Right now, I pretty much like how the HOA is being run, but what is my recourse if future Boards get out of hand.The HOA's response is the following:
You can recall the Board, vote them out of office or as a last resort, even begin legal proceedings against the Board. Voting them out of office, or running against one or more of them would probably be the most effective. Remember, the Board serves at the will of the membership.There is a problem with their answer. They want to mandate each section of the neighborhood, but maintain the claim that each section will remain voluntary despite every homeowner being forced to pay their association money. Those homeowners who do not join into their association have been constantly denied access to their meetings and have zero voting rights, so if a Board gets out of hand, how does a homeowner who is not a member get to stop an out-of-hand board?
Some homeowners have tried to resolve this conflict with the HOA, but the HOA has only threatened legal action against those who would not blindly pay into their organization. By the HOA's logic, one would have to join the association to fight any injustice, but by doing so would make them liable to the corporation for things like fees and assessments.
Where are the checks and balances to this Board's abuse of power?
