Protecting Your Interests In Assessment Lien Disputes
Homeowner associations have monthly dues and assessments that each homeowner is expected to pay. These dues and assessments pay for the upkeep of common areas, improvements to facilities, special projects and other items. The rules for these dues and assessments, their issuance and collection are typically spelled out in the association’s covenants, conditions and restrictions (CC&Rs) or bylaws.
The association expects each homeowner to pay his or her dues and assessments according to the terms in the governing documents. Failure to do so can result in additional fees and interest, collection action or lawsuits. HOAs can even initiate foreclosure actions against homeowners to satisfy the amount owed to them. In many cases, the HOA will record an assessment lien against your property in the course of the collection process.
