HOAs are not a club. They are legally binding adhesion agreements in favor of the HOA government, the BOD, and seriously detrimental to homeowner property interests and member fundamental rights. Members are at risk because the private “contractual” CC&Rs have been held superior to the US Constitution by the courts. The facts are there in the public records and state HOA statutes known as “Acts.”
It is in the best interest of the members not to obediently agree to all the BOD says they should, but to get educated and discover the truth for themselves. If they can handle the truth. Discover for yourselves.
My seminal book, The HOA-Land Nation Within America describes the collection of HOAs throughout America as “HOA-Land.” It identifies HOA-Land as a nation within America based on its culture, beliefs, values, and commonality of contractual CC&Rs acting as its constitution.
My sequel to HOA-Land Nation, A Plan Toward Restructuring the HOA Model of Governance, another seminal work, presents the case for the restructuring of the HOA model of governance. It seeks to bring the private government HOA into compliance with and subject to the Constitution as required of all local governments.
