A: You are writing from Wyoming, and this is the Utah board, so we can only answer questions regarding property in Utah. Owning property in a HOA is a gamble as you get the benefit of controlling what happens in your HOA according to the rules, but if you ever cross the rules, you may have problems of your own.

If you fail to pay something on time, the HOA can bill you. If you don't pay the bill, the HOA usually has the right under the rules to file a lien on your property. This lien will affect your ability to sell or mortgage the property until it is paid off.
