Do you have a copy of your association rules?

An Association can place a lien on your property for unpaid or late dues

"Generally, a COA or HOA has the power to place a lien on your property if you become delinquent in paying the monthly dues and/or any special assessments (collectively referred to as “assessments”).

In New Jersey, a COA lien becomes effective once the association records a claim of lien in the county records (N.J. Stat. Ann. § 46:8B-21(a)). To find out when an HOA lien becomes effective, check the association’s governing documents.

State law and the COA or HOA’s governing documents will usually set out the type of charges that may be included in the lien. If authorized by the association’s governing documents, a COA is permitted to include the following in its lien:

  • past-due assessments
  • late fees (though the association cannot record a lien that consists solely of late fees)
  • fines
  • reasonable attorney’s fees, and
  • interest at a rate established by the association, but no more than the legal rate (N.J. Stat. Ann. § 46:8B-17, § 46:8B-21(a)).

To find out which charges a New Jersey HOA may include in its lien, check the association's governing documents." https://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/new-jersey-hoa-coa-foreclosures.html

What notice is stated in the governing documents for your Association?

Can you tell me what is stated in your Association governing documents?

Ask Your Own Real Estate Law Question
Real Estate Lawyer: Attyadvisor, Attorney replied 10 months ago

So yes you needed to be notified by the procedure set out in your association documents. The Association governing documents are a contract between the owners and the Association. Each party is bound to the terms.
