Hello,

I am the JustAnswer expert that will be helping you today. I am a lawyer with 25 years experience. Although I am not your attorney, I hope that I can give you helpful legal information.

Typically a condo owner would not have personal liability related to the bankruptcy of the Condominium Association. However the value of your condo may unfortunately reflect a decrease in value as a result of the bankruptcy

Please explain the use of the word "typically" as I fear that may lead to my worst fear that they will come after personal assets.
Expert:  Ellen replied 6 years ago.
I use the word typically because I have not examined your condo documents and therefore cannot give you an unqualified answer. However that said, I have never seen a condominium association where the condominium unit owners were personally liable in a bankruptcy of the Association. It would be extremely unusual
