Condo foreclosed but HOA fees keep coming

Who's responsible for unpaid assessments?

DEAR BENNY: Recently my condominium unit was foreclosed upon, but the association has now sued me for unpaid condominium assessments. Am I still responsible for this debt? –William

DEAR WILLIAM: Unfortunately you are, but only until the foreclosure sale took place.

Once a new owner took title to your unit — whether it was a successful bidder at the foreclosure auction or the bank itself — that new owner is obligated to start paying the association dues.
