The HOA was supposed to have a mediation settlement in May, and if they can't reach a settlement there is a trial scheduled for June or July. In the meantime you can't get financing for Arbor Roses, until this gets resolved. Arbor Station just recently went through the same thing, and each home owner had to pay a $4,400 special assessment.
You are wise to ask about all this because I have seen people get caught in these lawsuits and end up paying $0 up to $33,000 per household!! Ouch. Doing your homework ahead is critical, not only of the builder but also of how the HOA handles these types of things.
It is difficult to get loans when active suits are pending though depending on the buyers financial situation, there may be one who would give the loan. A lot of it depends where the suit is the the process. It is imperative that the buyer know the worst case scenario and be OK with it before they proceed.
Feel free to call/email and pick my brain about this. Most of the situations have already been fixed but there are a few lingering ones in Hillsboro.
