It's a tragic when a person, adult or child, suddenly disappears. Often, the case gets immediate attention from the public. But as investigations linger on
I t began with a need — the need to improve access to critical information for those who can help solve missing persons and unidentified decedent cases.
I wish I never bought a house where there is HOA
but in California, HOAs are everywhere. There is no escape. I installed a new Presidential Shake on my house when the roof leaked and developed mold. The HOA first said asphalt shingle roof is no longer allowed, then they said my roof doesn't look like wood shake, and threatened to sue me. I spent almost $5000 already on legal fees just to be dragged through a failed mediation. They lied to the mediator by saying most of the houses in the community are wood (the fact is 70% houses are asphalt shingle), then they said they really don't like the color (charcoal black is what my old roof was for the past 27 years, several of my neighbors have charcoal black asphalt shingle roofs today). Then they said it's my fault that my house cannot support the weight of tile and told me to take off my brand-new Presidential shake and put on synthetic plastic roof such as CeDur.
These directors are on a power trip and are out of control. By the way, my community is called Turtle Rock Broadmoor in Irvine, California. Everything else is great about this neighborhood except for this out-of-control HOA. It's a real shame that Courtroom and expensive legal battles are the only way to deal with the HOAs. There is nothing the City or State can do about these HOAs. It's like financial blackmailing because the HOAs have access to unlimited homeonwers' fees to fight with one poor homeowner.
