Best Answer

An HOA can assess a special assessment to cover just about anything.

Read your governing documents to determine what options, limits and processes are involved in levying special assessments.

It's possible that unless every unit is due to receive a garage, only the units that will receive a garage should be involved in the special assessment.

Garages are often limited common elements and assessments can be limited in these cases to the beneficiaries of the limited common elements.

If a homeowner pays for roofing repairs or other services in a condominium due to shortage of funds should the association reimburse the homeowner?

The key phrase in your question is 'shortage of funds'. If the association borrows money from its owners to make repairs, then the owners and the association need a written agreement that details the repayment plan. A more common and more sound approach dictates that the association levies a special assessment against all owners to pay for repairs and other services. An association that operates with a 'shortage of funds' is not an association where units will be attractive to buyers.

Condominium assessments are income to the association. If there is a judgement against the association, owners who pay assessments may be liable to pay the judgement under a special assessment.

Can a neighborhood fire their HOA?

If the 'neighborhood' is composed of owners in the association, then owners can vote to remove a set of directors. Your governing documents document this process.
