Texas HOA Manager is a legal compliance software that was developed specifically for Texas HOAs and it provides them with access to step-by-step guides for performing day-to-day management operations in compliance with Texas law, a library of forms that conform with Texas law (and that will be updated as laws change), and an innovative document generation module that allows users to create documents by answering a few straight-forward questions (think TurboTax or LegalZoom). Texas HOA Manager also provides online storage of records for HOAs, so that all of their records can be kept in a single central repository, and access to an online, searchable, version of Texas Homeowners Association Law.

Yes. Don’t let the term “HOA” confuse you. Texas HOA Manager is legal compliance software developed specifically for all types of association-governed real estate developments that are governed by Texas law, including subdivision developments, condominium developments, townhouse developments, garden-home developments, etc… The associations that govern such developments are generally referred to as “property owners’ associations” or “POAs” for short. The term “homeowners association” or “HOA” is commonly used to distinguish between POAs that govern residential real estate association-governed developments from commercial real estate association-governed developments, without distinguishing between POAs that govern condominium developments from subdivision developments or other types of planned unit developments.

No. Texas HOA Manager is a comprehensive legal compliance software solution designed to assist with the proper and efficient management of a Texas HOA in compliance with Texas law, whether it is self-managed by a volunteer Board of Directors, managed by an employed general manager, or managed by a third-party property management company or property manager.

We’re glad you asked. HOAs are regulated by state law, which differs significantly from one state to the next. Thus, the laws that govern Texas HOAs are different from those that govern HOAs in other states. HOA management software applications that currently exist are not state-specific. They are generic software applications that usually provides some accounting features, communication portals, message boards, and maybe even the ability to create your own template forms for automated document generation. What those software applications don’t do is tell you step-by-step how to call an annual meeting of members or to respond to a request for a resale certificate. They also don’t provide you forms to perform management operations that conform with Texas law. Texas HOA Manager does all that, and much, much more.

No. Although Texas HOA Manager was developed in consultation with Gregory S. Cagle, a Texas attorney and author of Texas Homeowners Association Law, Texas HOA Manager does not provide legal advice or perform legal services on behalf of HOAs. Texas HOA Manager does provide subscribers with the resources to learn the laws that regulate Texas HOAs and to manage their HOA in compliance with Texas law without having to become micro-lawyers. Such resources include access to an online searchable version of Texas Homeowners Association Law, a comprehensive library of forms that conform to Texas law, operation guides that provide step-by-step instructions for performing day-to-day management operations of a Texas HOA in compliance with Texas law, and an innovative document creation module that allows subscribers to create documents by selecting one of the available forms from the Form Library and answering a few straight forward questions. Imagine Turbo Tax or Legalzoom for Texas HOAs.
