• Collecting Unpaid HOA Assessments

    HOA Law - Collecting AssessmentsQuestion: I serve as a board member for my homeowner’s association (HOA). Several property owners in my HOA haven’t paid their annual HOA assessments. We are preparing to file a lien on their property. The HOA really needs the assessments to pay our bills, but we don’t want to go through the trouble of foreclosing on the property. What can we do?

    One of the biggest challenges that a home or property owner’s association will face is collecting unpaid HOA assessments. Non- payment by property owners can wreak havoc on an HOA’s budget. While liens and foreclosures are tools used by associations to battle against unpaid assessments, those battles can last for long periods of time and cost thousands of dollars, which can wreak even more havoc on an HOA’s budget.

    If you find your association in this situation, don’t let the HOA’s budget remain frozen until you can foreclose on unpaid assessments. The earlier you act, the more likely it is that the matter can be resolved in a cost effective way, so it is important to seek legal assistance early on.
