Most of your question involves "governance" of the HOA. I'm sure you are familiar with the by-laws, rules and statutes that dictate how management is conducted, and how leadership can be changed. Are you a Board member? Perhaps you should be.

I'm sorry to hear about the confusion in your case. It seems like there might have been a misunderstanding given that your husband reported zero income.

based on the FMV. I am paying cash, no loan needed.
