Can a condo association put a lien on my unit for not having to pay for another set of special assessment fee that they said that we have to pay? I do make my monthly condo fee and one set of special assessment on time. I just cannot afford to pay for another set of assesment. Help!

A question that might be of general interest to many condominium unit owners arose during a March 2013 post: Can a lien be put on your property in secret? Can a lien be put on your property without documented notification; which might be 1) being served with a summons to court 2) receiving a certified letter or some other form of communication requiring official receipt. Under the law and under normal practice can an entity put a lien on your condominium unit without telling you? Opinions and comments on past experience would be interesting to this forum.

I am trying to purchase a condo in Fort Myers Florida , in a certain complex. The president keeps buying these cheap units up. He is using his power to give himself reduction in past hoa dues . He buys thens rents them out or flips them . Is this legal? He won't give me any reductions .

My condo is in Florida. It is now under new management. The unit owners have received a limited proxy to sign to approve new amendments that are necessary to provide the Association to approve sale transactions of our units. One of the new requirements is that the Association will require the prospective purchaser to pre-pay up to one year's worth of assessments which shall be held, interest-free, by the Association and applied to the owner's assessments as they become due and payable. How will they know in the future how many assessments they will need, and therefore, need to charge. Is this a new law?

Is it common practice to charge HOA fees according to the size of your unit or should all units pay the same? We all use the same common property.

Do special assessments have to be for a specific common area maintenance project? Our board charged home owners with a $1900 special assessment because 50% of the units were not paying their monthly dues. I have refused to pay this assessment and now I am being sent collection letters stating that they will place a lien on my property. I have requested to see the minutes time and time again to determine the purpose of the assessment but have been ignored. What are my rights?

Are the condo board's obligated to present an annual budget to the HOA members at the annual meeting? Does it have to be approved by the members? I can't ever recall one being presented to us, due to the fact that our President always says "the day to day decisions for operating the HOA, is up to the boards". And our by-laws are really vague on a lot of things. It doesn't spell out the term length for our officers, where as the other associations within our development does.
