Bill Davis

What is an HOA?  The term and the concept seem to be shrouded in misunderstandings, misinformation and deliberate misnomers.  If there is so much confusion about what it is, can we all get on the same page to talk about a common concern and actually understand each other?  
Joining us  On The Commons  this week is  Bill Davis .  Bill, a Texas attorney who, after years of being caught up in the quagmires of controlled living, is starting to take on HOA cases  – representing the homeowners.  That is a very good thing for Texas owners.  Join us as we talk about HOAs in general, what they are and what they are not.  We also talk about the problems in general and some of the misinformation that is rampant in the world of residential corporate Amerika.  

Sen. Mike Schneider

After 5 years of investigating the corruption in Las Vegas homeowner associations, the FBI has turned over 3.1 million pages of documentation, 198 audio files, 25 videos and 1,100 photographs into evidence. At least 26 people have been indicted on a number of charges, four prominent people involved with the law firms and HOAs in question have allegedly committed suicide, reports of leaks from the US Attorney’s office in Las Vegas prompted the FBI fraud division to step in and take over, allegations of mob connections have surfaced recently.  

I suppose this is just another “isolated incident” in a housing scam that allegedly is designed to protect property values. 

Joining us  On The Commons  this week is  Senator Mike Schneider.   Senator Schneider, from Las Vegas, Nevada was aware of  the problems with and in  HOAs way before the Feds arrived to clean things up.   Over the years he has sponsored legislation to try to regulate some of the problems but the forces of evil proved to be immune.  We’ll get a better understanding of how and why so many homeowners in associations were subjected to such a massive fraudulent scheme.
