Raising HOA dues for new pool

I purchased a home from a homebuilder/developer a couple of years ago. There were no plans for a swimming pool and sport court by the developer when I purchased. Now, the Homeowners association has voted to raise the dues and build a swimming pool and sport court. I have no desire for the new amenities and voted against the motion, but the motion passed. The dues will now double. Am I obligated to pay those additional dues now?

Re: Raising HOA dues for new pool

Unless there is some provision in the bylaws for an exemption for losing voters, you have to pay the new fees. Sorry. Or you could sell out and move. Sometimes there might be irregularities in the voting process. But then you would have to pay your attorney to attack that. Good Luck.
