Q: Hoa raising fee 4th time for special assessment letter Saying I owe half of $600/by 11/20. That's 13 days!! Help PLEASE!
I just got a letter saying new special assessment is over $600 and I owe half by 11/20 and the rest by 12/20. That's only 13 days to come up with money that I have no way of coming up with. I'm STILL paying on the last assessment. This can't be legal please help!
Sorry for your situation but it is most likely perfectly Legal assuming the HOA is following the governing documents correctly. No way to say for certain without first reading the HOA governing documents which can’t be done here on Line.
A: There is nothing illegal about it if your governing docs allow for special assessments. This is what you deal with living in an HOA. Best bet id if you cannot afford to live there to sell the house and go somewhere with fixed costs; but those are rarely fixed costs either as things break.
