This is volume 1 of a 2 part series on how to protect your protery rights in a Condominium, HOA, or Gated Community. Is it worth it to fight for your property rights? Sometimes yes, and sometimes emphatically NO. The first in a series (updated every year to reflect changes in both state and federal law-2018) will answer your most baisic questions and tell you exactly what you can do that will work, and what you shouldn't do because it probably won't.
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 their 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.
