The El Mirador Homeowners Association (EMHA) is in Santa Teresa, NM.
This website is dedicated to events between a homeowner and the El Mirador Homeowners Association (EMHA) occurring in the El Mirador subdivision of Santa Teresa, NM.
Homeowner associations have bad reputations, some deserved, some undeserved. It seems that certain personality types gravitate together to form cabals that can, if allowed, consume an association in very negative ways. In one instance, Samir Farran et al. v. Olde Belhaven Towne Owners' Association, the HOA bankrupted itself and had to sell its common area over a dispute arising from a political sign.
The information presented herein paints a much darker picture than a mere dispute over the exact size of a small, temporary yard sign. Discrimination, harassment and oppression of a single homeowner by the El Mirador Homeowners Association, Inc. (EMHA) has been alleged, as well as the Association's allowance and participation in creating and maintaining a hostile environment against the same homeowner by a former Board member. The homeowner alleges that the Association's Board of Directors and Design Review Committee members routinely engage in bad faith, violate state and federal law, and have breached their duties to the membership in many ways, resulting in a corrupt organization serving its own interests.
To date it appears that the legal fees directly attributable to the actions of EMHA against the homeowner are in the area of more than $15,000 and less than $20,000 for fiscal year 2021. It remains to be seen what, if any, benefit the Association's membership have received in exchange for these legal costs. According to EMHA Board President Richard Doyle, street repairs have been put off and assessments against homeowners may be raised as a direct result of the Association's current course of action.
The aggrieved homeowner (Homeowner X) promises to fight the Association's wrongdoing in every way possible and expose the acts of EMHA Board and Committee members for as many years as is required. So far it has been almost three years. This website is one part of that promise.
