Back ground – the original developer installed a base of blacktop while building our association. Since that time the original developer went bankrupt. We have a new developer and he has completed a section of newly built condos.

In January we purchased a condominium at a foreclosure sale

In January we purchased a condominium at a foreclosure sale in California, and subsequently recorded the Trustees Deed upon Sale in our names. In doing our due diligence prior to the sale, we had found that the prior owner had substantial delinquent HOA dues, and that the Association had filed a lien back in July. The first mortgage was foreclosed when we were high bidders, and we subsequently recorded the Trustees Deed upon Sale. My understanding is that since California is not a "super lien" state, The HOA lien as well as the small second mortgage were cleared from title, and the only recourse for the HOA to recover the debt would be to go after the prior owner.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And has any paperwork been filed?Customer: CaliforniaJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: what kind of paperwork?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: we think the HOA is under the impression that we are responsible for almost five years of past dues.Our understanding is that we owe from the day we took title only
