My husband received a lein notice from our condo association

Hi My husband received a lein notice from our condo association for 2 months of association, that we discussed with the association lady. The reason why we were holding payment, they never responded and no communication was sent to us prior to sending the notice to a lawyer. Is there a way to battle this notice without paying the lawyer fees they are tackling on top of it.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state the association is in?Customer: ILJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: We received a notice yesterday. But we were not aware that it was happening. When I spoke with her yesterday she claimed she made multiple attempts to collect, but the association hasn't spoken to us directly regarding the matter.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: We are willing to pay to two months. If we can get the condo to cover our deductible cost to our insurance for damage that was made in our unit. Due to buidling backup. The only reason why we didn't want to pay is that we felt it was the condo's damage not our own.

Florida HOA. Renting. If our bylaws talk about persons renting owner homes, does that prevent a business from renting a home for one of their employees and paying for it? If so, why? Does it matter that the bylaws talk specifically about "persons" renting a home?
