The HOA issues for me have been non-stop and it doesn’t end. My recommendation would to never purchase in a condo or townhome community with an HOA. If the wrong people get in control of a board and you don’t have community support the community will turn into a complete disaster. My HOA board has failed to put money to reserves, failed to upkeep the amenities, failed to upkeep the maintenance of the buildings and leveraged their positions to put a board president on payroll as an office assistant. The board members have written letters to the community slandering me for trying to reach out to other residents to get members involved and take notice to the financial and maintenance issues and the failures of the board.
I filed a complaint with the department of real estate regarding a conflict of interest. The HOA attorney submits request to dismiss stating the department of real estate has no jurisdiction or precedence. I’m going to get slammed with paying for roofs and any other assessments because all of the money goes to full time staffing that cannot maintain the community or pay for what the HOA is responsible for. I’m sick to my stomach daily trying to deal with this. Word to to the wise. Don’t buy in a community where you depend on an HOA to upkeep your home and community. I’m sure there are great HOA’s out there, but after this catastrophe I wouldn’t recommend people taking the chance.
