Got this question in an email today. I’m not sure of the answer, so I thought I’d throw it open to any FOREM readers doing a little weekend reading.

Dear Joel:

I know you’ll be able to help me.  I live in a PUD called villas…much like a condo complex except we go by the state of Florida statutes & constitutions of the home owners associations.  Of the 88 homeowners 6 are being foreclosed, therefore not paying any more association fees.  Is it legal for the assoc. board to demand that the remaining 82 homeowners pay the past due and ongoing unpaid dues of the foreclosed properties?  What is stopping someone selling their home to put a sign out front, move out and expect the other homeowners to pick up their association dues?  This is not addressed in our by laws.

Throw your answers in the comment section.
