I was interested in one of the units in this complex but decided not to even bother seeing it because of all of these extra fees.
I am not 100% on the motivation behind the lawsuit. It seems reasonable, though, that the homeowners may have sought a change in the association board after the assessment was levied. (but that is mostly speculation on my part).
What I can say for sure is that those problems are very likely to disqualify the Bergenwood Commons complex from competitive (conforming or FHA) mortgages.
