Lawmakers agreed to take a closer look at HOAs after hundreds of residents across the state said the associations “scared them out of money.”

“My biggest concern is that the HOA[s] don’t respect the voice of the homeowners,” said Sherman Malveuax, a Houston homeowner who recently started a petition to oust the board of his Wood Meadow II neighborhood.

HOAs can regulate everything from the color of a home to aspects of its landscaping.
