Unpaid HOA dues keeping us from closing, what are laws in Florida regarding foreclosures/unpaid duesWe were supposed to close on DEC 30 on a foreclosure. The previous owner never paid her dues for years and when the bank took possession they would not pay for someone to cut the grass. Therefore, the HOA paid someone to cut it and keep it up. With the unpaid dues and grass cutting the total is around $7,100 dollars. HOA is saying to the bank to pay 1% of the original note, which is $2,900. The bank is saying in Florida you only have to pay for 1 year unpaid HOA, so the bank is willing to pay $600. Now, HOA will not send our approval letter to bank until bank says they will pay the $2,900. So, we are stuck until the bank pays this, I guess. Any professional advice would be much appreciated!January 16 2014 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
