Dissolve HOA's Nationwide.

Messages Sent So Far
HOA's have long been taking advantage of the American people and their dream to own a home and make it their own to raise their families. HOA's have become dictators telling people when they can have friends over and what can be kept on their property. In these times where home sales are plummeting, homeowners are trying to do things to increase interest in their homes and an HOA is a turn off to new homebuyers. You may ask why? Because of all the rules. Such as you cannot keep your $250k motorhome or $35k boat in your own driveway. You have to put up a storage that has the same coloring as your home. People that buy expensive homes that are in an HOA are not keeping trash or broken down items in their yards. HOA's are just another way for more control over free Americans and they need to be dissolved.

I am a hard working, 49 year old single male. I have a career job as a Water Treatment Plant Operator with the largest privately owned public utility in the US. I work rotating shifts, a lot of over-time, and pay all my bills on time. My credit is excellent, but because I have a single income, I cannot spend as much as I would like to on a house. With that said, looking at houses is becoming very frustrating. I see decent looking houses not far from me, but because of the outrageous HOA fees added on to the principal, taxes, etc. I cannot afford $1500 monthly mortgage payments! (unless I decide to stop eating, driving a car, and quit the gym) Someone told me the whole idea of the HOA was to keep the riff-raff out. Well I disagree, this can work either way. I have driven past $1M houses, that have junked up yards, and I know some of these houses, that the insides are just as bad! But these fees also keep good, clean-cut, hardworking people like me from moving into a nice, safe neighborhood. So now I have to move into a ghetto and try to sleep at night hoping no one steals my car?! I understand the HOA fees do (or do not) cover a multitude of things that go with the house, but at the same time, perhaps if not outlawed, then at least there can be a cap. I mean it doesn't cost must to mow lawns and snow plow driveways, except for possibly ramped up fees from landscape contractors. I just cannot see how some of these place can charge $500, $700 a month, and MULTIPLY that by the entire community! It's just really ashamed with what has become of this country, that a person cannot afford to live in the county where he grew up his entire life. Oh yeah, and then there are the silly rules that go with the outrageous fees :(

There are 5 homes in our HOA. The homeowners of the other 4 homes are related. They use the HOA to harass us and to extort money from us. They also stalk us via many forms of video surveillance and spread viscous rumors and lies about us in the small community so that we have to endure severe community harassment. All because we moved in from out of state due to a change of employment and purchased a home the neighbors in the HOA were going to buy together and then flip for a profit. Because we made an offer on the house (became a short sale) the house didn't go into foreclosure as the neighbors anticipated. They have wealth and influence in the community with real estate, law enforcement, post office, etc. (they have many community contacts being native to the town). We have tried to sell our house and I strongly believe they have conspired with the Real Estate Community in this state to prevent us from selling this house where we are surrounded by people causing us harm) The other homeowners in the "HOA," led by the President of the HOA who was also the land developer, have brought to life an HOA which was non -existent when we bought the house (only on paper as an HOA to "ensure that homeowners kept their properties decent -- although the house we bought looked and smelled like a deserted junk yard on the inside and out when we bought the property). The story we were told by the other homeowners was that the house we bought was rented out and turned into a animal rescue that housed over 22 dogs. The house was abandoned and very abused when we purchased it (where was the HOA when a "tenant had 22 dogs in the house and they knew nothing about it yet are aware of our every move). They have done some very evil things to us to where I am afraid to leave my home as it requires driving down a private community road on which I was already attacked and harassed several times. The behavior is nothing less than evil and now that they have us here, they are enjoying the power of destroying my life and conspiring with many others to do the same. This criminal behavior violates both state and federal law yet I can get no relief from the torment of others based on the malicious lies being spread about me. I am a disabled veteran and also a federal civil service employee who recently lost my job due to the extreme torment and harassment (psychological injury). The information I have shared here is only the tip of the iceberg on what I have been subjected to as a law-abiding citizen and veteran. I have no funds to financially defend myself, but I do have proof of my allegations if anyone has the funds and would consider helping we initiate an investigation and file charges against these relentless criminals.
