An excerpt from New Neighborhoods:
"It has been estimated that nearly sixty million people in the United States live in shared ownership communities (SOCs), each governed by a mandatory membership association, or community association-so this book is for just about everyone. Long gone are the days of communes and shtetls. And yet a large majority of Americans are still influenced by a complex and largely misunderstood system of ownership, in which people are forced to give up some of their autonomy to benefit the greater good of their neighbors.
The purpose of this book is to explain the workings of these communities-these "New Neighborhoods"-to the people who live in them, and to let new purchasers know just what they're getting into. While there's a lot of law involved, we've done our best to keep things as simple as possible. Each chapter is informative yet, we hope, entertaining as well...You'll hear crazy stories that may remind you of your neighbors-or may make you realize and appreciate how great your neighbors really are. We'll describe your rights and responsibilities, as well as those of the association, and show you exactly why some of these crazy rules were written in the first place.
It has often been said that a man's home is his castle. For many of us, this couldn't be further from the truth."
