Violation of association regulations and restrictions that are not remedied with the HOA may be subject to having a lien being placed on their property.
A lien is a claim on a residential or commercial property for certain legal obligations of the owner. These obligations can vary, from unpaid charges of HOA dues to not maintaining property according to the bylaws or not applying for an ACC application for any changes to the outside of your home. A valid lien must be satisfied either by full payment of the obligation or by satisfaction when the property is sold. A lien is expensive, it costs the HOA to file a lien...a lien continues to accumulate interest until it is paid and will cost the homeowner to release a lien. In addition, a lien will affect the value of your property. If you have a potential lien looming, please contact the trustees and come to an agreement to avoid a big headache to everyone.
