A suggested read with this introduction:
The web book you should have read before you bought in a Common Interest Development.
The purpose of this website is to awaken a sleeping public to a plague that is threatening to destroy the American dream of homeownership and undermine the common democratic principals so many have fought to preserve for over 200 years. This menace is the corporate, private government known as the Homeowners Association. As briefly as possible, I will tell you how this industry developed, how it works, and who is profiting from the scam. I’ve presented numerous examples of this world gone mad and offered a few suggestions as to how you might help to restore sanity to your neighborhood.
