Within a community, issues could arise that bring out strong emotions for homeowners. Great examples include:
1. Any special assessment
2. Fining and Towing
3. Denial of owner architectural change requests
Homeowners on occasion can react in a less than professional manner and resort to name calling or false accusations. These are usually leveled at the Board of Directors or management. Unfortunately, this behavior can have serious damage to the reputation and/or integrity of those involved. People defend themselves and want to clear their name by turning to act of suing others.
The Directors & Officers policy will respond to this type of suit. This great article from Ian Graham Insurance talks about why early resolution and mediation is the best way to handle a defamation claim.
