HOA fees lien search?

1 Reply

When buying a foreclosed property from an auction are you responsible for the past HOA fees that weren’t paid ? If this is the case how can someone find out how much HOA fees have not been paid? Is this public record? I tried to call the condo and no one picks up and I emailed the condo board and they told they could not help me with the issue. L

If the lien has been recorded, it will be public record.

If the HOA has a property manager, they *might* divulge the back amounts, but technically they aren't supposed to discuss an account with anybody but the homeowner.

So if it's not filed, you may not get to find out.
