The Tropic Isles Homeowners Association (TIA) in the Tropic Isles subdivision in Corpus Christi, Texas is being accused of illegally collecting HOA dues. According to one of the owners Michael Cyrus, “the TIA ceased to have any authority over our property in 1981 and despite this fact they continue to illegally collect dues at closings without the legal authority to do so.” This statement is cited in his very comprehensive website “Tropic Isles Exposed”. The location is http://www.tropicislesexposed.com/Home_Page.html. What is worse according to Mike Cyrus is that “the TIA is now claiming to be able to change the dedicatory instruments anytime they want by simple vote of the board; the TIA Board has done so on several occasions since 1994 and these actions bypass the amendment provisions in the original Restrictions that are meant to protect the owners and their properties and the worst part is that these illegal documents adversely affect the salability of every property in the Tropic Isles subdivision.”
Corruption in homeowner association communities can only prevail when people continue to be apathetic about the abuse. Some people would rather withdraw into their homes and not do anything about it just to keep from getting into “trouble” with their homeowner or property owner association. Unfortunately, this type of behavior does not stop the abuse—it only causes it to escalate. What Mike Cyrus hopes to accomplish with http://www.tropicislesexposed.com is to let his neighbors know that they are not alone and that in coming together the owners might prevail.
Michael Cyrus is to be applauded for his pro-active actions in exposing the wrongs in his community and hopefully, he will soon be able to get his communities’ help in recapturing their community from the wrongs being committed by this association, that according to actual court documents, include “illegally changing the dedicatory instruments, putting a cloud on the title of every property owner and illegally demanding fees from the owners residing in the Tropic Isles subdivision.” The documents posted on his website really do speak for themselves.
