The town home community Westwood Village has 302 units that pay $230.00 monthly into an out of state account. The amenities we pay for do not exist, and the landscaping if old muddy covered sidewalks and prehistoric vegetation. They are supposed to maintain the roof's and housing exterior. A look shows this is not being done.
Roof underlayments are rotted, there is only spot repair. Following hurricane IKE in 2008 the HOA management company said notify your insurance companies. State Farm said your homeowner association is responsible for the roof(per bylaws/covenants that is correct) so claims were denied. Mine was fixed out of pocket.
Recently my management company said if I want repairs it will cost me an additional $1800.00 that I must pay their contractor of choice(I declined because their work is inferior, and besides I have paid the association since 1994 every month. This pissed me off!
Today I contracted with a company to replace my entire roof because it needs it. The High Sierra (Colorado management affiliate wants me to sign a document making me responsible for the two roof's adjacent to my home(corruption,strong arming,and totally in disregard for the law) but as we all know there are no laws to control them. I did not sign the document.
I am hoping in some way this will help put them out of business forever! These not for profit corporations are started by the developers, and only benefit them for tax purposes. Poor people are stuck with the greedy crooks who step in and take over, and senior citizens go hungry with no food on the table,and still have to pay the board every month. Whom don't know what they are doing.
