During the 2021 legislative session, REALTORS® are advocating for several issues to protect homeowners, including legislation that seeks to bring balance to homeowners associations.

What’s the issue?

HOAs exist to enhance neighborhoods and increase property values. However, HOAs are increasingly taking on functions that local governments traditionally provide.

The Texas Legislature has addressed HOA issues a number of times over the last 20 years, yet property owners and property buyers still voice concerns over actions taken by HOAs.

The Texas REALTORS® position

Texas REALTORS® supports legislation that would ensure HOA operations are transparent, resident-friendly, and provide an appropriate balance between private property rights and agreed-upon community standards.
