Hoa in Texas?

If an individual builds a house in Texas on empty land or build a house in a newly built neighborhood and the hoa decides to buy land to build houses or buy the houses already built from the homeowners that built those houses

Would an individual be forced to sell to hoa or be forced out by the hoa?

    They can never add your property to an HOA without your consent...period.

    No, they cannot be forced to sell or be forced out by HOA. Not at all how it works. They also cannot be forced to join the HOA.

    No, an HOA can't force you to sell your home. They can force you to abide by the rules of the HOA assuming the HOA existed when you bought the place.

      I’m talking about if you build before hoa exist

    Possibly yes when buying in a newly developed neighborhood, and you would know because it would be a covenant of the deed. But otherwise, no to both questions.

    no. Government bodies might have right of eminent domain, but not hoa's.

    No. But if you violate the HOA's rules & regs, you can be fined and if you don't pay the fine, you can then be forced out, by a lien on the house and then foreclosure.

    an HOA cannot just decide to buy land you own....you have to agree to sell it>

    YES AN HOA CAN BE INVOLVED IF YOU ARE BUILDING ON EMPTY LAND, but they would have already had to have formed the HOA listing the empty lots that were part of the HOA

    YOU DO NOT HAVE TO FOLLOW HOA RULES BECAUSE YOU WILL NOT BE IN THE HOA.

    Your question makes absolutely no sense. An HOA is an organization in a neighborhood. If someone builds a home on empty land, there is no HOA involved.

    If they build in a neighborhood, how would an HOA decide to buy land to build houses???? That makes no sense at all.

    A developer buys land and parcels it out to builders. The HOA manages the public areas and sets the rules for the home owners. They do not buy land and thye do not build houses.
