If you are a condominium owner or are anticipating buying a condo, you need to be aware of the reality of Homeowner Associations, often the scene of conflict and graft. Frequently unregulated, these associations are primarily composed of unpaid volunteers who live in the complex or community and are responsible for the management, operation, and financial well-being of the property. Unsuspecting buyers, dazzled by the purchase of their new home or property, often overlook this vital aspect of their acquisition. Managed correctly, however, a HOA can significantly add financial value and can enhance the aesthetics and ambiance of a place. Noted private investigator, Olivia Robinson, will offer her experiences and practical advice for current or prospective condo owners.
