See restoring HOA Constitution Plan FAQ

The existing legal structure and state laws need to be dramatically altered to remove 40-plus years of problems. His long-term plan is to apply organizational development (OD) principles and methodology to correct this long standing affront to the US Constitution.

HOAs are not a club; they are legally binding agreements

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.

The overall intent and purpose of this webinar series is the education and reorientation of HOA members, especially the board of directors,  to long ignored issues of constitutional validity; issues that the public will not find in the propaganda from the Evil Empire. It is an introductory presentation and  required reading to better understand my proposed action plan set forth in A Plan Toward the Restructuring of the HOA Model of Governance, now on Amazon.com[1]

I continue to read that more and more homeowners are surprised why they lose in court, and before their legislature and before their board of directors.  I believe that a good part of these failures is because the issues at hand run very deep and are not the superficial day-to-day operational issues facing homeowners, not that they are not important.  The successful resolution can only come from standing behind the broadest levels of authority and exposing the many violations by our elected officials at all levels: the US Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence which constitute the organic laws of America.[2] 

Every argument not raising these democratic principles is a tacit recognition that serves to accept the validity and constitutionality of the HOA legal scheme and governing model, and of the laws in support of HOA-Land.  You lose from the start!

Notes


[1] Visit Amazon. (June 11, 2020).

[2] Organic law is the fundamental basis of a government. The Homes Association Handbook and UCIOA constitute, in my view, the organic law for HOA governed planned communities. In contrast, the U.S. Code defines the organic laws of the United States to include the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, the Northwest Ordinance, and the U.S. Constitution. (US Statutes At Large, 1789 –1875, Vol. 18, Part I, Revised Statutes (43rd Congress, 1st session), p. v and vi). The organic laws of HOA-Land are replacing the organic laws of the US as applied to local government.

Lost Constitution Webinar Series final session

Lost Constitution Webinar

Veritas para justitia

(truth for justice)

“We must make the injustice visible.”

Gandhi

Part 2 can be viewed here (20 minutes): https://vimeo.com/426813340; its script can be found here.

Part 3 continues examining the need to restructure the HOA model of governance, an introduction to the booklet/eBook,  A Plan Toward Restructuring the HOA Model of Governance, and 2 unanswered questions that seek justification for legislatures permitting  HOAs to function as  independent principalities.  

“Restructuring the HOA-Land Nation  requires a cultural change in in the way of life of members; and an appropriate change in attitude by  state legislatures, the people and the home buying public.”

“The authoritarian nature of HOA-Land is masked by a thorough indoctrination by CAI that presents a false picture that the real estate subdivision is governed under democratic principles, and inappropriately named a community simply because the members are allowed to vote as meaningless as it is.”

“Can private parties enter into contractual arrangements, using adhesion contracts and a constructive notice consent, that serve to regulate and control the people within a territory (an HOA), to circumvent the application of the Constitution?”

This final session will be produced in a closed, private ZOOM meeting and will be available online shortly.

Rebuttal to CAI’s defense to GEICO advertisement

My response to CAI’s statement below is simple: “Facts are the enemy of truth” (Man of La Mancha play, Cervantes). With all the gall CAI tells GEICO to seek the truth and read its Satisfaction Surveys and see how much HOAs are beloved. 

I am forwarding my Restoring the Lost Constitution To HOA-Land collection of publications and allow GEICO to make an informed decision.

In response to GEICO Insurance’s “HOA Cynthia Advises New Neighbors” commercial, Community Associations Institute (CAI) is deeply disappointed by the company’s inaccurate portrayal of homeowners associations and the 2.5 million volunteer board members elected to serve their communities.

GEICO’s attempt at comedy about a family moving into a community association is disrespectful and insulting to the millions of volunteers and hundreds of thousands of professionals who work tirelessly and proudly to build communities people are proud and privileged to call home. Community associations, also known as condominiums, homeowners associations, and housing cooperatives, are home to 73.5 million Americans.

Learning the facts about HOA living is so easy to do, a caveman could do it. According to the 2018 Homeowner Satisfaction Survey, independently conducted by Zogby Analytics for the Foundation for Community Association Research, residents in associations are overwhelmingly in support of their community association experience, manager and elected board members.

These are the facts and not the easy, stereotypical and condescending messages designed to get a cheap chuckle.

CAI invites GEICO to take 15 minutes to discuss the value of community associations and how they bring people together, strengthen neighborly bonds, and promote a sense of belonging—especially now.
