If you would please provide more information about the situation I will try to assist you. What state are you in, and what is the purpose of the "land association"?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
The land is in Walsenburg , Colorado they call it Turkey Ridge Land Owner Association , what I heard is to maintain the road going to the property that's what I heard ,and I dont live in Colorado , I have a job here in California . now they are demanding me to pay yearly dues ,
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
just few years ago I learn from real estate agent that the association was being sued for some reason , that they need to stop
Expert:  Irwin Law replied 2 months ago.

You will have to find out more about the association. Such as, is it in any way tied to the land ownership itself. They can be mandatory and result in liens for non-payment of dues. If not, then they are voluntary. Also, try to find out what the lawsuit is about. You don't want to stumble into a situation where you could become personally liable for something. That real estate agent or a local attorney would be the one to ask about that.

I hope that I have provided excellent service and, if so, would appreciate a 5 star rating. If not, please let me know how I can further assist you. There is no additional charge to you for rating me. A bonus is not required, but is always appreciated.
