Four year residual statute of limitations applies (Civ. Prac. Pro. 16.051). However, if the association has a statutory lien on your property, then it could foreclose. Apparently, no such lien exists, or you would have been foreclosed years ago.

 

Disputing the debt is the thing to do. Apparently, you've done that, so nothing to do now but wait.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
