This question concerns the HOA that fined me $3500 for perimeter wall that I had repaired in July 2016, before the deadline. They waited until April 2017 to send me any notice of $3100 fine and said that I did not contact them. I sold the house and they took $3500 out of escrow account.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state the association is in?

Nevada

Lawyer's Assistant: Has any paperwork been filed?

Just the notice + the sale of my home docs. Not sure what you are referring to.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Yes, is the lawyer located in Las Vegas and is this a free conceltation? Can I make an appointment to see someone?

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.
