That is pretty high. It may be able to be remediated but it could cost more. I have had tests done for over 21 years and I've only had (1) higher than that. Most homes test out under 20 PiCL.

You need to research this yourself. Realtors are prohibited from giving opinions on neighborhoods because it violates Fair Housing laws and they can lose their licenses. There are websites you can visit, however, as a former realtor I advise you to do the following for best results:

Visit the local police departments in person. Ask them about crime, safety, which neighborhoods are better than others, etc. Police officers are not subject to Fair Housing laws. Explain that you want to move into the neighborhood otherwise they will suspect you want to rob homes or commit crimes.

Leave your contact information with the local elementary school (visit their office). Ask to have one of the parents on the Parent Teacher organization call you. You want to find out what living in the neighborhood is like and the quality of the local schools. As a guideline, top rated public schools always hold or increase the homes value in those neighborhoods. Homes in lower quality / poor school districts don't hold up their values.

Visit local parks / playgrounds and start a conversation with local residents.

Being delinquent on monthly HOA fees has nothing to do with the mortgage loan. HOA's can take legal action and foreclose on your home / condo the same way that mortgage lenders can. Bottom line is you owe the HOA money. If your wife hasn't paid it, why didn't you pay it? Whether you are married or separated, it makes no difference. One of you should have been paying the monthly fee + the mortgage loan.

You can also sell your home and pay off the HOA from your profits.
