Problems with real estate transactions must be addressed

Purchasing real estate is a big expense. It is imperative that you have everything in order when you make this purchase.

Homeowners' association rules shouldn't trump laws

The laws that govern a homeowners' association are often very limiting for the individuals who spent good money on their property. These HOAs have to do what they feel is best for all members of the association, but there are times when this can seriously limit the freedoms that each homeowner should have. We recently discussed the case of the veteran who was taking the HOA to court over his right to fly the American flag. This is a horrible situation for a person who served in the military to be placed in.
