If your HOA is foreclosing you need to find a solution quickly. Go to the next Board of Director's (BOD) Monthly meeting and bring your checkbook and plead with the BOD to work out a repayment plan and stop the HOA attorneys from foreclosing on your home.

Unfortunately you now you will probably have to pay $2k or more in legal fees, too.

Sorry you're in this situation. Here's a very helpful website about HOAs and Condos:

soniadiccico, if you do not pay the mortgage, property taxes or hoa fees any or all three can initiate foreclosure proceedings. Delinquent property taxes jump in front of the mortgage, so most lenders pay them and add this amount to money due to the lender. The HOA or condo association can file for a foreclosure as well. Seems more often than not the HOA or condo associations are not willing to accept less than the total amount of deliquent fees due. Many approved short sales are stopped due to the lack of flexibility by the respective HOA or condo associations.

Check with your attorney again. You might be able to file bankruptcy. Time is not on your side. Best to make some serious decisions quickly.

Best regards,

HOA fees are accounted for on the Settlement statement. If your sale is prior to your hearing you should be fine, if you sale is after your hearing, you will need to ask the judge for an extension.

Find another attorney, you will need representation.
