CCHAL, a homeowners rights group in California as been d0ing a superhuman job on behalf of homeowners. Let me tip you to their latest escapade. Working with the Nevada Attorney General and the Nevada Real Estate Commission, they’re dragging three HOA board directors and their associations into Small Claims Court in Nevada!
Among the charges, failing to hold association elections, staying in office beyond the HOA’s term limits, imposing arbitrary and capricious rules to keep homeowners from voting, failing to keep financial records or have them reviewed by a CPA, using the HOA credit card to enrich themselves, diverting association funds for their own use, failing to maintain corporate reserves, failing to keep corporate minutes, retaliating against homeowners who file complaints of any of the above officers, interfering with the current corruption investigation into Nevada’s HOAs.
CCHAL was the Knight in Shining Armor who fought to allow Small Claims Court to conduct such hearings in California. Become a paying member and they’ll let you see all their court files and many other items of interest to beleagured homeowners.
