Yes the HOA is responsible. They cannot avoid liability for payment for something that was their liability under the bylaws just because they changed management. If the board refuses to authorize payment, you have the right to sue the HOA board and management company in small claims court for payment and also the costs you have incurred in having to take them to court to pursue money you were entitled to. You do not have to issue a demand letter, you need to file a request to the board and then if they deny payment you just file your suit and serve the HOA.
