Regarding the July 2 Point of View “Help for the HOA headache”: Kudos to David Sobotta. I could not agree more with his comments on HOAs and management companies.
I have been on two boards and have dealt with two incompetent and one corrupt management company. Neither experience was pleasant.
We had to threaten the company we fired with a lawsuit to get our records from it. The second time I purchased a townhome. I tried to contact the board and the management company, and it was a challenge to get through and get enough information to make a good decision.
It would be helpful if information about the board and the company could be more available to prospective buyers who try to investigate.
Never miss a local story.
There should be oversight of HOAs and management companies, but I hope it could be done without adding state regulations. Thank goodness I didn’t have to deal with developers as well. I am glad I finally found a home I could afford!
