Deed restrictions

3 posts in this topic

Our POA has had the same deed since 1974. The property owners just received a proposal for new deed restrictions. 2 board members and a committee made the changes, presented to lawyer and then mailed out for us to vote. They did an all or nothing vote. At a meeting, the board admitted that as a while they did not read the proposal prior to being sent out. A lot of the proposals are vague. Also we were told that they were changed because of complainers in the neighborhood and they HAD to present them to us. Now we are being told that they had to do it this way because of Robert's Rule. I live in Texas, is this correct? The board as a whole does not review deed restriction proposals prior to presenting as a vote?

thank you- angela bandy

Nothing in Robert's Rules prevents the board from reviewing the proposal. The real question is what your rules provide.

So they're claiming that Robert's Rules requires that proposals for deed restrictions be vague, and be mailed out to members after review by 2 board members (and no more), a committee, and a lawyer?  Certainly Robert's says no such thing.  Ask them for the precise provision requiring such actions.
