Over 60 million Americans live in a property governed by some type of H.O.A. corporation. These organizations collect $65 billion (with a b) from home owners every year, with very little accountability or oversight. While the industry's interests are well organized and well represented in our state legislatures, the individual home owners themselves have no voice and are relatively powerless. firstname.lastname@example.org is an e-mail forum for home owners and home owner rights activists to discuss the issues and policies regarding mandatory membership H.O.A. corporations.
