My HOA partial payment victory

Appellate Court Fourth District Division three ruled in our favor for a second time 10/14/2014

 

A true victory for 9,000,000 who live in California HOAs. Many homes will be saved by this ruling!

 

For homeowners in California it all started with a clever attorney crafting a contract requiring the attorney fees be paid first from the payments paid by the homeowner during collection, rather, than as the law states, that the assessments be paid first. Attorney’s are really good at changing the meaning of a sentence, the meaning of a word, and completely twisting black to white, or white to black. However, the law is so clear that, that assessments are paid first, that a 6th grader would understand.

 

I have a copy of Feldsott and Lee’s contract to collect assessments given to me in court by Action Property Management. The contract between Huntington and Feldsott (signed by Rustan Laine),clearly states that rather than paying down the assessments with the money that comes in from collections, that the fund will go to pay the attorney first, it says that the “client” is free to get a second opinion. It also states the association does not have to pay the attorney (for the time being) for collections. So, what does this do? I think its easy to see if an association had to actually pay the attorney fees while foreclosing on someone’s home for just $1800 they would NEVER go through with it. In short order the attorneys fees are 10 times the amount they are trying to collect. This is what makes the whole thing a “racket” because the attorneys refuse your partial payments and you, as homeowner, are forced to pay the attorneys or have your home foreclosed. Like holding an axe over your neck with the attorney’s hand out for lots and lots of money.

 

It’s just my opinion, but if the funds collected by the attorney went to pay down the assessments, as the law states, most of these collection cases would have never ended in foreclosure and the attorney’s “racket” would have failed. Feldsott is not the only one doing this, most have jumped on this bandwagon, and many have grown to huge rich law-firms with lots of power and influence. The association signed what I believe is an illegal contract and not applying the assessments per law was illegal – at least that is what the court has ruled.

 

I just won, with the help of my excellent attorney, an appellate decision in Superior Court of Orange County a very important victory for each and every homeowner in the entire State of California. However, this victory may be short term unless homeowners like yourself band together to force HOAs like the Huntington Continental and it’s collection attorneys to follow the law and not make their own rules. While the laws have been clear since they were written it takes a court action to make a party follow those laws. This victory just came for all Home Owners in an Association, HOA, and Common Area Development members located in the State of California. This affects all Common Area Developments, Homeowner Associations, HOA, etc. – the law is clear, this ruling just supports what that law states (and the HOA attorneys hate it!). It is my understanding that all California Courts may refer to this decision.

 

In my case, had the HOA simply given me the accounting, and the attorney applied my payments, I would have owed nothing and this case would have never went to trial. As they say “pigs get fat and hogs get slaughtered” had the attorney just accepted the money this would have never gone to court and they wold still be enjoying their partial payment lawyer fee windfall.

 

Please email this website if you have a similar issue and your HOA in California is not accepting partial payments. The law is clear.

 

For years these HOA collection attorneys have been making a killing from the poor owners in associations convincing a Board of Directors to foreclose on people when they owe as little as a few hundred dollars in back assessment dues. The attorneys would write SECRET contracts with the HOA that was not conforming with the law. Legislation in California named the Davis-Stirling Act was passed to protect owners in associations. Unfortunately for owners, association attorneys gravitate to the entity who has the biggest pot of gold because that is who can pay their $200-$600 per hour paychecks. What does this do? It makes it almost impossible for someone to find a competent attorney to fight against the blatant disregard of the law and its clear common language.

 

You may find and read this exciting decision with the link below:

 

HUNTINGTON CONTINENTAL TOWN HOUSE ASSOCIATION, INC. v. THE JM TRUST

 

In a sentence this decision forces the HOA to accept partial payments so that an owner can stop foreclosure. Accepting partial payments is in conformity with the law. However HOA attorneys, who no one can fight these people because it costs a lot of money to fight an attorney who is paid by the HOA, have completely ignored this law for many years and have taken the homes of people who had the funds to pay partial payments to keep their home from foreclosure.

 

Why do they do this to owners who owe just a few hundred dollars? Here is their simple formula as stated by Feldsott on their own website….

 

“Of course, the prevailing party may recover attorney fees. Not too long ago, our office litigated a case where the attorney fees awarded and paid (trial and appeal) were more than $60,000 in a suit over $3,000 in assessments.”

Where do they get their goldmine payment?

 

FROM THE SALE OF YOUR HOME!

 

You owe $3,000, they spend $60,000 to collect your milk money of just $3,000, then the HOA allows them to sell you home and collect their unconscionable winnings of $60,000 on your itty bitty $3,000 debt. The sell your home, they take the equity in the home to pay their unconscionable fees which is nothing less than a Mafia-style racket. Mickey Cohen would have been proud. So who benefits most, the HOA? or the attorney?

 

How do they make the scheme work? By not accepting partial payments. We are not singling out any specific attorney or firm because most of them have decided play this game and it has worked for several years until now. And, believe me, the attorneys who have made so much money from this scam, are not happy with this ruling.

 

My side of the story – What the lawyers say is not accurate

 

In a nutshell

 

  • I got behind on my HOA dues due to unavoidable circumstances;
  • I wrote a letter to the management that I would pay my dues in full and enclose a check;
  • I asked repeatedly for “itemized” accounting from HOA, BOD, managers and attorneys;
  • No one on HOA side would send the accounting – they simply ignored me;
  • I send additional payments and continued to ask for accounting;
  • I paid off the complete balance of my HOA account before I was ever served with a lawsuit;
  • The lawyer rejected my cashier check payment in full sent to her office;
  • The lawyer then sued me;
  • I was not served with a lawsuit UNTIL after I attempted to make my payments in full!;
  • In the trial court, the sleepy 85 yo retired judge ruled against me;
  • In appeals court where they strictly follow the law, 3 judge panel, in concert, reversed the trial court and ruled in my favor;
  • It was clear that partial payments had to be accepted per the law, and the attorney had not followed the law;
  • The appeals court Certified the Decision which means other homeowners may force payments;
  • That is the basics, there is a lot more to the story, but that is the basics;
  • The collection attorneys HATE the ruling and now they are fighting to have it changed;
  • They are attempting to fight the ruling, protecting you, using YOUR HOA money!

 

There is always more to the story. The trial was rather short and the judge was dis-interested, sleepy – he could not have cared less and I found out later his grand-daughter is friends with the collection attorney daughter! This is more about the attorney firm doing everything in their power to get their attorney fees than me paying my assessments. I asked for my line item accounting many times in every conceivable manner I could. Even writing the BOD several letters. The collection attorney kept adding their fees to the assessments I owed and taking their “pay” off the top… right from my assessment payments. It was an evil game but the only entity that can stop the attorney from playing the game is the court.

 

My attorney had flown in. The story was much much longer than the evidence selected for the case. This case concerns a rental condo I had not lived in for 8 years. I never asked for or agreed to a “attorney generated payment plan” they simply sent one in the email. I never even saw the payment plan from the attorney until I was searching email for the case. I kept asking for my accounting, as it changes every month with the fees they add. No one would send my accounting, not the HOA, the management or the attorney.

 

I sent a simple letter with a $2,000 check stating I would pay of the account. I then sent two more payments of $1,000 and $500. I then thought I was close to full payment of the account and I demanded my accounting in several letters. No accounting came. I then sent a letter stating that if you are not going to give me my accounting I must only owe my regular assessments. I then sent in checks for my regular assessments of $188 each. After that, out of nowhere I get a “default letter” from the attorney that I had been defaulted on my case! Not funny, I had never been served with any lawsuit. According to the attorney I had been served at my condo. I informed the attorney that I had not lived at the condo for 8 years and that my married tenants state they had never received anything – she insisted I had been served (I have an email from the HOA President stating they knew I was not served). I have been called by three people the process server did the same thing to. It’s called gutter service where the server throws the service in the gutter and swears to the court he served you.

 

I continually asked for my line item accounting from all sources; the attorney’s assistant just played with me, never sending what I asked for (note that in court he lied on the stand and stated he sent my accounting). At that point I was pretty frustrated so I calculated what I could have owed and sent a long letter to the HOA President with a certified funds check to his home. He send me an email stating he accepted the payment.  I had plenty of money to pay all the assessments for many months previously but the Collection Attorney prevented that by not sending the line item accounting and played Hocus Pocus with the numbers on his summary accounting. What I did not know, and what is against the law, is the collection attorney PAY THEMSELVES FIRST out of the assessments you pay in a situation such as this – so they have no incentive whatsoever to close your case because every payment you make is diverted to pay the collecting expenses, which is not in conformity with the law.

 

The bottom line is that there are many details and events that are left out of the ruling, and even though the ruling is in the favor of the homeowner, the actions of this group of collection attorneys is reprehensible. I did everything possible to pay the assessment dues and the Attorney just kept throwing them back in my face. Why, because at the end either you pay all their fees, or they sell your property and collect their fees from the sale of your property. In my case there was more than $100k equity – they had every reason to keep the case going, keep the billing going, take the house, and get they paycheck on sale. Just my opinion of course but if you read the collection attorney’s own website on how he collected $60,000 in fees on a $3,000 it’s rather pathetic – grotesque. It pure theft when some hard working soul gets into a situation where they can not pay their assessments, and some attorney forces their way into the situation demanding their fees on top of the assessments that can not be paid… “well sir, you owe just $3,000 in HOA assessments, but you now owe $60,000 in attorney fees, we will need to sell your house to pay our attorney!” It’s reprehensible that society allows this segment of law as a profession.

 

I don’t know know how these people can sleep at night. Some attorneys twist every word…. but this statement in the law could not be more clear… of course they don’t want to abide by this! Do you think an attorney wants the HOA to place a lien on your house for the attorney fees? That would never happen. So, unless they (the law firm) can force foreclosure and sell your house, their “racket” is over… and we expect they will fight hard just like Mickey Cohen. When there is a big pile of money the suits fight really hard to get their hands on it.

 

The law could not be more clear: “In addition, any payments toward that debt shall first be applied to the assessments owed, and only after the principal owed is paid in full shall the payments be applied to interest or collection expenses”

 

What is not clear? Any payments made SHALL be applied to the assessments owed…. and after the assessments are paid the future payments go to the other unpaid items. Ah ha! So what do the clever collection attorneys do? They write a “payment plan” (contract) for you to sign that forces you to give up your rights under the law. In my case the attorney kept arguing that I had a payment plan… which was never the case. I never asked for, accepted, signed, or agreed to a payment plan of any kind. I simply send the management company a letter that I would make the payments owed. Don’t sign a payment plan! Just make your payments and the law protects you. If you sign one of their evil payment plans then you are signing a contract and you are bound to what it states in the contract. Be careful!

 

The alarming part about all this – attorneys and law firms don’t want to play by the law! It’s been Goliath v. David for many years. The poor owner does not have the money for assessments let alone attorney fees. This is why the law was written – every dime goes to assessments first!

 

The ruling is starting to show up on the web. We have noticed that the major collection attorneys have not shown the ruling. We believe they are going to try and fight it with Feldsott and Lee. We believe they will band together to try and take away your rights.

Attorney’s overview of how she reads the ruling

Basically she is stating paraphrased: “you are not going to take away my cash cow mister! Your Southern California law means nothing up here in Northern California and I am just going to advise my clients to continue to foreclose so I get my big paydays!”

The Condo Guru’s perspective

 

Feldsott’s perspective

This might be Jacqueline Pagano the young attorney who lost the case. She wanted to keep beating it into the appellate judges that I had a “payment plan.” Having a payment plan, drawn up by the attorney, gives the attorneys some rights. Effectively it’s a contract. I NEVER HAD, NEVER ASKED FOR, NEVER READ, NEVER SIGNED and never wanted a payment plan. I wrote a simple letter to the management company NOT EVEN THE ATTORNEY. They are still trying to change history. Sorry, never had a payment plan of any kind.

Doesn’t it all make sense? If HOA payments are so important to the HOA why would they be refused at any time? Just how many people have lost their homes over this practice? CAI did not support Feldsott & Lee, or file a brief in appellate court. See Attorney Steven Roseman’s important CAI post: Accepting partial payments. Note – This site is filled with information. Note that it does not offer legal advice.

 

VICTORY! – The Fourth District Third Division agreed with the Appellate Division of the Superior Court! See decision below. This will save a lot of homes. If your HOA or management company is refusing payments waive the law in front of them. SEE BELOW. Even if they file a foreclosure action you can now save your home.

  2015 - Another victory for the little guy. $30,000 in attorney fees - poof!
» 444.5 KiB - 212 hits - September 29, 2015
Keystone Pacific assessed me about $120 in fines and interest. Again, the association's providers caused this issue, and they would not take the blame. I refused to pay. I sued, in small claims and they counter sued - then they dropped that case. They sued me again and tried to get attorney fees. Erica Griffith of Keystone Pacific became BFF with James Harkins Esq. and was calling and emailing him almost daily about my case! What then did sweet Erica Griffth do? Then sweet little Erica thought she would simply place those charges for her 'legal consultations' on MY ledger so I could pay for her legal advice! Gee who's getting rich here off the backs of HOA owners? So anyway they sue me AGAIN in small claims. Judge rules against me. I know the law, I appealed. During the appeal, I get tired of all this and sue everybody for their bad deeds (that is the 17 defendant lawsuit). Judge allows the small claims appeal to be consolidated with my new unlimited lawsuit. He gives association chance to prove their case now in unlimited civil division. Just on small claims case James Harkins legal fees are about $30,000! Over a $120 issue! Keystone has written checks paying their friend James Harkins. As they say one hand shakes the other in this HOA business and Keystone and Harkins 'coincidentally' work together on the same HOAs. When the going get's tough.. the tough run like hell. When the Judge rules and found consolidation to be appropriate the association (most likely urged by Keystone and Harkins) decided it no longer wished to fight! (I guess someone was more comfortable ambushing me with attorney briefs in small claims court, then fighting a real fight) so they told the Judge they would dismiss. Well well well... like Wily Coyote Harkins sneaks into court and dismisses without prejudice! By law he has to dismiss forever... with prejudice. So, I was then forced to go through many months forcing them to dismiss with prejudice. Judge ruled today! I win, they lose. $30,000 in Harkins attorney fees POOF! Out the window! So, will James Harkins and Keystone pay this money back to my association? Can you believe Keystone authorized $30,000 to be spent in attorney fees over a $120 debt caused by the association? How does it 'really' work in this business? The poor owners in every HOA fund the lavish lifestyles of people like Stanly Feldsott, James Harkins and the owner of Keystone Pacific - Sharon L. Todd. That is my opinion. There are 9,000,000 HOA owners in California alone paying for the lavish lifestyles of these CAI associates who go to their 'awards ceremonies' about who took the most money this year from HOA owners. Unfortunately the HOA business has turned into a racket. The service providers make 'fortunes' off of HOA owners. They know its a racket, and they all participate in the racket on the backs of HOA owners.

  2015 - Owners attorney fees defending law War #1
» 281.8 KiB - 564 hits - February 21, 2015
As you can see these battles are no joke and you play with real money. Sam Walker is a hero. He saved the law for the 9,000,000 people (25% of California's population) that the HOA managers and attorneys were taking homes from illegally. People who could have kept them by making their assessment payments. The owners should go through association's records with fine tooth comb and see what this Association has paid Feldsott and Lee, and James Harkins in attorney fees. Apparently even when attorneys give bad advice, and don't follow the law, they get paid. Why? How much have the Directors paid these attorneys? This is just my opinion of course. Generally it's only the attorney who 'really' profits. And when you look at their payments they make HUGE paychecks from every association who will pay them!

While this ruling is somewhat unclear to us what is clear is the Miner is prevailing party in entire action! Four years of life wasted over this! Attorney Sam Walker is a hero. So many homes will be saved by this ruling. Sam Walker beat Jacqueline Pagano and Feldsot Lee at their own game. My HOA lost a boat load of money because of bad advice from their own attorneys. This had NOTHING to do with my case. Feldsott's interest was to win this case so it could continue it's illegal acts of refusing payment. My opinion of course. It's appears they used my HOA's money to fight their battle: then lost. Who loses in the end? My HOA!

This is the Amicus Curiae brief for appellate court by AARP, HERA and NHLP supporting and in favor of the law where associations are compelled to accept partial payments. However, bigger news is that CAI the association's, attorney's and manager's own association did not support this case and file a brief. Matter-of-fact an attorney writing for CAI wrote an article paraphrased "what's so bad about not accepting partial payments". My personal opinion that CAI did not even support Feldsott speaks volumes. We are in a debt of gratitude for those who have supported us through this nightmare.

» 2.2 MiB - 717 hits - May 13, 2014
This is the brief filed by the Laguna Hills, California collection attorneys, Jacqueline Pagano and Stanley Feldsott. The brief sure looks pretty.. but the words, the facts and the laws are twisted and slanted far in their direction. Anyone wishing to support the cause should read this "respondent's brief" filed by Ms. Pagano. Unfortunately she (in our opinion) mis-characterizes the facts severely in her direction. For example, there was no payment plan. A simple letter was sent to the HOA, not even the attorney. No "attorney payment plan" existed and these are some of the key issues. For 17 years these attorneys have been refusing partial payments even though the law was clear.

This is our reply brief to the appellate court. It's just amazing that this would all have to be done because some attorney would not take your payment. Look at all the money that has been spent... first a trial, then appellate division of Superior Court, now full blown appellate court. It is so sad our legal system has become this way - we are fighting for the little guy. All the little guys who have had their homes taken when they could afford to make payments and some lawyer took their home over a few pennies. This is a good brief. 1365.1 of civil code is also crystal clear - after all you can't pay a disputed charge and go to court to dispute it if the attorney won't take your payment!

» 18.1 KiB - 605 hits - July 18, 2014
This associations newest weapon. Now this lovely group is attempting to claim attorney fees in small claims court. "attorney fees" is a generic term. Are they fees for representation, or consultation, or legal fees. There are distinct differences. See the Judges Bench Guide for Small Claims, Department of Consumer Affairs Small Claims Guide. Don't let some plaintiff bamboozle the court - small claims is about money damages. Anyone should question an award of attorney fees in Small Claims Court. Read The Small Claims Act beginning to end.

» 298.6 KiB - 623 hits - March 21, 2014
These are checks paid by the HOA - not the homeowner! Why are your dues high? This is just a hand-full of checks written to the collection attorneys Feldsott and Lee for the JM Trust case so far - the total at this point may be more than $40,000! This is AFTER I sent a check a paid the debt in full! It just goes to show you how stupid this really is. The amounts in total are probably triple this amount just for the HOA at this point. After an illness two years ago I hobbled into a HOA meeting. I gave a speech offering to settle the lawsuit and handed each of Directors a settlement letter. They did not even read the letter. The spectators clapped and met me outside. Don't ever underestimate the foolishness of your Board of Directors and how much money they will waste in your behalf. Note this is NOT even close to all the checks and payments they have made. Do you think they had a better place to spend this money? Now they want to take 9,000,000 HOA owners rights away. Just wait until you get your special assessment for legal fees!!!

Have you even seen the attorney’s contract and how they make money off of us? How about the Keystone Property Management contracts? These are very interesting reads and something you should be aware of. You might attend more board meetings if you REALLY knew how this all worked.

 

Planned areas of this website include:

 

  • Bios on each of our directors (when they don’t tell you about them when they run for office)
  • A forum where you can post your issues and discuss the Board of Directors, Keystone Management Company and Feldsott and Lee, the attorney firm the board has received so many complaints about.
  • A classified site for things for sale in the complex.
  • All documents for the association for easy download.
  • And much much more!
