I would not get into the scenario that you are describing. Let's say for example that the building is 50% owner occupied and 50% rental. In this situation the owner of the rental units (likely the developer), will be responsible for paying the association dues on those units. While he will likely be legally obligated to do so, the other owners (like you) will have no way of enforcing these payments. In short, what are you going to do when you find out that the developer has not been paying his share of the assessments and the association has no money?
You could try taking legal action, but that costs money (which you already don't have). Even if you did successfully sue the developer, there is little chance you would collect since most developers form a LLC (limited liability corporation), which is probably already bankrupt.
There is plenty of inventory of existing condos with good associations. Buy one of those.
