Did you buy at the courhouse foreclosure auction?

If so get an attorney asap and work it out with the HOA. Otherwise the HOA may end up foreclosing on you and taking the property from you!

Although I think there is technically a limit on the back due HOA or Condo dues owed, I think there is some grey area when the property doesn't go back to the lender and an investor buys it at the courthouse.

Contact an attorney asap because I've seen quite a few sleazy HOA and Condo attorneys that will try to take advantage of you--even if it is not legal!

Interesting website that may have helpful info for you:

All the best,

Thank you very much. The courthouse auction is later this month, so I am good right now. The HOA does have a lien filed for back missed payments.

From what I have seen; the answer is simple, (and probably universal):
If the HOA filed a LIEN against the house, then it will have to be taken care of by the Foreclosure.
If they didn't, then it won't.

Good luck and may God bless

To my knowledge, they do not, but I am not an expert and cannot say with certainty. Your best bet is to ask a FL licensed real estate attorney. As an aside, the HOA dues do survive a bankruptcy in FL.
