Simply so, do I have to pay HOA fees during foreclosure?
The law basically says that whoever buys property at a mortgage foreclosure sale becomes liable for payment of HOA assessments beginning 10 days after the sale, whether or not a foreclosure deed is actually recorded.
Similarly, do HOA liens get wiped out in foreclosure? Following an HOA foreclosure, all liens that are junior to the HOA's lien—such as a second mortgage—are extinguished and the liens are removed from the property title. While the collateral for the debt has been eliminated, the borrower's obligation to pay remains in place because the borrower signed a promissory note.
Secondly, do HOA dues survive foreclosure?
HOA Levies Are Owner Debts The HOA fee becomes your personal debt once you receive it. As a result, it survives foreclosure. In a foreclosure, the mortgage lender, an HOA, or another party with the authority to place a lien on your home takes ownership of the title and sells the house to recover payment.
How do you stop a homeowners association from foreclosure?
You can stop an HOA foreclosure—at least temporarily—by filing for bankruptcy. Once you file, an “automatic stay” goes into effect immediately. The stay prevents an HOA (or anyone else) from foreclosing on the property or otherwise trying to collect a debt you owe.
