Happy New Year to all my readers! 2015 has been an eventful year for Association Governed Residential Communities.

Both mainstream and alternative media are now reporting all sorts of HOA, condo and cooperative association issues. And they are not just focusing on crazy rules.

We are starting to see more coverage of theft and embezzlement, construction defect disputes, problems resulting for poor maintenance and failure to set aside money in reserves, HOA foreclosure and hostile condo takeover schemes, and more.

It’s becoming more and more obvious that Owners’ Association problems are not “isolated incidents.” They occur every state and, indeed, are repeated all over the world.

Here’s hoping that, working together in 2016, we will see further momentum toward positive change for housing consumers.
