If this was a known assessment by the HOA and the seller failed to disclose it, then this is a material breach of the contract because the seller has a legal duty to disclose this. This would give you the right to sue the seller for breach of contract based on misrepresentation and fraud for the cost of the special assessment or for a reduction in the sales price to compensate you for it if the closing hasn't occurred yet.
