Well, I have now tried almost everything in the book.

First I tried lawyers, and my first lawyer told me that the leaking walls and roof is 'flooding' and not covered under the HOAs insurance and them told me he had no more interest in assisting me and charged me 800$.

Second, Lawyer is 'reviewing' it possibilities.. and woudl get back to me... it has been 3 weeks.

It seems that every lawyer I talk to either are not interested, or only support the HOAs and not unit owners.

There seems to be some kind of 'red herring' for HOA cases and North Carolina.

It also seems now that the BOD bought a foreclosed townhome, fixed it up with the maintaince money and will be allowing a police officer to live there for free. But they dont have any money to fix the other units.

We have now been 'specicial assessed' for 900$ because all the homes need to be painted and it was considered 'extrodinary' repair so a vote was not needed in the minds of the BoD. Letters were sent out, and they will foreclose homes if they are not paid.

I got a home inspector to come out and and a contracter to quote repairs, when they were done there was $41000 in damages on a home that is valued for $62000. Entire siding is rotten and falling off and the deck has been 'fixed' so many times that it is out of code.

I feel like there has to be a simple was to get this done but with the management company buying up homes and now they have voting rights, it seems almost like a hostile takeover.

Any advise would be apprectiaed.

I have lived in two communities in North Mecklenburg and both communities utilized Abbott. Based on my experience, I would not recommend them to any HOA. They manipulate their agreement with the HOA in order to generate additional fees from residents. For example, they charge homeowners $25 for sending a letter addressing issues. In general, their employees are rude; and their management team is not connected with the communities they serve. Their motto is “Bringing Community to Your Neighborhood". That slogan is not even close. At best they will help create negative feelings towards your HOA.
