Hi and welcome! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you. I am happy to help.

If you have filed an answer, you have right to present to the court about your side of the matter. You can also file counterclaims. You have the right to contest the amount they have piled on. You can argue for a reduced amount and agree to pay that amount. And you can argue that you have offered to pay this reasonable amount. You can do it when you respond. And then you can also ask the judge to require them to send you itemized bill or break down charges if they have not done so. As long as you filed an answer you have put it all in dispute. You may question the witnesses for the HOA on this issue and then dispute it. It also appears to be possible to ask for alternate resolution here.

Usually, if you want to withhold payments of special assessment, it is better to have a court order to allow you to do so because if the special assessment is separate from the suit, then the association can include your lack of payment of them as a reason to foreclose.

If you need clarification, or want to clarify your question, or have a follow up question, please let me know.

Thank you,

what kind of motion do I need to file with the court?

Hi Steve:

You would need to request "injunctive relief." Here is a link providing a detailed description of the process:

This gets rather complicated and it is always better if you can afford it, to have a local attorney help you with these type of cases.

If you need clarification, or have another follow up question, please let me know.

Can you file the injunction?

Hi Steve:

You need to find a local attorney to help you. This site does not create an attorney client relationship, nor is there attorney client privilege. We only provide helpful legal information to customer questions. If you want to find a local attorney, you can contact the bar association in your county and they most likely have a legal referral service to help you find a local attorney.

I hope your understand.

I am happy my responses have been helpful to you. If you have further questions, please let me know.

Thank you,
