Hello. My name is***** will be happy to answer your question.
I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.

Unfortunately, if the bylaws require 100% approval, the the condo complex cannot be sold without such 100% approval, since the bylaws are created to protect the interest of all the condo owners.

I am very sorry to provide you with this bad news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide customers with correct answers, even when answer is not favorable to the customer.

I wish you the best of luck and God bless you!

Is it possible that a Condo Associations bylaws in Texas do not cover the topic of a sale? And, if the bylaws do not stipulate to the situation of a sale, then what percentage
of the owners would be required for the sale to go through?

Thank you for your follow up.

Generally, the bylaws would cover the topic of the sale and if they do not, then it would be determined by the court as to what would be appropriate percentage of votes to approve a sale.

I wish you the best of luck!
