Landscape Maintenance Obligations and the HOA: One More Time

10/26/15 Update:

Nothing has changed.. I still do not see anything happening here the right way… There has not been any change … I continue to do my Owners landscaping obligations per CC&R 4.2… I see my neighbor performing this function… but no one else is here around me….Not even the Meadow Park board member across the street.. I do see him chatting all he time with Jenson landscapers and asking them to perform tasks that he is responsible to do…I am only stating the truth as a viable witness…

10/15/15 Update:

CC&R 4.2:

4.2 Owners Landscaping Obligations. Each Owner shall maintain the landscaping within any Exclusive Use Common Area patio appurtenant to the Owner’s Condominium in a healthy and weed-free condition and shall be responsible for the periodic pruning of any trees and the removal of any diseased or overgrown trees or any trees with root systems that are damaging any Common Area or Association Property improvement.

The Meadow Park HOA continues to overcharge all Meadow Park homeowners for landscape maintenance which is our responsibility to perform! This is totally unbelievable but true….This practice has been going on for a very long time and continues to this day…Years and years have gone by as if this was the right way to do things here…. It is not the right way and never was from the beginning!

Every time there is a new landscape maintenance company hired, a contract is signed and this management company Wakefield Sharp tells them to do all of the landscape maintenance in Meadow Park . Wakefield Sharp has continually ignored our rules!!! Wakefield Sharp acts like we are a rental community instead a community of homeowners…

This illegal activity has not stopped…I continue to document this total ignorance of our CC&R 4.2…. I follow all of our CC&R rules…Wakefield Sharp ignores them and in fact has hired their attorney to change our CC&R rules! That is pure criminal behavior happening right now…

I do not stop performing the Owner landscape maintenance which is required of me…I also pay the very high assessment fees of 233.00 per month. I am continually being overcharged! The HOA owes me so much money!

Well over ten years we have been here and we are treated like stupid people by the management company… The management has a mind-set that makes them feel they are in control of us.. They are better off managing a group of rental apartments.. They are not the right property management company for us.. They are liars and corrupted businessmen. They have not done a good job for us here in Meadow Park… They owe us a lot of money for not following our rules….

Are you being told that you do not have any landscape maintenance obligations? Are you a real Owner in the Meadow Park community? If you have answered yes to both of these questions, then you are being told incorrect information. I started working on this problem several years ago in this community and I still see a lack of responsibility in the Owners for this maintenance requirement. I see nothing being done by most Owners. I see them ignoring their landscape maintenance responsibilities all of the time, including board members! This is shameful but true..

And why is this happening? It is only because the HOA management (the contracted property management company Wakefield Sharp) is telling the landscape maintenance company Jensen to do all of the landscape maintenance in our Meadow Park community. Now again, this means that I am being overcharged every month because they are  ignoring our rules. And it is the management’s fault and no one else. They continue to do this on and on and no one is stopping them. They have misspent our monies for many years now…Just think how little we would have to pay every month to the HOA if Owners were following their landscape maintenance obligations…

They (Wakefield Sharp) never said anything else to the Owners in any mailing. They never told the Owners that the Meadow Park Owners have a responsibility to maintain the landscaping attached to their patios, front and back. Instead they deny and ignore our rules and make invalid contracts that cost the Owners way too much money…The Owners should be doing their landscape maintenance obligations and this would cut down our landscape maintenance costs greatly. RIght now we pay Jensen $16,00.00 per month! If we all did our required landscape maintenance, this cost would be cut in half easily, if not more…We are not a retirement community… We are a community of hard-working families, Owners not renters….

We need to get rid of Wakefield Sharp. They have not been giving us the customer service we deserve. They cost us more money all the time. They are not doing a good job…They ignore our CC&Rs and do what they want. They waste our money! We need to fire them ASAP!

Yes, even some of  the Meadow Park board members do not like that fact that CC&R 4.2 exists…Here is what you currently see when you try to access the HOA’s website. There is no way here for Owners to interact as the message boards were removed and never replaced…

We have a corrupt board and management company running our HOA.

Here is CC&R 4.2 once again:

4.2 Owners Landscaping Obligations. Each Owner shall maintain the landscaping within any Exclusive Use Common Area patio appurtenant to the Owner’s Condominium in a healthy and weed-free condition and shall be responsible for the periodic pruning of any trees and the removal of any diseased or overgrown trees or any trees with root systems that are damaging any Common Area or Association Property improvement.

This just means that the landscaped area that is attached to our front and back patios is our (the Owners) responsibility to maintain. That means to weed it and water it and replace the planting materials as needed! That means if tree roots are interfering in any way, the Owner is responsible to clean it up! This is the place where the planting materials and other important landscaping information is listed:

This CC&R rule 4.2 has never been enforced by the management of the Meadow Park HOA. And as a result, we have this huge monthly payment to these ridiculous landscape maintenance companies like Jensen: $16,000.00 month! That amount could be reduced signficantly if we all did our part and followed the 4.2 CC&R..

Instead, when I tried to bring this matter forward I was harassed and bullied! I tried to communicate to other Owners and was not given any support.

It's a New Day in Meadow Park!

I am only stating this all once again, because the problem keeps repeating itself. And so I go forward with my lawsuit..

I have no fears. I follow all the rules and pay my monthly dues. I am not behind. I am not a dead beat owner. I have no legal problems here, but the HOA management has a lot of legal problems pending….Because they are not following our CC&Rs! This is a joke…They are a joke!
