Thank you for your clarification.Yes
, it does.
If dues are not paid, the HOA has the power to trigger a foreclosure on the property. If the owner has a mortgage
, then technically the lender would have a "first right" at the auction, and the HOA would get anything left over, if anything. But, the HOA retains the right to sue the former owner then, still.
So a foreclosure really is a no win situation in many cases since the owner may not have the assets to pay any judgment and the HOA will be second to the lender in a foreclosure, but the HOA can still force the foreclosure if they want to.
