HOA can still foreclose on practically atone. Just keep up with mortgage payments.
After 90 days its difficut to bail you out.

I agree with the other posters -- in these situations, it's best to speak with an attorney. However, most likely, the answer is 'yes', they can still foreclose on the property.

If you do decide to sell and need a fast cash 'as is' buyer, then visit me at . We're investors with capital to buy houses now.

Did the spouse leave a living will assigning you as the" personal representative"
to the property should they pass on?

I also can recommend a great RE attorney, but a lien put on by an HOA is attached to the property and just because it's in a living trust, it doesn't immunize it from foreclosure proceedings. Timing of when the actual lien was placed can have a factor also. As always, laws differ from state to state.

Hi Medidox,

If payment is not made, most HOAs will try to foreclose on anyone (including a trust). Sometimes they will work with you to get it straightened out. Once you go 90 days past due, it gets more difficult, of course. Contact David Brittin, a real estate attorney, he can advise you on your situation. I can accompany you on your visit to see him if you like. I was the treasurer at my HOA so I have a basic understanding of how it works.
