Soldier Reclaims Foreclosed Texas Home

In celebration of Veterans Day, HousingWatch is featuring stories about veterans and active military personnel and their real estate experiences.

You may recall the controversial story of Capt. Michael Clauer and his family in Frisco, Texas, whose home was foreclosed on by the Heritage Lakes Homeowners Assn. because they didn't pay their HOA dues.

The case was complicated by the fact that the Heritage Homeowners Assn. had, indeed, checked with the Department of the Army but was told that Capt. Clauer was not on active duty.

So they proceeded, after months of unanswered letters, with foreclosure proceedings.
