Asked by Karen Slider, 92507 Fri Apr 16, 2010

has assigned my account to a collection agency. Am I still responsible for the unpaid dues even though the condo went into foreclosure and was subsequently sold at auction?

I am the President of Condo Association in Cincinnati and a Real Estate Professional. 1 of our units just was purchased at auction following forclosure by the mortgage holding financial institution. We hired an attourny to file a lien against the unit for 2 years of unpaid HOA fees. Prior to sale of that condo by the bank to an end-user, all liens will need to be satisfied for the property to close. This action forces the bank to pay the amount due in accordance with the lien we filed. However, the bank may seek payment from its former owner, I would strickly advise seeking legal counsel for a full understanding of those procedures.

I would use the HOA pool and invite over my friends after Friday each night after 12 and raise the money to pay for the outstanding balance. You could call it a drip and dry party all donations go for a charitable cause.
The party goes on until the debt is payed

Most likely the bank will pay the past due HOA bill when the property sells. But they may get a judgement in case they have to settle on the amount.

It's possible that you are responsible for the past due HOA fees. You should contact an attorney to be sure and see what your options are.
