On the Commons with Jan Bergemann Print

There is a rumor out there that buying a condo or a home in an HOA not only protects but also enhances property values. I still haven't figured just out how that supposedly works.  But proponents of the regime insist it is so. For the sake of argument I'll leave that alone for the time being.  But how on earth do they explain the fact that homeowners are responsible for the actions or inactions of the people either elected or hired and paid good money to "protect and enhance" your property?

 

Jan Bergemann joins us On The Commons.  Jan is a long time advocate and legislative activist for protecting the rights of home and condo owners in Florida.  Jan is the founder and President of the Florida based  Cyber Citizens for Justice .  He keeps a close watch on all the news related to housing, rentals, litigation involving homeowners and pending legislation that would affect the owners.  Many, if not all, of the stories end up on his web site.  One recent story involves a $7.5 Million award to a condo owner who seriously hurt himself when he fell into a hot tub that had been partially emptied, ill lit and left unprotected while the necessary repairs were being done.   We talk about the case and wonder just how much it will cost the owners in the condominium to cover any shortfall in the event that the insurance isn't adequate to cover the entire $7.5 Million?  How does the assertion that a condo protects and enhances property values work in a situation like this?  . . .  Listen to Jan Bergmann
