Does it have to be stated in the CC&R that HOA dues may be pursued as a personal obligation for them to sue?

Hi, thank you for the responses. The condo did already foreclose in OCT 2009, they recorded and updated 30 year old CC&R's in Nov orf 2009 where it now states it is a persoanl obligation. I never did receive a copy since I did not purchase this condo. My ex-fiance did, he put me on title without my knowledge so the deed of trust only has his signature.

In California, when you buy a property in an HOA, you will sign a contract with them as part of the Documents.

The HOA's know what they are doing; they will not be denied.
They will file a Lien and they will go after the individual if they go thru Foreclosure.

That is a legal question and not a real estate agent opinion. I would contact an attorney in your jurisdiction that specializes in real estate if you want a reliable answer. Part of the answer is in the CC&R, while part may be found in state laws and cases.
