more than 200 residents at Turnberry Reserve, recalling the November election
Residents in the
community have complained for years about misconduct by the
HOA. Residents say HOA dues has disappeared, there is no
paper trail for the finances, they've suffered from
exaggerated fines, and had liens places on their homes
without a change to defend themselves.
They also say residents were harassed by the management team
and residents' rights were being violated.
Each recalled board member now has to turn over any and all
records of the association to a new board, which was voted
in by 60 percent of the residents.
Resident Tony Santiago said he and his neighbors are ready
for the challenges to come as the new board kicks in.
“Everything that we fought for, we are getting it,” he said.
“Does that mean everything now is going to be awesome? It’s
impossible…there is a lot of work to be done.”
Residents of Turnberry and other subdivisions packed a Florida Legislature
delegation meeting last year, urging lawmakers to push for reform of HOA laws.
