Last year, I took over responsibility of managing the HOA. Our HOA is extremely small. The entire association is only 4 connected townhomes. Anyway, one of the unit owners is now over 6 months due. I am researching what I need to file in order to start the lien process. I think I will need to file an "Intent to Lien" form with the Clerk and Recorder for my county. I am able to find a good amount of information about the lien process, but it is hard to find info specific to Colorado. Just wondering if anyone out there might be able to point me in the right direction to start. Is there a Intent to Lien form that I can get from the Clerk and Recorder, or is it just something I print up in Word?
Any info is appreciated. Thanks
@Charles Fella I managed several HOAs for many years. You don't file an "intent to lien" - you just file the lien (yes, with the County Clerk's office). However, you must make sure that prior to doing this you have followed the various bylaws & covenants for your organization regarding proper billing and notification of past due assessments. Once they pay then you must file a notice that the lien has been lifted (release). The costs for these should be rolled into the amounts you are charging the property owner - in our county it is $13 per page - no reason for the HOA to bear the cost. A lien should also be notarized. If you message me I can send you a sample lien.
Thanks. I sent you a message
@Teri S. hey, i sent you a message a few days ago....just wondering if you can send over the sample lien. Thanks
Hey @Charles Fella the system won't allow me to send it unless we are colleagues. Just sent you a colleague request.
sorry for the delay Teri. I just accepted it. Would you happen to have a sample of a super lien? I think that is what I will need to file.
