Foreclosure for Unpaid Condominium Fees
If you do not pay your condominium fees, in many states the condo association has a priority lien on your home, meaning that it can foreclose on your unit to collect the amount due. Such a lien can also complicate your ability to obtain a loan modification from your mortgage lender, unless you first get caught up on your condo fees. Other times the condo association may just sue you in court for the fees.
Communicate with the condo association’s trustees or property manager if you cannot pay your condominium fees. Let them know the reason and see what kind of payment plan you can work out. As the other owners are your neighbors, they may be willing to work out an agreement that helps you through difficult times.
