FAQs

We are providing these responses as part of our commitment to help educate Texans, including property owners and legislators. All of the questions presented are adapted from one or more real questions that we have received, and which we have typically rephrased to illustrate a general matter. We hope this information will help, both in understanding differing situations, and in encouraging and supporting owners to take action to improve our communities and our laws.

CAUTIONARY NOTE: If we sound cautious, it is because we have seen too many homeowners get hurt by associations. As we are not lawyers, we have consulted with David Kahne, an attorney licensed in Texas, who is also cautious because, among other reasons, some courts unduly protect associations at the expense of homeowners. Please see also the important DISCLAIMER at the bottom of this page.
