Can a property management company that manages our HOA take

Can a property management company that manages our HOA take an $80 payment made to the HOA for Monthly Dues and apply it to a $235 Lien Initiation fee? fyi, I never received the Lien Initiation or the Notice of Default, which they are also charging me for. And, neither are listed as charges on any of my billing statements. I only learned of their existence 7 months later, when questioning unexplained increases to my bills; one of which was an increase of $155 to the balance due with no charge reflecting that amount. The explanation was that they applied my $80 payment to the $235 Lien Init, which leaves a balance of $155 and explains the ambiguous charge. Again, my $80 payment was clearly a payment for my monthly dues. Can they take money intended for their client and use it toward payment of attorney's fees that I didn't even know existed?

Good morning - First of all, thank you my

Good morning -First of all, thank you for receiving my inquiry.As a landlord, a constable served notice to me of a small claims suit by a tenant. I filed my answer with the court, and was instructed to wait for notification of a court date in order to present my defense.I did as instructed and waited. The next notification I received was a notice of default judgment in the plaintiff's favor because I did not appear in court.I contacted the court, told them I never received notification of a court date, and was told I had 21 days to file an appeal. I spoke with an attorney, and was told the judgment amount was too low to justify retaining counsel, but was advised how to write a request for a new court date. I did as advised, wrote the motion for a new court date, delivered it to the court.I was told at that point that the deadline for this type of motion was 14 days, not 21, and that I was 1 day late, but they would accept it. Apparently, my motion was denied, and again, I have not received notification from the court, simply a verbal statement from the plaintiff that the court told him of the denial.When I contacted the court to inquire about a denial, I was told the motion had indeed be denied, and in order to file an appeal, I must present an appeal bond. I have been unable to find anyone in San Antonio who writes this type of bond, and was informed by several bondsmen that I would not, but that the court would accept cash in 2x the judgment amount.When I contacted the court to verify this information, I was told, "There are people who can help you with this, and they are called lawyers." A supervisor then told me I could write 'it' down, fax 'it' in, and they would give 'it' to the judge, but cannot tell me what 'it' is.Given all of that, I am now 24 hours from passing the deadline to file an appeal, and need assistance in how to proceed.Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.Thank you -Miguel G. Recalde, IMG

Under FL Civil Law, when a defendant has failed to respond

Under FL Civil Law, when a defendant has failed to respond to Admissions, is the "term" used for Plaintiff's filing notice of same "Default" or something else? This would be done as a prelude to a Motion to Compel that is imminent, but the notice will be filed first to get it on the record and put the defendants on formal notice. Just want to confirm the terminology.

Legal beacon) - If an IA defaults, does

For Richard (legal beacon)Hello - If an IA defaults, does the letter give you 30 days to resolve the issue? Also, can you appeal for 30 days extra. I guess my question is, can they immediately levy or do they have to send a letter first.

My atorney withdrew 3/4 the way through the case, which comes to trial Feb 14. The judge gave me 14 days to retain new counsel, but I could not afford the retainer. The 1 days have now run out, and and I am note sure what to do. Suggestions ?My attorney indicated that the plaintiff had no case beyond his fiction. I am in the midst of closing financing which will allow me to pay. But all I have now is equity in my company which is valued at $14 million.
