Real estate Q&A: All owners will have to pay for HOA's mistake

Q: I live in a community with a homeowner's association. The board hired unlicensed workers to paint and replace fences. The city then cited our association with a code violation and a fairly substantial fine. There is also the expense to fix the issue. The board members want to pass the fines along to the homeowners who live close to those fences. Can they legally do this? Are the board members individually liable?

3 ways to avoid paying a loan origination fee for your mortgage

One of these fees is the loan origination fee.

Real estate Q&A: Condo owner won't leave for termite tenting

Q: Our condominium building has termites and needs to be tented. Everyone must leave for two full days. One owner is refusing to leave, saying he doesn't have any termites and doesn't want strangers in his home. His wife is bed-ridden, and, quite frankly I don't believe he can afford to stay in a hotel for two nights. If he and his wife don't leave, the building can't be treated. What are the rights of the other residents, and what action can be taken to get him and his wife to vacate?
