Not sure if you received any answers, but with a new mortgage the additional debt and the new credit inquires as part of the loan process will lower your credit score. As time passes and payments are made on time your credit score will change and improve. ... more

Read your HOA bylaws and restrictions carefully. If they have the ability to fine you, they can potentially place a lien against your home and, after a certain amount of time, they may be able to foreclose on your property. You do not want to lose a home over a dispute with the HOA. If you cannot settle your dispute with the HOA board on your own, I would suggest talking to a lawyer to learn what options you have. ... more

Having a resource to help with HOA information and documents makes life easier. Recently, when selling a home in Ohio, Association Online provided me with all the HOA details for the listing, and then provided all the documents - by-laws, financial statements, covenants, etc. They made sure the package was complete, making my work easier. Their web site is well organized and very easy to use - . Call their team of experts – they are great to work with (970-226-1324). ... more

Here all the fellow agents are right. The homes are SOLD "AS IS" and there is no seller's disclosure regarding condition of the property. So you should have an agent exclusively representing you who is experienced in distressed properties. Both of you have to walk in with eyes wide open. Write down all the flaws in the home and consider those while submitting an offer. Hire very good and experienced inspector. Let me know if you need either one buyer agent or home inspector and I will be glad to help you. Feel free to call me at 864-634-8670 or contact me through Trulia. I am certified in representing in distressed property sale. ... more

Hi Pooh : ),

Yes the HOA can place a lean in your home but it's cost effective not to specially if the home is under a distress status. If you have reached a Foreclosure status do a big favor to yourself and do not allow yourself to be foreclose on, your bank will allow the property to be short sale halting the foreclosure process and saving them tons of money. There may be an incentive for you as well, call me I can help, 've done numerous short sales. Thank you.

Rick Stroud answered:
Hi Tiffany....sorry to hear you are facing a challenging situation. This isnt legal advise....but I would definitely consider discussing the situation with the Association (face to face if possible), they may not understand your current challenges and might be willing to work something out with you. And as Sheri said below, I would also talk to an attorney before committing to or taking any legal steps. If you dont have an attorney to turn to, I would highly recommend Kevin Brady with Guest and Brady, LLC. Kevin is extremely knowledgeable and specializes in real estate, so he should be able to give you some direction. Feel free to mention that I said for you to contact him. If he cant help, Im sure he would be able to give you a name of someone that could.

Dont hesitate to contact me if I can do anything to help you.

Hi, I actually listed a short sale once that had a tenant already living there. It was a mess for the Seller. He lost it in the end to foreclosure simply because it didn't show well with the tenants in there. Agents didn't want to show it either. So, lesson learned. Is the rental income worth losing the house to foreclosure. No!
If you need a rental or lease purchase, contact me with your criteria. We have a property management dept. in our office. Would be glad to help. Call me 864-201-4022 or email at

Nikki, The HOA can only put a lien on the property. That lien will be satisfied at some point when the house is transferred to a new owner after the foreclosure. I agree with consulting an attorney. That is always the best bet! Good luck. ... more

Answer to Mack's question.

This first started out as a simple dispute of past due common charges from past property manager.
I wrote a dispute to current property manger and he agreed with me and said $460.oo should be waived.
When he presented this to condo board they said they would only waive $248.00 and gave no reason for
their decision. The board is not directly involved in collecting fees and assessments and hva no direct involvement. After many letters back and forth. I got letter stating if I did not pay by Sept 30 the Board wanted me to turn over account to attorney. I relied on this because got no where with Board or property manger and felt attorney as an officer of the court he would inform board they had to waive total amount.
this amounts to theft But attorney did not contact me for 4 months fees and late charges keep growing
Attorney did not respond with customary demand letter befiore commencing lawsuit he commenced an
action in bankruptcy court (relief from stay but bankruptcy was discharged in 2008 this is 2011.

My feeling the property manger had the duty to the Board and all unit owners to contact attorney immediately after date passed and attorney should have acted within 30 days with demand letter before
commencing legal action not wait 4 months.
This should have been resolved in October 2010 without any legal action not with added charges.
