Customer Question

I purchased my home in 2011 and it was never disclosed there is an HOA, now 5 years later they want to restart the HOA and want me to pay 5 years back dues, can I legally get out of it?
JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state the association is in?
Customer: Washington
JA: Has any paperwork been filed?
Customer: No, we are having the first meeting tonight, but they have sent out statements of what everyone owns for 5 years
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I don't think so

Good evening. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.

Did you have a title search when you closed?

Did the title commitment disclose the HOA?
