I sort of assumed you were talking about removing a member in the development period. I believe our Limited Liability Company Operating Agreement does have some provision for that. Once you've built and sold the houses, under the legal structure most US communities have used, I think you are stuck. You cannot force someone to sell their property and leave the community. Certainly there are non-legal ways of addressing this issue, but spending a lot of time thinking them up ahead of time seems like a waste of time. Years and years ago I bought a house with 4 other people in Oakland, California. We spent hours on drafting a legal agreement, and often we would go off some long long tangent like "well, if this happened, and then one of us refused to do this, and then we wanted to do that", and then someone would say "Hold it - it's turning into another 'asshole' clause" - meaning we trusted each other not to act like complete creeps, and we didn't need to write something down for each possible type of creepiness one might assume. Hence the preventative ideas of self-selection, good communication, group-building, etc. Denise Meier Two Acre Wood Sebastopol, Sonoma County Northern California
