Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Good afternoon. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. If she now has the money and can cure and pay the past due HOA fees along with any additional costs, then she can contact the attorney, advise them of the same and make the payment. Now, if there is a court case pending and the HOA is trying to foreclose, then she needs to make sure when she contacts the attorney and pays, that they agree to dismiss the cause of action. This way, the case is closed out and the lis pendens will be released.
