There is a clause in your contract regarding assessments on pg 3 of 10. Look to see if you checked line 144 or 146.
If you go through with your closing the assessments will be added to your tax bill each year. This will be approximately a $700 - $900 per year depending on lot size and if water and sewer assessments have been billed. Check with http://www.capeims.capecoral.net to see this properties total bill due or have your agent help you.

The homeowner should be responsible for the assessment partially I would think. The seller was considerate to at least let you know. They did not have to as the fees are not due until 2014.
