Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Obviously, the taxes are going to have to be paid by someone or the property will be sold for the taxes at a tax sale........so you should keep that in mind......because if that were to occur, the tax sale buyer would take ownership much cheaper and who knows what you may get.
The other alternative would be to try and market the property and offer the payment of taxes as an option to pay by the HOA or by the purchaser based on the purchase price.
But, is it certainly legal for the HOA to pay the taxes on property that it owns. However, it may be better to hold off and use that as a bargaining chip instead of paying them straight away.
