I think they can. Worse yet, if I am not mistaken their foreclosure is a judicial foreclosure, unlike the trustee foreclosure, the HOA foreclosure can sue you after the fact for any damages or losses. The can get a judgement, garnish your bank accounts.

I used to work at BofA and one of my jobs was to be a go between between the loss mitigation dept and the customers who were losing their homes. So I have seem about everything.

My guess is that the property value has come up and the bank and the HOA feel like they can kick you to the curb and get their money.

If they HOA forecloses and they end up losing money they can come after you for the loss, the bank will have to take the loss as they will be foreclosing based on the Trust Deed.

So, If your home is worth enough to pay everyone off and have some money left over, you want to file chapter 13 and stop the foreclosures and sell the home. On the other hand if you are upside down.

You basically need an attorney.

Feel free to call my office and review your situation as it is a complicated one.714-968-2500

Judi Monday, CRS answered:
Sometimes agents tailor their comps to the size of the home so rather that showing everything in your area they will show the homes that are true comps in terms of square footage. An appraiser will not take every comp in an area but will use strict guidelines that include size of the home, amount of land etc...that may be what this agent was doing. ... more

Prices are increasing due to limited supply. Many of the REOs and short sales are being sold off and clearing up the market for future price gains.

You won't believe this, the lenders have a "built in" rebate of $6000 on 99% of the reverses in the market - if they are charging on the front, that is just additional fee - but you do have to pay for the appraisal upfront.

Good Luck, and don't use a reverse if the senior is going to leave the house to their heirs, the heirs will have to pay in full (the amount of the reverse plus all fees and deferred interest payments over the term of the loan) upon disposition.

Larry Hansen answered:
Hi Tmtja,

This home does require and include a club "Social" membership at a monthly cost of $217.00 (which is in addition to monthly HOA dues of $695.00) however this does not include a golf membership. Homeowners are not "required" to get a golf membership to the Desert Horizons CC. However, the club is offering a nice trial membership called the "Peview Membership" for a year to give homeowners a chance to try it out. The cost of the Preview Membership is a one-time payment of $9,000 and no monthly payments. After one year, if you want to become a full member the cost is $25,000, less a $5,000 credit from the transfer fee that can be applied making the net cost $20,000. If you would like to preview this home, or any other homes, I would be happy to assist you. Thanks.
