    Lynda;

    There are some situations that need to be clarified. There are two types of Anthem Cards Issued. One is for a property owner, and a second is for a renter or someone who is living in a home owned by someone who is not.

    Some past Board member’s lied and claimed I was a property owner and then took money from me. They also denied me access to use the exercise equipment that I paid to use. That is a violation of a seniors rights and the State of Nevada knows it.

    Can the community manager advise the association to use the same lawyer they use?

    That Question was asked and answered by the State of Nevada on February 01, 2013

     

    Very strange (to say the least) that no one mentions that the manager’s lawyer is in violation of NAC 116A.345  (5) because he is “double dipping” and receiving a salary from the manager AND the Association.

    Were (or Are) you aware that two members of our past BOD illegally changed the quantity of stucco needing paint in order to lower an IRS Tax fine of 1.3 million dollars? Are you aware of the past IRS tax problems and what occurred in 2008?

    Ron Johnson has recently published his opinion of the Recall Effort and he is against it. At the same time he publishes his own scathing opinion of Our General Managers (and the Attorneys the Residents pay for) actions and HE REPORTS A THREAT MADE AGAINST HIM BY OUR ESTEEMED ASSOCIATION. Here is what he reported regarding the ethics of some of our past Board Members and our new manager.


    On a different and more personal matter, affecting me and members who would like to believe that the Board always acts honestly and ethically, I maintain that the current Board has grossly abused their power in refusing to permit members to access certain records which legally should be made available to any member under existing law but which are being hidden from view by outright denial under the guise of attorney-client privilege in order to avoid embarrassment, at the least, an accusation of malfeasance, or potential criminal conduct, at worst.

    In November 2016, I participated in a formal hearing pursuant to Nevada’s Alternative Dispute Resolution process. The hearing was held before a mediator, who had a thorough knowledge of the statutes that affect homeowner associations, General Manager Sandy Seddon and CAM Lori Martin, who primarily observed the proceedings, and legal counsel. The purpose of the hearing was to ascertain whether the Association and I could reach a mutually agreeable resolution to my request for access to certain association-prepared tax audit records that the Association had submitted in 2012 to the IRS in an offer to settle a disputed $1.345 million IRS claim. The hearing did not result in a mutually agreeable resolution.

    The completion of that hearing process, which followed extensive administrative efforts by me to acquire access to those records, was a necessary requirement prior to my initiating a court proceeding to have this matter adjudicated. While an aggrieved homeowner has a right to bring such legal action in court, the exercise of that right might be constrained by very practical considerations related to the high cost of court proceedings.

    What I did not count on, however, was the extent to which the Association was prepared to thwart my future efforts to gain access to those tax-audit records. Before three hearing witnesses, the Association made it abundantly clear what I would be faced with should I pursue this matter in court. The Association threatened to sue me for malicious prosecution in the event that I filed a complaint in court.

    One might reasonably conclude that the Association did not want those requested tax-audit records to see the light of day.

    It becomes clearly evident that our Board Members and our new Manager are jointly participating in a “Cover Up” to protect some of our past Board Members who (Quote) “grossly abused their power in refusing to permit members to access certain records which legally should be made available to any member under existing law” (Un-Quote)

    Question: Where else in America can a person be threatened to be sued by their HOA for malicious prosecution for exercising their rights?

    Sandy Seddon and the lawyers that came in the same box need to pay more attention to the people who live here and stop “Covering Up” for past “misbehavior ?” by some previous Board members. A “Cover-up” is a legal term (look it up) and if proven can be a very nasty surprise to a lot of people who think they are protected but are not. In other words — if you know a violation of law (or Statute) was committed and keep silent to protect the person (or persons) who committed the violations, it may prove to be a violation in itself. It also can effectively eliminate any Statute of Limitations that existed at the time the offence was discovered.

    I’m just saying ——

    Rana — and all concerned.

    We have had new Boards elected and new Presidents and Vice Presidents and new Lawyers and new Managers but NOTHING has changed as far as the leadership’s policy of “cover up the past” is concerned. They will lie when ever it is convenient to lie. They will deny and act like every other tyrant who needs to cover up the sins of their predecessors.

    I have been told by the current State Attorney General that he has appointed an investigator to look into some of their current funny business concerning a court case right here in Henderson but it may take a while. I can prove that one of our current Lawyers lied in Court but I just have to wait and see what his investigation turns up.

    Hopefully the Nevada AG will put a stop to the liars and their cover ups. As far as I’m concerned I will not meekly hide away and be silent. I want Justice and I will go fully public if necessary to expose these liars.

    The State of Florida has proposed a condo bill that imposes CRIMINAL PENALTIES on condo crimes. The proposed Florida bill No. HB 1237 includes provisions to increase transparency, avoid board fraud and conflicting activities by condo lawyers. The Bill would also protect their citizens from being victimized by the Home Owner Association they live in and pay dues to.

    In my opinion EVERY State (Especially Nevada) needs to enact the equivalent of Florida bill HB 1237 that protects condo owners from board fraud and from being victimized by an out of control Board of Directors.

    For the first time this condo bill proposes CRIMINAL PENALTIES on condo crimes. But, it also includes provisions to increase transparency, avoid board fraud and conflicting activities by condo lawyers.

    HB 1237 is fast moving through the Florida legislature. It passed the Judiciary Committee yesterday: YEAS 17 NAYS 0! It is expected to be adopted soon.

    —————————————————-

     

     

    Brief bill history of Florida Bill No. HB 1237.

    el Nuevo Herald and Univisión 23 published the series “Condo Nightmare,” an investigation that revealed cases of electoral fraud, forgery, conflicts of interest, alleged misappropriation of funds and fraudulent bids in several South Florida condominiums. See Miami-Herald 2/16/2017 report “State fails to protect condo owners from board fraud, grand jury finds”.

    http://www.miamiherald.com/…/miami-da…/article131156184.html

    A Miami-Dade County Grand Jury issued its Final Report – Addressing Condo Owners’ Pleas for Help: Recommendations for Legislative Help- on February 6, 2017, nearly a year after the “Condo Nightmare” report was filed.

    Some residents might wonder why our Manager (Sandy Seddon) and the Association’s Lawyers were not here on May 27, 2016 in the afternoon. They were attending an Arbitration and Mediation meeting at 1:00 pm on that day. It didn’t go very well and because it failed I was given permission to seek Justice in the Civil Courts (including the Small Claims Courts)

    It all started in April of 2011 when I filed an NRED complaint (IS-11-2397) against then Board Member Roz Berman for not correcting the record when I was falsely charged by Board Member Jack Troia of violating a “Code of Conduct. I complained against Roz Berman when I found out that she KNEW that the “Code of Conduct” had been removed when her husband had TWO complaints from TWO different woman against him. On April 14, 2011 I received a letter from NRED that informed me that The Compliance Section does not have Jurisdiction and they suggested that I initiate a Alternate Dispute Resolution process which I did.

    After a lot of hassling with our Board and their legal staff finally on March 28, 2016 I was notified by a State Mediator that an Arbitration Meeting was being scheduled. That is the why and wherefore that took up the time of our new manager Sandy Seddon on May 27, 2016. She knows all about Roz Berman and her husband that had TWO Code of Conduct Complaints filed against him when she voted to eliminate it. She also knows that Jack Troia falsely claimed that I had violated that Non-Existent Code.

    I wonder why this information is not published on our SCA Website?

    Dear Director Jim Mayfield;

    I can’t believe you really said this.

    ——————————————————————————-

    4. Know Your Rights. Nevada law and the governing documents provide homeowners with influential ways to report and seek redress of violations of your rights. One of the best actions you can take is to file an Intervention Affidavit (“IA”) with the Office of the Ombudsman in the Nevada Real Estate Division. Each IA that is filed is reported to SCA and investigated by the Ombudsman. Another way is to quote a reference to State law or the SCA governing documents in your complaint notices to the SCA Board and management. You, the homeowners, also have the right to remove a director who you do not believe is serving you well.

    ————————————————————————–

    Really Mr. Mayfield?? If you really believe that filing an Intervention Affidavit will be the “Magic Wand” that solves a problem and if you really believe that our current Board is impressed when you quote a reference to Nevada Law you are badly mistaken. The Nevada Real Estate Division (NRED) has one of the most dismal records of Any State in the country against the Homeowners.

    Do you really believe that if you quote a reference to Nevada Law that the Board members will cringe in terror and invite a complaining homeowner to a tea party to “Talk things over”?

    And — Your reminder that “You, the homeowners, also have the right to remove a director who you do not believe is serving you well.” Granted it’s good advise but perhaps you are unaware that less than 75 percent of all the residents really vote when there is an important issue facing the residents. For one example — Do I really have to remind you that there are only 162 Villa home owners in SCA and that even if they voted 100 percent to remove a director for misappropriating their Reserve Funds do you really think they would lose any sleep at night?

    I would be absolutely amazed Mr. Mayfield if you were even aware that our current Management and our current Lawyers have recently spent a TON of the residents money to have a complaint moved from The Las Vegas Justice Court to the Henderson Justice Court. All that money is approved by the Board of Directors so maybe (just maybe) you can tell us WHY?

    I would like to also thank Rana and Dan for their success. Sometimes it seems like the “little guy” never gets a break but once in a while Justice is achieved by some dedicated and persistent ‘good guys” that care.

    Marcia;

    I have received a letter (Dated Feb. 22, 2017), from The Nevada Attorney Generals Office regarding the “Kangaroo Court” hearing our Board of Directors conducted when I was accused of violating a Non-existent Code of Conduct by former Board member Jack Troia. The letter informed me that my complaint has been forwarded to an investigative unit and I am continuing to furnish that Office with additional evidence. The excessive legal costs you mentioned may soon be tripling. I am continuing to contribute additional evidence from my files. If the Nevada AG finds cause, the case may involve our Community Manager and the Legal staff and a failed Mediation attempt.

    Sun City Anthem employs some very expensive Attorney’s and I for one want to know if we employ them for the benefit of the residents or do we employ them only to defend the Board Members against legitimate complaints.

    Currently the Residents of Sun City Anthem employs a lawyer named David T Ochoa who signed a document and submitted it to a Small Claims Court. When he did – he also signed and stated that (Quote) Per NRS 53.045, I declare under penalty of perjury under the law of the State of Nevada that the forgoing is true an correct. (Un-Quote). The document that Attorney David Ochoa referred to made a claim that only TWO Sun City Anthem Board members had been asked to recuse themselves from deliberations on August 26, 2010. THAT WAS A LIE and the attorney David Ochoa knew it was a lie because he had been given a copy of my attorneys statement that revealed the names of THREE SCA Board members who were asked to recuse themselves NOT JUST TWO. Previous Board Member Jack Troia was the third but he defied my lawyers request.

     

    ——————————————————————-

    My question for all members who are running for a position to be a Sun City Anthem Board Member is this;

    If you are elected are you going to continue employing the Attorney David T Ochoa who committed perjury when he signed and submitted that statement to The State of Nevada?
