Q: in bankruptcy, I am heir to a condo that has arrears in hoa fees and they put a lien on the property. is that my debt?
how do I list this property on my schedules
A: If it is in your name already, you need to pay the liens to keep the condo. You list them as secured debt. If it is not in your name, but will be some day, you list it on the statement of financial affairs.
Adrienne Woods agrees with this answer
If you are listed on the deed to the property, the you will be liable for payment of the HOA arrears - assuming that you want to keep the property.
Good luck with your case!
