HOA advocates must deal with reality for success

In a study I did in 2009 on Bar complaints in total, using its reports, only 15% of the complaints submitted 2005 –2008 resulted either in a Bar sanction, or a Supreme Court finding of a violation of law – 9% for the SC and 6% for the Bar. Of all the cases involving the HOA attorneys, I am aware of only 2 cases that resulted in “guilty” findings – one brought by a court appointed Receiver and one by a judge.

The State Bar’s real name is, The Benevolent and Protective Order of Attorneys (BPOA).

Complaints filed against an attorney must follow the same process as in civil court: cite the laws and Rules of Conduct broken, and supply concrete evidence of wrongdoing.

In the past I posted copies of the Arizona AG’s response to requests for help, as well as ADRE’s “not my job” response.  Both agencies said, “Go tell it to the Legislature.”

  1. What about HOA board members who approve of expensive, overpriced items such as monuments, architect paint palettes, upgraded park lighting and a slew of other items. Maybe the providers overcharge, and money is kicked back under the table to the board. This is white collar corruption. We pay $700 a year, and the board does not enforce vehicle violations in our neighborhood, as stated in the CC&R’s. Instead, they choose to spend frivolously – but under a cloud of suspicion.
    Also, they have not posted board election results for about 5 years. Election losers mysteriously win appointments to the board to fill vacancies. Also relatives serve on the board.
    The hoi polloi of the development – about 20% of the homes – pay the bills and receive no representation on the board while our neighborhood home values are destroyed by big trucks and business operations from people who gleefully violate the CC&R’s. All of these things I have mentioned need to be investigated.
