A: Association law can be very complex because there are statutory elements and contractual elements to the analysis. If Texas law does not provide you with a non-waivable statutory right to have contact information of other owners then you are going to rely on what the contract says. Many times associations do not want an obligation to disclose information like that because it can lead to insurrection. The drafting lawyers were probably careful to protect this type of information. That does not usually mean, however, that you can't go see the other owners in person or discover the information yourself by other means.
