    I am glad in this case that he might have some legal recourse and be able to get his house back. What a nightmare.

    But can you imagine moving back in and having to see the person who bought up your house (the first person) who was on the HOA? ugh

    HOAs are the reason why we bought our house in Denton (20 mi. North of Dallas). We still have a self appointed anonymous leader that sends computer printout nasty letters to us and several of our neighbors for every little thing. We haven't figured out who it is yet, but I foresee having some fun if we ever do find out who this clown is.

    Obviously, the secret enforcer wouldn't have any home foreclosure powers. And once discovered, would be exiled from the neighborhood. I hope they understand that this could happen to them.

    Re: Not So Neighborly Associations Foreclosing On Homes

    I cannot comprehend how an organization can do that. How can they confiscate what isn't theirs, never was theirs, and something they have no stake in. Someone owes $1000 and the law actually says that because they owe someone $1000 they must lose their $300,000 home? Why in the **** isn't someone doing something to prevent this kind of ****ing nonsense? That is absolutely insane.

    That said, I'd never, EVER buy a home where I was required to be in an HOA. I was a roomate with someone who was RENTING a home in an HOA area. She had two ****ing pre-school kids and wasn't allowed to have a single toy on the porch or in the yard. Not a single one. Nothing. If she wanted to put a ****ing PLANT on the porch she had to get permission. There is no way in ****ing hell I would actually PAY an organization to have that kind of asinine control over every little thing that I do.

    Sorry, I didn't see that Zyphlin properly chastized you already.

    This is a great example of exactly why I'll never live somewhere with an HOA.

    HOA foreclosed on Frisco home of soldier while he was in Iraq

    A soldier serving in Iraq lost his Frisco home to foreclosure over late homeowners association dues, renewing a debate over the power of HOAs in Texas.

    The case, which has boiled over to involve a federal judge, a publicist and death threats, began when Michael and May Clauer lost their $315,000 home to foreclosure in May 2008 after falling behind on their association dues.

    The Heritage Lakes Homeowners Association was initially owed $977.55 and sent multiple notices by certified mail demanding payment. All went unanswered, said David Margulies, spokesman for the association and its management company, Select Management.

    These things sound like they don't hold up to the law.

    I'm sure you can fight the sales contract as invalid.
    There has got to be some legal provisions that account for things like this.
    The guy who foreclosed on them has got to be a gigantic asshole.
