This information on the houses, when we brought them up at the last board meeting the president of the BOD had no knowledge. The community manager whispered loudly Moonstream. We have since found out that property was been sold in June 2009. The BOD refuses to tell us where THE MONEY IS! LET ALONE ADMIT THAT IT WAS IN THEIR POSSESSION.

In turn, the HOA should let homeowners know what is going on in terms of crimes related to personal property and safety so that we are a little more observant and a little less complacent (via website). What good is it to collect this type information from BCSD if you are not going to share it? As far as property values being maintained...guess what...crime has a lot more to do with it than landscaping. We need security to deter/prevent crime that is happening around us now...not down the road...end of story.
Point well made. Thank you

And, do you see ANY line items in the budget related to this. Insurance, property manager, rental income, property tax, maintenance, escrow balance, mortgage...

I don't.

Has anyone called any of the local media to see if they would be interested in doing a story and attending a BOD meeting? Not necessarily the troubleshooters but just a media story to highlight the good, bad, and ugly of HOA's.

Default The media was brought up on the 9/17 meeting

the media was mentioned by several people on 9/17/2009. I was one of the people who said i would call channel 4, but my husband decided that in all fairness to the bod. The bod needs to be allowed to respond first.

I was thinking of the media as well. I e-mailed all three of them one time when I had an issue with SAWS and one responded and took care of the case. I'm thinking this one would be MUCH more popular since it appears to have a lot of shadying business practices. If the meeting tonight does not go well, I think several people should contact them. I will and would recommend others do as well. Seeing several people concerned with this situation should get them involved.
I am not sure if I will be able to make this meeting today. I was able to get a same-day doctors appointment for later this afternoon and cannot pass it up. No matter what, I will definitely be there in spirit. I think it should be pretty exciting.

Moderator cut: orphaned

Irregardless of Moderator cut: orphaned reference to above quote, I think most, if not all, folks here would prefer a more civilized discussion.

I think it's very likely that these houses were siezed due to failure to pay assessments. I can't look at it from the computer that I'm on but a search of Bexar County, Texas - County Clerk will probably shed some more light on the question.

Phew - thank you bringing civility back to the conversation! I read in the Parade section of the newspaper yesterday (www.Parade.com) an interesting article on page 20 . "Online Comments Spark Lawsuits" "Could you be sued for what you write on the Internet? Good reading; with technology advancing and being a society of instant gratification - It seems now they have "digital rights" and Electronic Frontier Foundations to govern this fast growing teckie world......

Correct me if I'm wrong, but an HOA can not seize a property. Now, they can initiate a lean against the house that could lead to a forced sale or foreclosure. Next, the HOA would have to bid and win on the foreclosed property. Then the HOA would own the property.
