This situation can raise questions about your legal obligations. In this article, we’ll explore the nuances of association liens for real estate investors in Florida and when you might not need to pay those association bills. We invite you to watch our informative video for expert insights.
Understanding Association Liens in Florida:
What Are Association Liens? Association liens are legal claims placed by homeowners’ associations to secure unpaid assessments or fees. They are a common concern for real estate investors in Florida, and understanding their implications is crucial.
Your Legal Obligation: It Depends The key question is whether you are legally obligated to pay these past due assessments. In most cases, the answer is yes, but there are exceptions. Factors that determine your liability include the timing of your property purchase, the type of lien, and specific circumstances.
1. Timing of Property Purchase If you acquired the property before the association recorded the lien, you might not be liable for the past dues. The crucial aspect here is the lien’s recording date, which we discuss further in our video.
2. The Type of Lien Matters Certain liens, like super-liens, take precedence over others. Understanding the type of lien on your property is essential. We delve into this in our video for a more comprehensive understanding.
3. Specific Circumstances Some unique circumstances can affect your liability. For instance, if the association failed to follow proper procedures when recording the lien, it might not be enforceable.
