I am in the process of purchasing a foreclosed condominium in Kenner, LA.

Asked by Edward Leon, 72619 Mon Nov 25, 2013

However, there is over $11,000.00 owed in association dues, who is responsible for paying the past due amount? There is also a lien in place with this amount. Who has to pay the past due fees?

The Seller will be required to provide clear title and clear up any outstanding liens on the property. If you purchase title insurance it will help to protect your interests.

In most situations, the sellers are going to have to ensure that the lien is satisfied and the association dues are brought current. As the bank which foreclosed is the seller in this case, it will most likely be their responsibility.

The exception to this rule when you assume the fees in writing in the contract for purchase.
