You can listen and/or download the talk show "On The Commons" taped on Saturday, October 25, 2008.
Residential America is anything but a peaceful, quiet, safe haven for American homeowners who live in one of over 300,000 mandatory membership homeowner associations nationwide. Empowering boards and HOA professionals to run the homes and lives of all who live within the boundaries of the association has created problems. How do individual homeowners protect their rights and their property from the abuses of those in power? Is the answer always to go to court? Are there other ways of returning some semblance of fairness to our neighborhoods?
Shu Bartholomew's guest "On The Commons" is David Kahne. David, a Houston, Texas attorney (AUTHOR OF THE AARP BILL OF HOMEOWNERS' RIGHTS) is one of the few attorneys who will represent homeowners in a case against their homeowner associations. David is experienced and knowledgeable about HOA law and understands perfectly well how lopsided and frustrating it can be to be in the crosshairs of the powers that be in HOAs.
Shu and her guest are talking a little about the Houston conference and also about two homeowners who fought the (HOA) law and won.
