    That sounds really frustrating. Have you checked your HOA bylaws? There might be a formal process for filing complaints or even escalating them. Sometimes boards need to be reminded that they are accountable to the homeowners. If the bylaws aren’t clear, you might want to consult with a lawyer who specializes in HOA issues.

    I’ll venture to offer some insights…

    If the CC&Rs explicitly state the specific number of homes/lots within the association, it would likely need a vote from the entire membership. This is because a single owner’s attempt to unilaterally alter the contractual terms would require approval from the broader community. If granted, an amendment to the CC&Rs would be essential, which would need a vote.

    As for dues, I think it’s a good idea not to reduce the amount just because it’s one household/lot now. The expenses remain fixed for the HOA. Combining the lots and then only charging the assessment for one essentially makes the HOA lose out on one homeowner payment, meaning everyone else will have to shoulder the potential increase as a result. The expenses for the HOA doesn’t change just because one owner wants to combine lots and pay only one set of dues.

    Best to get a lawyer.

    In addition to the suggestions above, you should also revamp your social media pages. Make sure they all align and look cohesive. Looks can go a long way. People are gonna want to engage more if they feel like the HOA is being managed properly, and that comes with good aesthetics as well.

    In addition to the meeting, consider exploring any dispute resolution mechanisms outlined in your HOA agreement. Some associations have internal procedures for handling conflicts that might be worth exploring before things escalate further.

    I’ve found that documenting everything and communicating in writing (emails, letters) helps create a paper trail. Has anyone else used this approach to resolve HOA disputes?

    We do have those but we still have trespassers. What could be wrong? We don’t understand how they keep coming in.

    Hey OP. Do you have an update on this? We have a similar problem but we’re a gated community unlike yours.

    This is a piece of advice I give out to everyone — ASK AN ATTORNEY. Always good to have legal advice from someone who actually knows the law.

    Pretty isolate case for cascascassie. Most of the HOAs I know (I live in a city with LOTS of them) hire management companies or HOA managers and they’re all doing great. Work is streamlined and efficient. Boards have a lot more time on their hands. Plus, the experience and expertise are unmatched. Best decision our HOA ever made tbh.

    Thanks for your input!

    Ikirutheowl, the main reason we are disbanding is because we don’t feel that the HOA is necessary anymore. Everyone here just wants to stop being in an HOA so we felt that it was time to disband.
