An increasing number of rent-controlled units are being converted to condos or simply flattened, leaving a dwindling supply and fewer affordable options for residents. Arie Shashou remembers simple pleasures from the decades spent in his Westside home: helping neighbors with small tasks; the daily chats with the former manager of the complex; the paintings that line the walls of his one-bedroom.

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.

Fannie and Freddie's steep fees hurting home buyers, critics say (Sun, 06 Apr 2014)
These fees are partially responsible for declines in home purchases in recent months, especially among moderate-income, first-time and minority buyers, critics say. WASHINGTON — When you're raking in tens of billions of dollars in profits by helping credit-elite borrowers buy homes, couldn't you lighten up on fees a little for everyday folks who'd also like to buy?

Homeowner association manager is accused of fabricating evidence (Sun, 06 Apr 2014)
An owner asks how to prevail in small-claims court against an association manager who presents evidence that is irrelevant to the case or even fabricated. Question: Our manager refuses owner requests for documents, causing our association to be sued several times a year. Each time she comes to court as a defendant, she brings her so-called evidence and answers, "Your honor, see Exhibit X." She overloads on exhibits, most of which are contrived for the purpose of that hearing. Her main strategy includes putting on big exhibit head notes supposedly explaining what each exhibit consists of, but when the exhibits are scrutinized and read, they have little or nothing to do with what is head-noted. The court accepts the exhibits based on the head notes. For example, she head-noted "County-issued permit," but in actuality it was only an application for the permit that was never filed. In our cases, judges aren't reading the exhibits, just the head notes. If judges bothered to read the exhibits, they would see the exhibits were irrelevant to the case and/or suspiciously fabricated for the purpose of that hearing. The judges inevitably rule for the manager, as homeowner association representative, and against the plaintiff-homeowners. She brags how she successfully pulls off this scam in court. She credits her former management company boss, who showed her how to do this. How do we get judges to read beyond her exhibit head notes? How can owners do better in small-claims actions?

Homeowner association has duty to protect records and documents (Sun, 30 Mar 2014)
Handing over the association's documents and records, including titleholder information and accounts, to a management company creates a security issue. Question: I'm the president of our homeowner association mainly because no one else wants the job. We live in a prestigious area of Los Angeles and have fewer than 30 units. Because nobody wants to be on our board we hired a management company. They're not a California company. Their head office is out of state, and we've never seen or been to their California place of business and do not know where it is or that they even have a California office. A management representative came and picked up our files and documents, including owners' personal information and accounts, and gave us their P.O. box number. All we have to do is pay them. So far there have been no complaints until an owner asked the board where our files were. Do we have to give the owner the management company's physical address?
