Customer Question

Been a home owner in hertage lakes, frisco Texas for 15 years. We were required to belong to a tennis club down the street ( according to our HOA). We have never step foot in the tennis club and would and really do not feel we should pay the dues to belong. What are our options, if any?

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Unfortunately, when people buy in an HOA they sign on to conform and abide by the HOA rules. If you bought in a Tennis club HOA area, then they can make you pay for membership, just like golf courses make people who buy in their HOA belong to the golf club, whether they golf or not. So, because you bought in that HOA, if the bylaws say you must be a member, then you are legally bound to those bylaws and if you want out, you need to sell to move.
