Should the Board Publicize Names of Delinquent Accounts?

Here’s what one real estate columnist says:

…”There is a question not necessarily of a violation of privacy laws, but of credit laws. Displaying such names could result in the delinquent or violator suing the board if an owner is harassed.” [read more]

This question was asked at the Master Association meeting on Tuesday.  CGRES and the Board of Directors (KB Homes) for the Master Association gave me the impression that something like that would not happen.  I will try to find out the official policy…

What do you think about this?  Please leave a comment :)

    I agree with the author of the article. Those people who aren’t paying are our neighbors… we should be trying to help them get caught up not humiliate them.

    In the Master Association meeting, a Board Member spoke about an arbitration process that would help the homeowners settle on a payment plan so they can get caught up and be in good standing. I think that is a good idea.

    We have offered an amnesty program previously. It was moderately successful. While an arbitration process could be implemented, it requires that homeowners take the first step. Thus far we’ve not seen that.

    We have no way to know if someone is struggling financially or just choosing not to pay. And sadly we believe that in our community it’s a combination of both.

    If I’ve learned anything thus far about living in an HOA, we’re all in this together. The community cannot survive with 30% – 40% of our homeowners not pulling their weight.
