Any local Realtor who is teamed-up with a local title company can get you that listing.

The county Clerk's office shows all filings- you need correct name of HOA to lookup. If you want copies of all the filings they charge per page. Note: the HOA also shows the units they filed against for late payment to not be confused with owners suing, construction defect, or trip and fall and so forth

Google the association name. IF it comes up it should have all current information.

you call the HOA and/or can check with the court. The court is online.

Most HOA litigation is available on-line via google/yahoo search etc...once you find out the HOA name.

Thu Mar 28, 2013 generally won't show current litigation. Everyone charges money to access this information. You could look on the Orange County Superior Court website and look both under Civil under $25000 and over. Type in the name of the HOA (enter it a couple variations) also the name of he Management company (they are often cross-filed). To actually read the pages of the flings you have to pay per page. Here is the link :

This may be cheaper than paying $300- $900 for a Management Company to verify if you just want to know before making your offer.

HOA litigation is common.

With many Americans up-side-down with their lenders and falling behind on their house payments, HOA's have begun to experience similar problems with many homeowners falling behind on HOA payments, too.

Many HOA bi-laws have clauses as to how to resolve these delinquent accounts that may include suing to recover the payments.

This is only one of many kinds of litigation that can occur. Earlier Rob Spinosa suggested
www. . This should work, but I think they will charge you a fee to find out. If you are working with a local real estate agent or loan officer, ask them to get you the information for you for free.

If not, call me at 949-370-1311 and I will research it. If you are looking to purchase a home using HUD financing, you need to find out this info as it could create a financing problem for purchasing in a community with litigation pending.

Good Luck,

Currently, they don't have a website...You have to see with the HOA management.

Hello Tracer Stevens,

Contact me and I can help you out. There is no website to check on litigation as it is filed through an attorney into the court system. You can call a Real Estate Attorney and ask them if there is such a thing.
You must call the manangement company for that complex..
There is a website to see if the HOA/Complex is FHA approved through the government.
Why did you want to know? Wanting to buy in a certain complex?
