Good morning. Yes, the HOA can and this happens all the time. Pursuant to the rules and regulations which you agreed to when moving into the home, you agreed and they are allowed to do this, to secure the money owed, if the dues are not paid. What you want to be aware of is that the HOA can also foreclose on the home if they wanted to and you would lose your legal interest in it. As such, if you are behind, you want to try and work something out with them to repay what is past due, to prevent this from happening.
