My wife and I purchased a house on January 27 2012. We and the seller signed an affidavit stating that there were no outstanding HOA dues due. We received a letter in April stating that we owed money to the HOA dating back to 2010. I called the HOA and explained the situation and asked what we owed since we moved in. We paid what was owed for the 2012 years plus a transfer fee. I thought this was enough, however, we just received a letter suing us for the balance on the account. We are first time home buyers and did not know of or provided with a a certificate of HOA fees from an escrow company. I hear that one of these MUST be provided at the time of signing if the house resides in an HOA. If there were outstanding fees, how were they able to sell the house? Why did our title company, and both real estate companies not know of unpaid fees? Why was it stated on the affidavit that there was a homeowners association, but the line that asked "the name of the HOA" was blank?
