The simplest things in life can end up being the most complicated Add a healthy dose of stress to the mix and the most basic things quickly become overwhelming. Sadly if you live in a mandatory membership residential association, making everything more difficult and ridiculous seems to be part of their reason for being.
Shelly Marshall joins me On The Commons this week. Shelly is a dynamic owner and advocate, a keynote speaker and an author. Her first HOA book is called HOA Warrior. She has followed that with HOA Warrior II, her second book. Her book is full of great advice for both homeowners and board members, incredible stories, interesting facts and lots of forms to help the homeowners by pass the absurd run around, designed to frustrate and further inflame the situation. Requesting association documents a homeowner is entitled to often denied and sometimes gets down to the wrong wording, the wrong form and the wrong color of ink. We talk to Shelly about what is happening, discuss some of the emails she receives from her readers and talk about legislation designed to regulate HOAs. You’ll want to hear the show and you’ll want to read her latest book, HOA Warrior II. Visit her website for more information of how and where you can get her book.
