Private road maintained by residents who contributed $200 per annul to maintain gravel road and country bridge, county paved road, replaced bridge. Shortly, improvements new residents restarted the HOA, raised the dues and collected funds doing nothing and I mean NOTHING ! Bridge was or became defective NO attention by NEW HOA, Harvey flooding causing damage to several homes. HOA quickly engaged a management company to wash their hands of any responsibility. The levy always controlled excess water including previous hurricanes as the former bridge was inspected for integrity by the early residents. The current HOA does nothing but collect dues and refuses to account for expenditures as there are none!! They pursue liens with no notice and harass the early residents for dues with no accountability, many residents are retired and just sheep avoiding any conflict. The HOA does what they want, when they want to improve their property values only...
The HOA consists of new bees that form a social click, Just what recourse do we have ?
First, read the HOA declaration and the bylaws if there are any. Take copies of those documents and go see a real estate attorney. This is, unfortunately, not an unusual problem. There is a solution.
You may be able to have an election and get rid of the current board.
