We receive a lot of questions regarding HOAs (also known as POAs, property owners associations), but these can be difficult to answer as there is an interplay of association bylaws, state laws, and case law. While it would be best to consult with an attorney for answers and advice specific to your association, there is also the HOA Hotline that might offer some assistance. We also have a research guide on property owners associations that can point you to sources of law for HOAs. We also link to pages that provide summaries of recent 2012 changes in HOA law.

We often refer folks to the Texas Residential Property Owners Protection Act (chapter 209 of the Property Code) for questions related to voting rights, ballots, meetings, association dues, access to records, foreclosures, and liens.
