21 Turtle Creek Condos ---great value for the $$ – Have owned my condo since 2007. Love most of my neighbors. Very mixed crowd: lots of senior citizens, gays, and artsy types. Very dog friendly property. Management office is pretty responsive and accessible. We have a 24 hour concierge and (almost) 24 hour valet service.
The building has suffered some neglect over the years and is in need of major renovation. Repairs are currently (3/2010) underway, but it is very noisy and dusty. The Home Owners Assoc is trying to spruce up the appearance of the building and give it a more youthful look. The halls, elevators, heating/ air conditioning, windows, balconies, exterior paint and concierge desk are all slated to be redone.
I've lived at 21 for over 20 years - I'm moving. – I bought my home at 21 Turtle Creek in 1987 and have lived here since July, 1987.
I had some financial difficulties and the HOA refused to work out a repayment plan which would have taken less than one year to repay the money owed - $4,000.00, Instead they foreclosed upon me and ultimatley sold my home at auction for $15,300. I received $2,500. When this started, my mortgage balance was $24,000 and I owed the HOA $4,000 - on a home worth $120,000.
Before considering buying a home at 21 Turtle Creek, review the literature on abusive homeowners' associations.
Due to the lack of proper maintenance at 21, the homeowners are expecting to a $25,000 to $35.000 special assessment which will not be enough to fix the many major problems with this condominium.
I am being evicted. I can afford to make my payments, but I was no match for an HOA with aggressive attorneys who know how to run up the fines and attorney's fees to unmanageable amounts.
I would have preferred to stay in my home, in which I have lived for over 20 years, despite the problems, but the abusive Twenty-One Turtle Creek Homeowners' Association is throwing me out on the street.
