Texas soldier gets home back after foreclosure | texas, dallas, foreclosure - Online Extras - Brownsville HeraldDALLAS (AP) — The Frisco soldier and his family who lost their home to foreclosure while he was serving in Iraq will get the house back.
Army National Guard Capt. Michael Clauer and his wife, May, lost their $315,000 southwest Frisco home in May 2008 after falling behind on Heritage Lakes Homeowners Association dues.
The Clauers sued the association and subsequent buyers in federal court. A court-ordered settlement conference led to an agreement this week that gives the house back to the Clauers.
A gag order prevents those involved from sharing details.
Gag order? The episode is enough to make anybody gag. And the Texas state legislature is stirring itself into possible action, so stay tuned. But the state-by-state struggle to get simple protections for owners against their HOAs just goes on and on.
