Portland, OR asked in Real Estate Law for Oregon

Q: My HOA is placing a large assessment on my home, and will not show me where my money was spent

HOA has never once had a meeting or vote, however, treasurer owns 13/20 homes in the HOA, and has been "voting" by himself, winning by majority. I am selling my home and told of an 9200 assessment due to depletion of funds and to pay off a loan they took out without notifying homeowners. They refuse to show any documentation proving payments made with the large sum of money in the HOA funds. I am being forced to pay this amount at closing of my home sale next week, however, never received any request in writing from the HOA.
