Is it worth it to fight for your property rights? The first in a series, this first volume answers those questions.
Most people don't realize the broad sweeping powers that a board of directors have over your life when you buy a home in an association or a condominium. In fact, you won't know it until you are in crisis. But Shelly Marshall, owner/advocate, has paved a path for you. This book leads the homeowner step by step in how to use everything at their disposal in order to take on and effect change with an Association Board of Directors. Taken from her personal experience with an out of control board, where the homeowners banded together and won their rights back, you can learn from her personal stories and the many stories of other homeowners who take on the good fight. Don't let your board or their attorneys intimidate you.
Protect your home and protect your rights. The book contains active links for the sources and additional information. Don't let an Association run over you, but after you for your expertise! This book lays the very basic foundation for the beginner so you don't have to reinvent the wheel.
Valuable guidelines continue in HOA Warrior II, Responding to Pets, Paint & Parking in your Associaiton. This first book is where you begin-- then forms, letters, and samples are presented in Volume II along with advice for when you run for the board. These books offer hope and insight into the issues that baffle homeowners when they wake up one day and realize they don't actually own their home in an associaiton. Take heart, as people wake up, unite, and get serious about taking back our rights, we get stronger. You will too.
Meet the Author
Shelly Marshall didn't want to learn HOA law, how to fight a board of directors, or how not to make friends in your HOA--but she did. Actually she is a best selling author of self-help recovery books for addicts and alcoholics. Among her titles is the classic "Day By Day", "Young, Sober, & Free" and the more recent "Pocket Sponsor." You would think that working with addictions would be the tough job, but Ms Marshall says, Working with addicts is a calk walk compared with going up against a board of directors."
Her association, which was a David and Goliath type of battle, was eventually won. Shelly and 225 of her closet neighbors won the battle. She is now considered an advocate for homeowners rights and is working to help abolish as many associations as possible.
