    Among some of real estate dealings I have run into the HOA, and lately I am having problems finding developments without these agreements attached. Are you saddled to an HOA development? As for Republicans, they should be against them, but they are not. They talk gated community all the time, and you can bet all the right fat cats live in HOA communities for the protection.

    Home Owners Associations

    The HOAs are popping up all over on a national basis for sub-divisions, and some of it seems like a good thing, but the HOAs rules don't outweigh the bad they deliver, and should be held unconstitutional.

    HOAs are like a community club, and you pay monthly dues if you buy a home in an HOA controlled development. In return (depending on the club & dues) you get gated communities patrolled with private officers, a club house, swimming pools, parks, and in some cases roads & utilities. You get clean sanitized neighborhoods free of trash & litter, no old cars at the curb or jacked up in a driveway, no loose animals, and well maintained front yards ~ often mowed by the HOA. And your dues may run into several hundred a month depending on how far the HOA officers decide to take you.

    The HOA decides what colors you paint your house, what improvements you can make to your property, where your solar dish or solar panels, etc. go on the house, if at all. And they can also tell you cannot fly an American flag on your property, or any flag, or hold garage sales, and if you can park in your drive or into the garage.

    HOAs are their own government, and hold what appears to be communist control over the home owners who buy there. If you refuse to pay your dues, they have the right to sell your house out from under you. They cannot be forced into a State court room to be sued, which might be an HOA rule to sell your house if they chose.

    The more I looked into this, the more terrified I began getting, because as I say, this HOA is National wide and sucking home owners in daily to their communist regimes.

    I maybe a Socialist, but these people are way out there, have unconstitutional rules such as not flying Old Glory, and answer to no laws or civil liabilities. Truly, the HOA should be put out of business in America.

    :lol: I am always irritated by incompetence. Seems to me, that it should be reasonably easy to work out under what topic one should post. Although, perhaps a forum for "drivel that no one gives a shit about" would be helpful.

    We belong to a condo assn. I believe the fees are excessive, but we knew the deal going in. Representatives are voted in. If they are over reaching in their authority, they are voted out. Pretty simple concept.

    If you want to paint your house puke green and leave abandoned vehicles in your yard, move to the fucking woods.

    i find HOA developments to not be something i want for some of the reasons that are presumably listed in your post.

    that's why i didn't buy property encumbered by one. duh.

    life's all about choices, i guess. what a concept.

    LOL The irony is rich. You think HOA's that people voluntarily join should be ruled unconstitutional, yet feel that the federal government should be able to make your healthcare decisions. What a world.
