Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy litigation attorney here to assist you.
Yes, you have to pay the pre-petition and post-petition dues through the date the property was sold at foreclosure. Because you're in a 13, you must pay this debt back.
This obligation is a result of the amendments to 11 USC 523(a)16. This section excepts from discharge "any debt for a fee or assessment that becomes due and payable after the order for relief to a membership association with respect to the debtor's interest in a unit that has condominium ownership, in a share of a cooperative corporation, or a lot in a homeowners association, for as long as the debtor or the trustee has a legal, equitable, or possessory ownership interest in such unit, such corporation, or such lot, but nothing in this paragraph shall except from discharge the debt of a debtor for a membership association fee or assessment for a period arising before entry of the order for relief in a pending or subsequent bankruptcy case . . . .
