That was a completely unsatisfactory solution! In a hearing on HOA reform bills in this past session, a legislator stated that 94% of all new homes was in an HOA. A completely unsound solution not based on the facts.
Furthermore, it rewards the guilty parties. The government was not called upon to do something to stop this disgraceful condition in what the government continues to tout as “the next best thing to Mom’s apple pie.” There was no call for the immediate adoption of a consumer advisory like a Truth in HOAs Disclosure Agreement. There was no call for ADRE, the real estate department, to enforce its rule on material disclosure, R4-28-1101. There was no call for the Legislature to enforce HOA laws and to hold the HOA accountable under the laws, so homeowners can feel that there was someone on their side. That there was a viable method to ease the pain. KPHO offered no such call except to “move out.”
KPHO’s internet survey, “Question of the Day,” asking whether the Syndrome does really exist has received, after 24 hours, a steady 67% YES replies from respondents. Perhaps this will be an awakening call that the legitimate grievances of homeowner rights advocates over the years are valid! And the only reply from the national pro-HOA trade lobbying group, CAI was a faint, “But, it’s not officially recognized.” Not even a word that something has to be done to make its claims of happiness and harmony a reality. Not a word!
