Homeowners Association Basics: Minnesota Home Talk Legal Minute

Homeowners Association Basics: Minnesota Home Talk Legal Minute


This Minnesota Home Talk Legal Minute touches on a topic near and dear to my heart; namely, homeowner associations.  You can hear my Legal Minute segments during the show every Saturday on 1500 ESPN at 7 a.m. and On Demand.

I have written a lot on HOAs over the years.  Why?  Because I have a lot of material to work with.  I live in a rarity – a single family development controlled by a homeowners association.  It’s provided for a lot of interesting material over the years – some good, some bad.

Rather than republish all of the material here (which, at this point, would resemble either an online treatise or a chapter or two of a memoir), for those that want to read more, click on any of the links below:
