Owners Rights

    1. Petition by

      Audrey Nguyen

      Irvine, CA

Whose having problems parking in our community that we pay for from residents to guests?  Who are these people that are making these rules for us to get our cars tow in the middle of the night?  When you go to them to say you need a parking spot what do they tell you?  "Oh!  There is a parking lot across Michelson, you can pay $95/month."  Do you even wonder if they make a cut from the towing to the parking lot across the street or do they own those services?

Merit Property Management is our homeowners association.  We pay them from $350-$900 monthly and that's $4,200-10,800 a year.  For them to say that can't do something, because it's against the rules that they made.  We ask them to do small things to benefits our living situation.  Isn't that why we pay them for?  To make our lives easier.  But instead, late at night they call the towing service to quietly and quickly remove our car right in front of our houses.  WHY EVEN PAY THEM IF THEY'RE NOT DOING ANYTHING FOR US BESIDE COLLECTING CHECKS EVERYWHERE? WHAT'S THE POINT???  Why are they treating us like this when we are the reason why they even have a paycheck?

Merit's rule for guest parking is:  Guests are only allow to stay overnight 10 days in a 90 day period.  What if you have a boyfriend/girlfriend who want to stay over night every other night?  Are they saying we can only have your boyfriend/girlfriend stay over night 10 days of a 90 day period? The 11th night they stay over, Merit's rule is subject-to-tow.  This is ridiculous!!!  

Residents can't park in the parking spots that are created right in front of their houses and street, when not a single car ever parks there.  What sense does this make? These are minor issues that can be easily resolved.  If some residents need an extra parking spot, Merit can allow one extra parking permit per household.

Why don't these people worry about important issues like the landscaping with dog feces all over and missing plants here and there because of the wind, or the fleas and bugs in the grass/landscape around where we live. 

Kimberly Nielsen - One of the broad member of HOA of CPW or who is this lady?
Why is this Kimberly Nelson not acknowledge our rights? How can we get a new board members who actually cares about their residents, instead of sitting behind their desk collecting money and ignoring resident emails?  If Kimberly actually respond to you, she basically emails you back to tell you that SHE WON'T or YOU CAN'T do anything about it.  Remember, HOA is to serve us.  We pay them.  We can find another HOA that will meet our needs.

We want our rights.  We need residents to stand together for our rights in the community.  Please help us by signing this petition to change the resident/guest parking rules to:  

*Each household will be issued up to 3 resident parking permits.

*Residents are allowed to park in any parking spots in our neighborhood as long as they have a permit.

*Guest can stay as long as they choose to.  All they have to do is check in with Patrol One by phone, online or in person every night.

*Reasonable "Subject to tow."  Residents/Guests are not allowed to park their cars in one space for more than 72 hours without moving it due to city laws anywhere.  Usually in normal neighborhood, if there is complaint from another resident then, a note should be issued for the car to be moved within 24 hrs or it will be subject to tow.  No parking in the loading zone or fire lanes.   Breaking these rules, you car will be tow.

If you agree with these changes please sign this petition with your name, email address, and street address.  Please spread this link to your neighbors and roommates.  

Thanks so much for your time!

    2. Please attend the HOA Meeting!!!

      Petition Organizer

      They're saying home owners never attend the meetings!! The reason for that was because we don't know when the meetings are and it was always during the day when we have work. Christophe has made Kim aware that everyone has work during the day to be able attend the meeting at those given hours. Kim finally started to schedule all the HOA meetings to where we'll would be able to make it after regular hours.

      The HOA meeting is every third Wednesday of every month at 6pm. Please attend these meeting if you're available so we can change this simple issue we're having. Please pass the word around to neighbors and other residents.

      Thanks so much!

    3. New parking rules has been mailed out last month! Please respond to it!

      Audrey Nguyen
      Petition Organizer

      They're trying to change the parking rule to be even more strict than it already is. You only get to check in on the safelist per house a total of 15 times in a quarter(90days) during 2-5am. Please look for that letter and respond to it! They said they only got 3 letters in and they all agreed on the new rules. It's deadline is June 7th, in 6 days.

      You can also go to their office to ask for another one. Let me know if you have any questions on this.

      Thank you!

    4. Please VOTE for CHRISTOPHE HA for Director of the Board Member!!!

      Petition Organizer

      Christophe Ha is my boyfriend who bought a home like yourself and we're working together to get this petition going to change our living situation for the better. All of you should have received a letter in the mail that there is a seat available for one homeowner to be a board member. There should be a ballot sent out in the near future with all the candidates they approve to be on the board. Kim Nielsen has confirmed that, Christophe will be on the ballot. Please vote for him to represent us for a better living!!

      Note: When Kim contacted Christophe, she said that she will put him on the ballot, but she doesn't think he can do anything about the parking situation. She stated that some residents here wants every car to be towed without first noticed. Then Christophe asked her, "Ok, for what reason that they want that?" Kim didn't respond. As you noticed, our Board Members are not helping our living situation to be better but to make up lies that doesn't make any sense.

    6. HOA is trying to STOP RESIDENTS from knowing about this petition!!!

      Audrey Nguyen
      Petition Organizer

      We have noticed less than an hour after we put flyer on resident vehicles that it's being taken away from someone in the community for weeks now. It could be Patrol One taking them off of the car because of the HOA are aware of this petition is going on. HOA was aware of this petition TWO DAYS after this petition was online. There was a phone call from Kimberly immediately, denying that it's HOA fault for towing and citations on our vehicles. She blamed Patrol One is doing all the towing and citations and it's not HOA because they are not open after 6pm. It's Patrol One's fault for doing that. Does this lady think we're that stupid? I honestly can't believe she said this. One, HOA make the rules. Two, HOA hired Patrol One to follow their rules. It's HOA's rules that made Patrol One to tow our vehicles at 3:30am-5am, while we're deeply asleep.

      Help us stop this madness!!! Please help us spread the word!!
