Special Assessment for Roadwork Wasn’t Deceptive
Facts: A homeowners association used funds from a special assessment to complete roadwork in a subdivision of the planned community. Each homeowner was asked to pay $7,500. One of the homeowners paid his portion on time but later sued the association, seeking to recoup that amount and alleging that, among several other illegal activities, the association had engaged in fraud by requiring payment of the assessment. A trial court ruled in favor of the association. The homeowner appealed.
