners so he can foreclose on the homes when they can't afford the fines or the legal defense? Or, is this more a court of public opinion would crucify him, but it's not illegal kind of thing?
So, my HOA board has laid a giant turd sandwich here. We're about 99% sure that if we want to we could get the HOA dissolved of members since they screwed up the paperwork when they renewed. So we're not completely worried, we've had lawyers check into it and it's fairly cut and dry in FL that our HOA could be nuked from orbit, and we might very well do that to protect people in the neighborhood from evil schemes like this.
We're a 35 year old neighborhood and with that comes problems with people not keeping up their homes, and some not able to since they are elderly or they werehit hard by the recession. Since this turd burglar started poking the bear, neighbors have come out of the woodwork and offered to help each other for the first time in a long time.
Oh yeah and the obligatory, HOA's suck. Never again will I buy a house that has any sort of strong HOA.
