We need you and you need the protection of your fellow homeowners. The more members we have, the better we are heard as we work to protect your homes. Regrettably, many public agencies severely limit public comment and rarely heed the words of a single citizen. Together, as the largest stakeholder group in the State, Pennsylvania homeowners can have a significant impact!

What are the biggest issues facing homeowners?
The threat to drinking water sources from fracking is a big concern, as well as the lack of adequate bonding requirements to protect future generations from the threat of polluted water sources from toxic chemicals leaching from abandoned wells.
The property tax is certainly a cause for a great concern. The cumulative effect of tax increases year-after-year by all of the taxing authorities (e.g., school, municipality, county) can be oppressive and confiscatory. Every mill of property tax carries with it the threat of a tax lien and confiscation. No tax should threaten your home!
A lack of a homestead exemption is an issue. In Pennsylvania, any creditor or litigant can try to take your home.
The inability of Pennsylvania citizens to put issues on a State ballot is a big issue.
Runaway Authorities performing in an arbitrary and capricious manner with no accountability to the homeowners they serve are not the norm; however, where they exist, they are an issue.
Any issue decreasing the value of your home or your quality of life is a big issue to UHoP.
