A measly $338.91.
That's how much Sherman McCray owed his homeowner association when the board of directors foreclosed on his Clermont house.
Oh, no. Between 2010 when McCray failed to pay a homeowners assessment and that final hearing, the all-powerful homeowner association in the Vistas subdivision had levied late fees, costs and interest, and it had busied itself running up absurd lawyer bills by sending threatening letters at every turn.
Total cost now: $4,272.24.
The commentary describes this as yet another sickening tale of diabolical, petty homeowner associations in South Florida and asks why the HOA would exercise a punitive option against an elderly disabled veteran obviously overwhelmed by health troubles and without a thorough understanding of the rules. McCray clearly needs an advocate to help him navigate the dangerous legal minefield that's Privatopia.
