My name is ***** ***** Roberson. I live in Snellville, GA.

Customer Question
My name is ***** *****...
My name is ***** ***** Roberson. I live in Snellville, GA. My HOA was administratively dissolved. The secretary of state said it was dissolved in Dec. 2015. However, we are still continuing to receive invoices for HOA fees. The invoice stated that we would be charged 18% per year or 1.5% monthly if we are late. Legally can they collect dues if it has been dissolved.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Yes, the HOA has not met or voted for new officers since 2013. The last HOA management stole the money and never paid the dues to the state. If the HOA is dissolved are they legally allowed to conduct business and collect fees.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Real Estate Lawyers generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

First it is important to understand that if an association fails to file an annual report for xyz years, GA will administratively dissolve the corporation. However, dissolving the corporation does not dissolve the association. It merely removes the advantages that being incorporated offers. To fully dissolve an association its CC&Rs need to be amended stating the same. It also normally requires the sale of all common areas. If your deed restrictions specify that members will pay assessments, then members are still obliged to pay those even under an administrative dissolution. Further, this is easy to fix for the association. It simply completes the reinstatement form and pay the past due fees. The corporation will be reinstated back to the date it was administratively dissolved, as if the dissolution never happened. So, you cannot risk not paying dues under these circumstance. I would suggest that you get a copy of the CC&Rs so that you know that the association is always playing by the rules.

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.
