As one pans the landscape of Homeowner Associations, it’s difficult finding a real reason to respect them. The latest story comes from reporter Ricado Gandara of the American Statesman. He recounts the tragedy of Tellmon and Jaquelyn in their 80’s, who’s condo was destroyed by a fire a year ago in Texas.
Still, they must keep up their payment their HOA fees, currently 561 dollars a month.
Condo owners in a large townhouse complex in Las Vegas could certainly find a reason to be sympatic. Their complex burned two years ago. Insurance companies promptly paid nearly one million dollars to the manager but work has never been to restore their neighborhod.
