In Brunswick County, N.C., at least two master-planned developments run by HOAs have become towns. Communities with HOAs have many reasons to choose to incorporate, including land use, demographics, taxation, political, and utility and community services.
North Beach Water District in Washington is under investigation by the Environmental Protection Agency over alleged improper handling of an HOA property's cement pipes that contained asbestos. The HOA has been issued fines of $27,000 in violation of workplace safety regulations since it owns the water system.
A Chicago condo association is being sued for more than $350,000 by a developer for interfering with the building of a sports bar and restaurant in the shared property. The suit alleges that the association is not honoring an easement contract.
The trial of an Indiana town manager who removed political signs placed by an HOA political action committee to oppose him has no resolution in sight. The manager said he wants to accept a deal by prosecutors that includes a restitution payment to the HOA, but the judge has not yet decided to reject or approve the deal.
