Fifty-three percent of homeowners in North Carolina live in what is known as "homeowner association" with certain By Laws they have to abide by when they purchase a home. Each homeowner pays monthly dues usually from $100.00 to $300.00 a month for the upkeep of our properties. What is now occuring throughout the nation and in North Carolina is much abuse towards good homeowners by uneducated newly elected board members over such associations who are negligent to do their jobs and pick on any requesting homeowner. The board would not submit the financials to me. When I finally got them, I discovered the loss of thousands. I went to our District Attorney and he would not do anything. I went to our Attorney General and his office said he does not cover homeowner asassociation problems. I live on disablity. My 80 year old parents and I were hit with a slander lawsuit for my complaints as to why I could not get a copy of the non profit corporate financials. The board hid behind what they sued us for saying I "harrassed" them with emails of complaint. Many homeowners who owe only $70.00 in HOA dues are foreclosed on. The HOA board charged me $85,000.00 in this bogus lawsuit with only a one week's notice to court against my $1,033.00 a month disability. Please sign a Petition to stop this abuse and form new enforcement laws for board members with penalites and a property manager's licensing bill.
