It doesn't seem fair. You have a right to examine the minutes and votes - check the bylaws for the rules on this. You could challenge this, but if everything was done right, I doubt you will win. This is similar for the HOAs imposition of transfer fees when properties are sold. They used to not exist, but now they do. Sorry.
