New Neighborhoods is a non-fiction consumers' guide that details the most important aspects of buying or living in an SOC, as well as providing in-depth information on how to effectively serve as a board member or volunteer. It uses humor, anecdotes and a relaxed, conversational writing style to explain what has become a very difficult legal and social minefield. The book guides readers through choosing their home; clarifies their rights and responsibilities; explains how associations operate, collect money and hold meetings and elections; and also details some of the crazy rules and regulations that have arisen around the country--and how to know when to follow them.
