The New Neighborhoods Publishing Company, LLC is an information and resource company dedicated to Shared Ownership Communities: Condominiums, Cooperatives and Homeowner's Associations. Our goal is to bring resources to owners, volunteers and board members that demystify the complex world of common interest ownership housing.
Our first release, New Neighborhoods: The Consumer's Guide to Condominiums, Co-Ops and HOAs, discusses the most important aspects of living and serving in an SOC, including unit owner rights and responsibilities, warranty and developer issues, collecting money, holding meetings and elections, enforcing rules and regulations, nuisance, risk management and operations. The book uses humor and a relaxed, conversational style to help readers navigate the sometimes complicated maze of shared ownership living.
