I am a resident and owner of a townhouse in Phoenix that is part of an HOA. Around 14 years ago the board members decided to fire the property management company. Since them, the board members have continued the same and have led to the downfall of the community. Amenities are not upkept or available to residents, the paint is peeling off of our buildings, the landscaping is rarely upkept, our security gates are non operational and architectural decor of some of the building is deteriorated. The board members have insisted on not allowing change, and spend nearly most of our budget on paying full time staff to upkeep the entire community while not actually being able to upkeep the community because the money is spent on salaries, healthcare and pensions. I’m at odds with the community, these people have been on the board for nearly two decades and convince the residents that it’s all due to funding issues. We spend $197 a month to cover the landscaping, and the upkeep of the exterior of the buildings and amenities. I don’t even want to invest in my home because i’m not sure the buildings will even be livable in the future. These maintenance staff are unqualified to do roofing, painting, and the major overhaul of plumbing.
I’m at a loss of what to do without serious capital to try and take legal action. I’m not sure what I can do, and it’s incredibly frustrating. Are there resources to help?
