News and Other Things for Harbour Vista Community Huntington Beach
posted 26 December 2016
Featured Article

by Aimee Rosendahl
This is part 2 of how our HOA has destroyed our lives. Our HOA has a judgement against us for approximately $100k for just legal fees. No damages. They placed a lien on our Unit. The reason for the judgement is “We did not ask for permission”. For the last 6 months the HOA has been trying to collect its judgement by forcing us to sell our condo. We have been forced to file bankruptcy. I write this article as a warning to other homeowners to not stumble into this predicament.

This story will be broken down into four parts. The first part was published last month. See
"Part1: Starting Our Remodeling".This is the second part.
Part II: Trying To Work with Everyone
As we mentioned in Part 1, we had just finished the demolition stage of our remodeling, had stripped out the flooring and the old appliances, and reinforced the structure before removing an interior wall, when the City placed a stop work order on our door. We needed to obtain City permits. A couple of days later, the HOA Board sent a Cease and Desist letter until an Architectural Application was received.  It was a generic letter so we assumed it was just protocol.
What We Needed To Do
We have two things to do: The first was to resolve the concerns with the the City by obtaining the proper building permits and inspections. The second was to comply with the HOA and submit an Architectural Request which required neighbor signatures. We apologized to the Board and submitted our Architectural Application within days.  That seemed the easy part, but the city would prove to be more challenging.
Meeting the City Requirements
The City required that we hire a State Licensed Architect and have certified drawings submitted. Because the plans showed removal of  a “load bearing wall”, the City also requested that our plans be signed off and calculated by a Licensed State Engineer. We submitted these documents to the City Planning department and two months later, we received approvals to go forward.
Working with the City
Because we had already started construction, the City sent out three City Inspectors to review our work and inform us of what we needed to do to continue.  With new recessed lighting and electrical for an island cooktop, we had to immediately upgrade the electrical panel to add more circuits. Because Harbour Vista's electrical is old, only 70 amps could be run to the unit from the main breakers. This made it imperative that we use energy efficient appliances and lighting (LED’s). New code requires low energy and water consumption installations. 
Meet Current Interior Building Code
The City stated that as long as all changes were accomplished inside the unit and met building code for structural, electrical, sound proofing and so forth  and did not affect the outside of the unit, there would be no problem in going forward.  We had to pay additional fees with the City for starting without permits. 
Trying to Work with the HOA
This was not true with the HOA. The Architectural Request that we had submitted on December 13th 2014 was denied on January 5th 2015.  The Board was silent in December and there was no official Architectural Committee at the time.  Must be a misunderstanding right, how could we be denied?  So we filed an Appeal for the January meeting and ironically enough, the spokesperson for the Architectural Meeting was appointed the same night as our Appeal. We pointed out a few sections in the CC&Rs that allowed us to do what we were doing and would help the Board grant us permission to continue. A week after the Appeal we received a letter from legal counsel stating:
“although the CC&Rs provide the Board with authority to approve certain structural alterations if specific conditions are met, the current Board does not have a history of approving these types of modifications nor is it required to do so." AND ..." do not send any further communication to any of the Board Members."
Original Condition?
The Board wanted us to return everything to its "Original Condition" and then get permission.  No-one had any idea on what was going on except for the City. We had already upgraded our electrical panel and installed shut off valves to all our interior plumbing.  We even asked for a water shut off with no questions asked at the Board meeting in November 2014 long before this nightmare started.  Also due to new building codes, the City would not let us downgrade any of the installation. There obviously was some confusion here.  So we proposed to meet in the unit with the Board and the City inspector
The HOA Walk Thru
In early April, we had a walk thru with HOA President Gayle Poytner, Peggy Shaw from Action and a renter designated by the HOA as “trusted advisor" Bill McCord. The City inspector stated to this group that everything was structurally sound and the City was monitoring the construction to make sure it met
Aimee Rosendahl meeting with City Inspector
building codes and was safe. The “trusted advisor” did not think it was that bad, but the President was furious that we had not returned it to its original condition in less than two month after their rejection. We discovered later that the “trusted advisor” was a former HOA President in 2004 when major the remodeling was accomplished to the unit across the street whose whose plan we were altering. He was actually this owners personal friend. In this unit they even added two bedrooms in the attic space. But no permits were ever pulled or any City inspection.
No Interior Rights?
Everything in our unit was up to City code which exceeds the State requirements. Huntington Beach has its own more strict code requirements). We thought as homeowners that we could make changes to our units interiors.

But according to the HOA President, we only own the air in the unit. Of course there are exclusive use common areas between units, but if common sense prevails and respect for any HOA rules for remodeling are applied then there should be no problem.
No Architectural Guidelines
If you are somewhat confused, understand that our HOA has never published any Architectural Guidelines (Civil Code §4765). There is a vague reference in the CC&R’s that the HOA has the authority to approve remodeling projects, but there is nothing in any HOA documents for:
  • sound proofing when flooring is changed
  • installing recessed lights
  • modifying non-weight bearing walls
  • changing water wasting bathtubs to shower pans and raising low shower heads
  • converting the attic space to a loft.
Published Architectural Guidelines updated once a year is a requirement of the Davis-Sterling Act which makes our HOA in violation of this Civic Code. Permission is difficult to grant when no-one knows what they are doing or what they have authority to do.
Our Original Plan
Originally we had wanted to use the attic space as additional living, but the City of Huntington Beach told us that there were strict requirements for converting this area into bedrooms. We did not want to do anything that was in violation of any building codes. Many of the upstairs 3 bedroom units we discovered were already using their attic space illegally. Our Realtor even bragged about the conversions he had seen. But we did NOT have to use the attic space at this point, we just wanted to continue everything that the City had granted us permission, so we could move in.
Threatening Restraining Order
Days after the unsuccessful walk through to get things resolved, we received a letter from the Attorney threatening a Temporary Restraining Order if we did not Cease & Desist. His letter asked us to sign a form giving up our rights to continue construction. What are we suppose to do?  This is absurd.  So we asked to meet with the Board and Attorney to go over any questions or concerns and finally get to the bottom of everything.  We were already facing a foreclosure on our home in Laguna Niguel.  We were not able to do a short sale anymore since we had nowhere to move.
Another Meeting
We brought everything with us to the EXECUTIVE meeting in April with the Attorney and Action. We were convinced when we left that this nightmare would finally be put to rest. We were asked to submit everything we had (plans, engineering study, city permits, our architectural request form with the neighbors signatures). But as a side note, the Board also asked us to provide our knowledge of the other units that had made changes and did not have permits. We thought the Board should be working with owners, not against them. So we sent everything to Action on April 30th except the other unit’s information. We expected the Board to get back to us fairly quickly as they had promised.
The Nightmare Begins
The first Monday of May while we were working in our unit after requesting a final water shut off, we were served legal papers. The HOA attorney had filed an Ex-parte Notice with the Court. (a rush appearance before a judge because of a safety issue, danger or need or immediate attention)  At the hearing, the judge did not request us to stop our construction, instead he wanted the parties to come together and figure things out.
Our Attorney
Though we did not want to sue the association, we did hire an attorney to help us. We were charged $10,000 for representation (we took every dime from our savings). Without even taking the time to meet with us prior to our new court date, our Attorney got every part of our case wrong. He did apologize to the court for not knowing that the condo was uninhabitable and stating that we were actually living there even though we were not. And then he just left us hanging. He did not even know we had permits from the City. So now what? We can use time and money we don't have to try and go after "our attorney" or we can use everything we have to prepare for the trial in February 2016 and pray that somewhere before then common sense is applied. ■

In Part 3, Harbour Vista will get a new Board through a very strange election. We start over explaining to this new Board what is going on. A judge agrees to let us continue work. We have a settlement conference. A newly discovered non existent safety issue appears. We go trail and and watch as the HOA spent $100,000 of member's money because we did not ask for permission.
Editor Note: There are always two sides to every story. The HOA may have another side. Harbour Vista News welcomes their comments on Aimee's Article and we will be more than willing to publish them.

Dinning Around Harbour Vista
by Jim Gregg
Our first quest for REAL Italian food turned exceptional when we visited Vittorio’s Italian restaurant. Located at the northwest corner of Springdale and Warner Avenue, it has unbelievable ambiance and nostalgia for Italian themed restaurant, and we were thoroughly impressed while dining there for our first time, this place sets the mood from the first instant you walked through the door.

Our hostessTiffany seated us with the courtesy and friendliness that anyone should expect from a fine
place such as this.
Chicken Piccata
Our plate of chicken piccata with angel hair noodles were superbly prepared to our delight.
We also ordered spaghetti and meat sauce with mushrooms, while we had a nice quiet conversation
and observed all the intricate details we missed during our first cursory impressions.

Soft soothing music filled the backdrop while we anticipated the soon to arrive meals.
Every Bit as Good
The food was every bit as good that we anticipated, and our compliments to the chef for their fine work.

We top it off with ice cream and cheese cake deserts, which is but a small election that they offer.

The wine list gives a fine compliment to the meals with a large selection of white, red and chablis
vintage varieties.
Piano Bar and Live Entertainment
Vittorio’s has live entertainment in their piano bar Fridays and weekend dinner hours. ■

January Maintenance Highlights
Update: As of February 2nd, after trying to pull new cabling, Horizon Lighting is in the process of submitting another proposal tothe HOA to remove concrete to repair the Electrical.

As stated at the HOA meeting on Monday January 23, the Board President Mike Mengel has approved repairs of the gate and lightting on an emergency bases. Unfortunately, the quote for this repair was not delivered ti the Board until last Friday January 27. Horizon Lighting was out on Monday January 30. But no repairs were made.

Power & Light's off at Lago Gate
Residence entering Harbour Vista through the Lago gate now find that both sides of the gate are disabled and do not close. This occurred late last week (the week of January 8th). Prior to the Gate disabling, residents had complain to Action Property Management that the large globe lights were out at the entrance. After investigate of the light failures, the HOA electrician company Horizon Lighting determine that the underground cabling was bad. For safety reasons, Horizon Lighting turned off the power which also disabled the Lago gate. Residents then called the Action to complain that theLago Gate was broekn and Electronic Doors and Gates was dispatched only to discover that the power was off. Anyway to make a long story short, electrical repairs, which may require breaking concrete, is scheduled for next Tuesday (January 17th). See note above

January HOA Meeting Highlights
Parking Ticket Policy?
The Executive Council?
On January 23rd the monthly HOA meeting was held in the Cabana Club House with all Board Members in attendance: Mike Mengel Michael Huma, Terri-Piper Johnson, Ted LaMantia and Mary Williams. Action Property Manager Peggy Shaw was also present along with sixteen HOA members.
Bemus Landscape Presentation
Bemus Landscaper provided a short discussion of priorities for sprinkler repairs. Many sprinklers at Harbour Vista do not work, were they proposed using a light acid weed killer (Avenger) instead of Roundup®. This acid does require a longer application time.
Open Forum
  • A member complained about a commercial truck parked on Blackbeard, and the question is who is enforcing parking regulation? The board stated that the members of parking committee, Brenda- Richardson, Terri Piper and Ray Koagel were responsible. Brenda had been sick, it was expressed that all three live on the Grunion side of Harbour Vista which is their responsibility for one third of the parking spaces. The parking committee should consider assigning another person from the Blackbeard-Cabana/Lago side for enforcement. The Parking Committee spokesperson was not present at this meeting.
  • Michael Barto presented a petition to the Board asking them to remove the restriction which he and others consider illegal that prevents him from serving on the board because his primary address is not in Harbour Vista. He requested an answer by the next board meeting.
Dark Lago Gate Entrance
  • A member asked about the broken gate and lights at the Lago entrance. Nothing has been done for more than a week. President Mike Mengel stated that he had authorized an emergency repair last Wednesday (January 18th). Repair may require breaking concrete to run new cabling if wiring cannot be pulled through the old conduit. (See note below).
  • The Rosendahls asked the Board if they had received their settlement request from their bankruptcy attorney. The board revealed that there is an Executive Council within the Board (consisting of Mike Mengel, Ted LaMantia and Mary Williams which will meet to discuss their proposal, and them submit it to the entire board for approval. (See note below).
  • Michael Barto asked, why as publicly announced by HOA legal counsel in court of $40,000 for court hearings and deposition for collection litigation with the Rosendah’s, has not appeared as legal expense in the last couple HOA financial statements. The Board stated that they had made an agreement with the HOA legal counsel to perform these additional legal actions on a contingency bases. The board assurred the members that none of these additional legal expense would be the responsibility of the HOA whether they win or lose.
Financial Report
The HOA reported that it is carrying an (operating accounts deficit) of approximately 8% of the HOA yearly assessments.
Committee Reports
The architectural spokesperson Michael Barto reported that the committee had approved two member’s windows/sliding doors installations. The committee also discussed future architectural guidelines updates as part of the yearly Davis-Sterling requirement. One concern was in-wall space heaters which had been installed in one unit without permits, inspection or HOA permission. Another issue is updating the doors and shades guidelines.

The board informed the members that the architectural guidelines approved at the June 6th architectural committee meeting last year are still with HOA general legal counsel along with the parking rules and regulations. After council review, they will be distributed to the members for 30 days for comments prior to formal approval.
Unfinished Business
A new modernized call box system for all three gates was approved. It will reduce the restrictions with using cell phones to receive calls and open the gate. This is a reserve expense item.

Recipe of the Month
Cold-Buster Soup
by Eden Hommes
My first recipe share of the year is this minestrone-style soup. This soup is full of vitamins and minerals, thanks to the many vegetables in it...especially the Vitamin C in the kale, onion, red bell pepper, broccoli, and tomatoes! If you are struggling through January with a cold or flu, this soup may help speed up your recovery.

Oregano oil is known for its antiviral/antibacterial/antifungal benefits, and can be found online. I only recommend doTERRA essential oils due to their purity and ethical sourcing.

  • 1/2 diced red onion
  • 3 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1 diced red bell pepper
  • 1.5 cups diced broccoli
  • 4 large sliced carrots
  • 3 stalks sliced celery
  • Handful of fresh diced parsley
  • 1 bunch fresh chopped kale (discard stems)
  • 1 28 oz. can Muir Glen organic diced tomatoes
  • 5-6 cups vegetable broth
  • Dried or fresh rosemary, basil, oregano, black pepper
  • 1-2 drops oregano oil (very powerful, one drop flavors the whole pot)
  • 2 cups cooked beans
  • Dash of sea salt as needed
Dice up the vegetables and place in a pot with vegetable broth, adding kale and garlic last after the other vegetables have simmered for about 10-15 minutes and are tender. Stir in the herbs, canned tomatoes, kale, garlic, and beans. Simmer on low, another few minutes. Kale should remain bright green; if it turns a drab green, you have over cooked it and lost vital nutrients! Turn off the heat and add the oregano oil when the soup has cooled to eating temperature. ■

Architectural Committees Meeting Highlights
White Windows/Balcony Doors Approved
Future Architectural Guidelines
The Architecture Committee held an open meeting on December 7th in the Cabana Clubhouse. Three Committee members were present: Michael Barto, Terri Piper Johnson and Brenda Richardson. One HOA member Aimee Rosendahl also was in attendance.
White Vinyl Retrofit Approval
The Committee vote unanimously to approve two architectural requests for the installation of white vinyl retrofit windows and balcony doors in two units in the 16521 Grunion building.
Future Architectural Guidelines
The remainder of the meeting was an exploratory discussion of additions or updates to the Architectural Guidelines for its revision. The current Guidelines were finally approved and sent to Action Property Management legal counsel at the November Board Meeting. The guidelines will probably be approved at the December HOA meeting.This discussion does not affect those approved rules. But Davis-Sterling Act requires review of the architectural guidelines once a year. This discussion was to fulfill this future requirement for Board aproval and to be forwarded to Legal Counsel for review..
No Speakers in Ceilings
At recent open house of a unit for sell revealed that the homeowner had installed speakers in the ceiling of a bottom floor unit. Though this may be allowable for top floor units where there is no-one above you, it was suggested at the meeting that a prohibition on such installation be added to the future guidelines. Also any type of in-wall speaker system install in any internal shared wall between units should be prohibited. Any outside wall or non-shared internal wall speakers installation should be reviewed by the Architectural Committee.
Awning Standard
The Committee discussed some preliminary standards for Awnings such as color and type. The idea for bottom, middle and top floors need to be defined.
A review of the current shade restrictions need to be more clearly defined and revised. Right now, the HOA only allows free standing shades and prohibits any attachment to the balcony. If awnings are going to be acceptable that attach to the balconies, then attachment standard need to be defined as well as type and color.
Balcony Responsible Change
Aimee Rosendahl brought to the attention of the Committee the new David-Sterling law going into effect at the beginning of the year (AB963) will basically, turned the responsibility of maintaining exclusive use common areas over to the homeowner. In Harbour Vista case this will be the balconies. Repair of units balconies at Harbor Vista are has always been funded by the HOA. But many homeowners might prefer to repair their balconies at their expense using more durable materials. This has already been done by some homeowners. Terri Piper Johnson expressed that if we turn the responsibility of the balcony maintenance over to the homeowners that HOA must make sure that they are turned over in good condition.
Front Doors
Utility Doors
Front doors are all over the place at Harbour Vista. The HOA even installed its own non-compliant door a couple of years ago from police action. It was pointed out for the 3 bedroom units, front doors cannot be seem from the outside. Two bedroom units have their doors covered by elevator shares or stairwell. A one bedroom from front door is hidden in a hallways. Many doors are covered by screen and cannot be seen anyway.
Utility Doors
Guidelines for utility doors for the balcony storage closet is not constantly defined or enforced. Several members have received complaints about their utility doors on balconies from the HOA because of color or not the property flat door. But these non-compliant doors were there when the homeowner purchase the unit and have existed for years. There are also many variations of beige.
No Conclusions
No conclusions were reached at the meeting. The Architectural Committee only wanted to develop ideas for future guidelines. All HOA members are welcome to provide input or ideas. The spokesperson email is mbarto@logiqwest.com. You can also text or call him on his cell phone at 714-883-1949.
Request for New Member
Because Aimee Rosendahl has been so instrumental in the development of the “shortly-to-be-released” HOA architectural guidelines and has significant construction knowledge and experiences, the spokesperson Michael Barto wants to recommend that she be appointed to the Architectural Committee. Michael said he would propose this at the next HOA meeting in December .■
