Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Did your HOA take a judgment against you for this amount?
Wow. That's wild. Is there any explanation for the increase?
Under the judgement, the HOA would only be entitled to whatever it says in terms of money. Thus, any other expenses would not be covered by the judgment if the judgment doesn't allow for it.
So, if they're seeking money that is not part if the judgment, you should have the ability to question those assessments, request an accounting, challenge the charges, etc.
You should be able to consult the local court clerk's office and ask if anything has been filed -- if so, they can tell you.
Generally, the only way to stop foreclosure is to file a chapter 13 bankruptcy....which will stop any proceedings and give you an opportunity to possibly reduce the debt and pay it off through the plan.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Also, please take time to positively rate our conversation so I may receive credit for assisting. Thanks again!
