Can a landlord charge on a per-person basis? (Sun, 20 Apr 2014)
Question: I am a landlord who owns and manages a couple of four-plexes. I have always paid for all the utilities — garbage pickup, electricity and water — for my tenants. However, I started to notice recently that the utility bills were getting very expensive at my properties. Some tenants seem to be running the heat even when the temperature is in the high 60s, while others seem to be using a lot of water. Because the utility costs are so high, I am thinking of increasing the rent on my apartments by $80 per person to help defray these costs. My wife, however, is concerned that we might get in trouble under the Fair Housing laws for doing this. Are we allowed to institute such a policy?

Homeowner accounts are not the board's slush fund (Sun, 20 Apr 2014)
When unscrupulous board directors conspire to collect more money for any reason other than for an earmarked project, that could be deemed a fraud. Question: Our homeowner association's president explained to our board how the budget process actually works. She said: "You start by working out how much you can get out of the homeowners, then you go to the Budget and Reserve Study to figure out how to get that result. The reserve study company will work with us by doing a couple of go-arounds to get us to the result we want." Am I being naive to think the job of a reserve study company is to come up with realistic numbers, instead of numbers that fit the board's agenda?

Renewal of federal tax breaks for homeowners facing bumpy road (Sun, 13 Apr 2014)
Homeowner benefits such as mortgage debt forgiveness may not stand up to a planned rigorous evaluation by Rep. Dave Camp, the House's most influential tax legislator. WASHINGTON — Renewal of important expired federal tax benefits for homeowners took a major step forward recently, but the route to final congressional approval is beginning to look longer — and potentially bumpier — than previously expected.

Retiree needs help paying homeowner association assessment (Sun, 13 Apr 2014)
A condo owner who will have difficulty paying an HOA assessment is advised to submit a written request to meet with the board to discuss a payment plan for that potential debt. Question: Thinking this would be cost-effective housing, I bought a condo in the Riverside County area. Since then I've asked the board to repair my unit's balcony railing numerous times to no avail. Six years later, I received a notification that the balconies on all 96 units must be repaired, costing each owner more than $3,000. I have no say in the way things are done around here. This homeowner association has wasted thousands of dollars on repeated cosmetic primping like painting, parking lot slurry seal, landscape and more. The board's priorities differ from mine.
