History can show us where we came from and how we got here. History is just as valuable when looking at the evolution of residential associations. While design and structure have played significant roles in their growth, so have enabling legislation and lack of choice. But what about the future? Wouldn’t history be a good tool to help us prevent the same mistakes that have led to the creation of some of the most harmful housing choices? If we look through our crystal balls what do we see? What is in store for American homeowners? Will sanity, respect and dignity make a comeback or have property owners lost the right to sovereignty over their own homes?
Bill Davis joins us On The Commons. Bill, a Texas attorney and frequent guest on the show, represents homeowners. Along the way he has encountered some of the most interesting, weird and bizarre situations associated with the wacky world of controlled living. Many of his cases and stories highlight the incredible absurdity of this form of housing. In addition to taking on clients, he is a frequent commentator on many public forums, discussing all things related to HOAs. He shares some thoughts about the new White Paper put out by CAI. We’ll find out if they are looking through the same crystal ball that Bill consulted.
