There is something missing in the term ‘owners association’. It is cold and clinical. It says nothing of proximity – of the micro-communities that are apartment blocks and townhouse complexes.
Belonging to an association connotes images of going to a meeting and coming home somewhat detached and resigning or not renewing membership if the wrong types seize control.
There is no such option in a group for the management of co-owned facilities in an apartment block or townhouse complex. So when the village idiot takes control of the apartment village in which you live, the only way out is to sell up and be gone. This is not an association, its much more complicated than that, it’s a community.
