  1. Thanks everyone, I appreciate all the advice.
  2. $25k a year (incoming HOA dues) but I think there is currently around $40k in the bank account. No full account has been done recently.
  3. We speculate she was hoping a homeowner wouldn't volunteer for the President position and she was hoping Property Management would be hired. She is making his work difficult in order to get him to resign so she can continue with her own agenda. Her excuses are: "There are piles of paper and I haven't organized them yet", "It will be difficult for me to carry them to to the meeting", "I need time to organize and sort them", "I don't think I can find what you need". We are aware the previous President was meticulous and the records were in good order, sorted in sub-folders and easy to sort through. We saw her pull info from her files 6 months ago and witnessed the organization she had put into place. It took her seconds to find whatever was requested.
  4. The basis is that many homeowners are out of compliance on ACC related issues. Our CCRs state that any homeowner can enforce CCRs on another owner and several have threatened lawsuits. He needs to determine who is out of compliance and why. The Secretary has all the ACC records. Since he is President, doesn't he have the right to access the records? Thanks.
  5. My husband recently was elected HOA President. He wants to review neighborhood records and has asked the former president for them (she used to keep all records at her home). She said the records were given to the Secretary of the Board and that's where they belong. He asked the Secretary and she refuses to give him any access to them. How should he demand the records? He was legally elected with more than half the neighborhood's votes. Thanks.
  6. Thank you adjusterjack. Have a good weekend.
  7. Hi, we have an upcoming HOA Board Meeting scheduled where my husband (recently got married so he's not on the title now) wants to run for an open Director position. Our Board President says he can run as long as she receives a copy of our Title (with his name on it) before the meeting. We have created a Quit Claim Deed to add him (per our Mortgage Company's instructions) and have notarized and filed it with the County. She says this isn't good enough and is insisting on a copy of the title. Legally, does the Quit Claim Deed satisfy the ownership requirement to run for an HOA Board position? Our CCRs say you must be an owner. Thanks.
  8. "No building lot may be further subdivided, nor may any easement or other interest therein, unless such subdivision complies with all applicable laws." is word for word accurate in the CC&Rs. The County said it would help to have our HOA Board agree to the subdivide in case there is anyone protesting at the hearing. So we asked and they came back requesting our surveyed subdivision plan ($2500 is the Engineering cost for that). We did provide a geographical layout showing the borders of the proposed split. They also wanted a completed ACC plan with a house and outbuildings and it seemed as if they treated it like an ACC request. They referred to this information being "complying with all applicable laws". We aren't up for spending thousands of dollars in case the request isn't supported by them and we have no idea what house plan we will pick. Subdividing is taking up to 6 months in Idaho now and the total cost will be $15k+. Thanks.
  9. My husband isn't on our house's title but I live in a community property state. Can he run for being on our HOA Board? Our CCRs say nothing about being on a title is a requirement. Thanks.
  10. I'm trying to interpret wording in our CCRs and was hoping for assistance, it says: No building lot may be further subdivided, nor may any easement or other interest therein, unless such subdivision complies with all applicable laws. Does this mean I can subdivide as long as I comply with my County's laws? This is part of the application process for the County based on what I've heard from them. Thanks.
  11. I wish that moving was an easy effort but it is significant. It's not financially feasible for my family in the immediate future. This is the fourth HOA I've bought a house in and what I've experienced here is not normal. Thanks to contributors on this forum, we've been able to change this from an HOA Board who were making weekly very questionable ATM withdrawals for years and then a Property Mgmt Company who stole from us, to removal of that Board and that Property Management company in the last 12 months. We still have a way to go making things better but it's come a long way. Plus we have helped the majority of the neighborhood who are good people and don't deserve what they ended up with. Thanks.
  12. Yes, agreed. Right now our HOA is sitting on a big reserve so they have the money to do so. Buying it fixes the issue of whose land it is and who should maintain it. Thanks.
  13. I'm posting here again to see if anyone else has feedback. The supposed "common areas" are private land. A group of homeowners has decided to not pay for this mowing since it's paying for mowing a neighbor's private property and the HOA isn't mowing ours. We feel that the HOA should buy that land and make it common area if they want to charge all homeowners to mow it. Any other thoughts on this?
