NEPA Landlord Tenant Homeowner Association Blog



Commentary on issues regarding property rights, this blog relays information on events past, present, and into the future in Northeast PA (USA). While facts are presented, an opinion may be thrown in the mix to make things more interesting. Corrections are welcomed by using the comments -  as long as we see documents to back it up.

As far as the comment part of this blog, we appreciated hearing from people literally all over the world! We generally don't publish the comments though because this is a local blog. Even so, comments published are rare unless they add to the story or a correction is needed and information sent was confirmed. Glad you're enjoying it though! We STILL have some freedoms here and intend to exercise them at will!

Meeting with W/B Real Estate Investors Association

What local governments run by ordinance happy folks count on is (a) the residents' not being informed, (b) inability to get together, and (c) the unwillingness to take action. Oh, sure you ALWAYS have the complainers, and there's probably an old book council members use on how to deal with "those" people. In the end the new laws rarely are challenged and life gets tougher.

Another issue is that fear we used to see in the old Soviet days, where people who speak And this isn't necessarily unwarranted paranoia. A certain individual with rentals living in Leningrad next to Duryea got slammed with crippling expensive inspections after speaking out at a town hall meeting. Yes, you keepah you mouth shut, comrade! 

Most normally operated local governments respect people's basic Bill of Rights guaranteed in Pennsylvania and America...but there's a few who have emancipated themselves from the yoke of any Constitutional Law...because they can. This should raise the blood pressure of any self-respecting veteran of military service - the blood, sweat, and tears shed by so many though the ages mocked by a few brats drunk with power. It must be said, though,  that certain individuals really have the best interest in mind for safety, but are simply misinformed.

Well, NEPALTA sees a need to be filled. Once we identify issues, we desire an informal meeting to discuss discrepancies regarding property ordinances. Understanding the needs to correct blight conditions, we seek to find a common sense approach that fits this depressed area.

But the reality is that there are individuals who have elevated themselves, not as public servants, but as lords. That's what elections are for in THIS country and litigation in the meantime to keep them from becoming lazy.

 And so to those who have donated, we appreciate knowing others are willing to do their part in the quest for better government BY the people.
