Was there a special assessment in place prior to your purchase of the condo?
Then it seems like there was no special assessment for the lawsuit that the Seller knew of at the time to have had to disclose. It looks like the special assessment is being voted on now.
That being said, you would be liable for this new special assessment unless you can prove that the seller failed to disclose something that they should have. In that case, you would technically still be on the hook for the special assessment, but you would have a cause of action against the seller for failing to disclose it.
I hope this helps. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Thank you.
If you believe that the Seller knew, then you can always sue them.
Is there anything else I can help you with?
