You have a defense of payment (Accord and Satisfaction). The HOA will assert that you were late in payment and never paid until the law firm was engaged and you received the complaint. The ability to demonstrate the timing of your payment will be critical to your defense.
Hello. Always take a look at your written lease as that governs a lien Aunt agreement, and what each party can do.
