A: HOA is within their right to foreclose. The only way to avoid foreclosure is to bring the account current all at once or file a chapter 13 bankruptcy to enter a payment plan to catch up. You will need to have a consultation with an attorney. (Note: withholding HOA payment is not the proper remedy for issues with the HOA)
