Customer Question
I was sent to...

I was sent to collection because the home owner association fees was not paid. One of the reason is I did not get the bill and they do not have the right address. subsequently, the collection is charging ten times of the amount owed.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state the association is in?

California

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

The filed a notice of intent for a lien

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I filed a dispute and the collection waived $400 then withdraw because I was waiting for the date to meet and confer with HOA

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.
