Additional documents showing proof of knowledge (in Folders K1 - K5)
Knowledge can be proved in a number of ways. At a minimum, those who claim to act on behalf of an incorporated association which owns real property, such as a lake, are bound by the terms of the corporation's charter and the terms of the corporation's deed which are found in Folder B. They are also bound by the language in bona fide documents created by the corporation before any alleged fraud occurred, such as the pre-1981 Annual Reports filed with the Illinois Secretary of State.
Knowledge can also be proved by the effort expended to create and record false documents contrary to what is commonly known by honest people. No adult of normal intelligence, for example, can believe that they can transfer property rights to themselves by merely signing and recording a document, as was done with a fraudulent 1981 document. No real estate agent or other adult of normal intelligence can believe that they can solicit signatures to a false document and purportedly transfer property rights to the signing parties when neither they nor the signing parties held a property interest in the property, as was done with the fraudulent 1981 document.
When a person disagrees with a court opinion which holds, inter alia, that a mere ownership of an easement right does not obligate the easement owner to pay money to the owner of the easement property, no adult of normal intelligence can believe that they can nullify a court opinion by recording a document in conflict with the court's holding while giving a retroactive effective date to the recorded document to pre-date the court opinion. This is exactly what was done in 1986 when one person recorded a document as a bogus bylaw with false 1983 effective date to purportedly nullify the 1984 Lakeland decision to their actions. No attorney of at least normal intelligence, such as those from the KSM law firm, can disregard what a senior member of the firm has expressly known about the unanimous consent requirement for creating a homeowners' association, which is consistent with the Lakeland holding, and believe that a homeowners' association can be created with a 2/3rds majority vote.
Knowledge can also be proved, even in the absence of taking action to record particular documents, by the creation and distribution of false documents. Documents, such as "new homeowner" letters aka "welcome" letters, are false and known to be false when they are created with representations of facts which are contrary to the terms of a corporation's deed and the terms of its charter.
Particular knowledge that a corporation that owns easement property is not a homeowners' association can be shown the fact that persons claiming to be corporate officers repeatedly threatened to file liens against nonpaying easement owners over a number of years, and even sometimes misrepresented in their mailed newsletters that they did so or were in the process of doing so, but never filed even a single lien against any nonpaying Loch Lomond property owner. Bona fide creditors who claim that "several hundred thousand dollars" or other high amounts are owed to them do not refrain from using the legal system established for collecting debts for over two decades. The particular knowledge held by those who have held themselves out as LLPOA officers and directors can be shown by the fact that consistently refrained from filing liens year after year but threatened to do so. Their knowledge that they cannot foreclose on houses owned by nonpaying easement owners can be shown by the fact that they hired an attorney to draft proposed bylaws which, with the purported approval of a percentage of Loch Lomond property owners and others who are not Loch Lomond property owners, allowing them to file liens and foreclose on such properties.
The particular knowledge held by persons who have held themselves out as LLPOA officers and directors can be shown with the LLPOA's charter and deed plus the documents in the following folders. The particular knowledge held by persons that they hired in the name of the LLPOA can be shown by the documents that they received and their subsequent actions. In addition, the identities of those who expressly acknowledged knowing, on page 2 of the 1980 document, can be found from the signatures on that document. Some of the signing partie are real estate agents and/or persons who subsequently held themselves out as LLPOA officers and directors when the false representations were made that the LLPOA was organized or formed to maintain the lake.
