PLEASE HELP SAVE AND PROTECT OUR LAND
Organized by: Kelvin Anderson
Your help is needed to save and protect people from losing their land. Just a small donation of $10 would help. There have been a number poor people who bought very cheap and inexpensive land in an area of Washington State known as Rimrock meadows. They purchased their land with the belief that they would be able to enjoy the land, have privacy, and possible build a small home. The HOA has filed lawsuits, harassed, and created problems, financial difficulties for these people with what are usually considered illegal or unscrupulous tactics to cheat people out of their land. Unfortunately, some or most were unaware of the covenants (contract) which have been changed repeatedly by the HOA (homeowners/landowners association) and used to allow the association to trespass and charge $50 a day for anything they deem a violation of the covenants. Most people were unaware of this and don't have the money to hire a lawyer. This money adds up real quick and after a short time is far more than the landowners can pay. To make matters worse the association has brought legal action against them for various reasons including but not limited to 'unkempt lots', building a shed without treir permission, and inability to pay for any fees and/or fines imposed by the association. They have been unable pay or to defend against the harassment, trespasses and legal actions and are in fear of losing their land.
Money is needed to hire a lawyer or law office to help save and protect these people from losing their land and all they have. The only way to defend and protect their land is to file a class-action lawsuit against the association, money is needed to hire a lawyer/law office. A lawsuit is the only way to save and protect the land and all they have..
There are approximately 1,000 landowners in this area most unaware of what is going on in this area of 7,000 acres of land with the majority of land divided into 1 acre lots which sell for between $3,000-$5,000 per lot, sometimes less or around $1,000 at auction. The association owns between 5,000-6,000 acres of this land purchased land at auction for many years and resold the land. Unfortunately, there have been a large number of land owners who have just 'given-up' after the continued harassment and legal actions by the association which sometimes goes up for auction only to be purchased and resold by the association. This association appears to be driven by greed and power similar to a dictatorship which has been allowed to get away with what most would consider illegal or in violation of the land owners civil rights. Something needs to be done, a lawsuit is the only way to protect the land and property of these people and to prevent further injustices.
Please help with any donation in any amount even if it's just $10 or with whatever you can give, with enough people helping to fund this project we can raise the money necessary to begin a lawsuit to stop and prevent this from happening here and elsewhere. A minimum of $5,000-$10,000 is needed to begin the lawsuit. There are laws to protect these people, but without the ability to hire a lawyer/law office they are left at the mercy and whims of the association which has been driven by unrelenting greed and power. A lawsuit will allow for dissolution of this association so that these people to live freely without the fear of losing their land and the oppressive and greedy actions of the association.
Hopefully, this lawsuit will set precedent and prevent the same from happening in other areas of the country.
