I am sorry, but not really. There is no way to force individuals to form an HOA, and no government agency on a state level exists in Texas to "take control" of non-functional HOAs. So there is no way to force an HOA, and no one to really hold "at fault."
Now, if you wish to split from the HOA, you'd have to file a lawsuit in Court, and show the Court that there has been a significant change in the neighborhood that warrants voiding/modifying the covenants of the deed that bind the property to the HOA. However, the HOA being non-functional does not fall under this prerequisite, so the argument would be very weak.
As such, I am afraid that there is little that can be done here. I am sorry.
Please note: If I tell you simply what you wish to hear, this would be unfair to you. I need to be honest with you and sometimes this means providing information that is not optimal. Negative ratings are reserved for experts who are rude or for erroneous information. Please rate me on the quality of my information; do not punish me for my honesty.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.
