Condo Associations foreclosing on units

Condo Associations

Have you ever heard of a condo association foreclosing on a condo and then buying it with dues of the owners?

We are having something like that going on here and I do not know who to go to for help.  I can't help but think that this is wrong.  Have rules changed....if they have, I feel that human decency has eluded us.

I have great concern for the folks that lost their unit even though they were trying to work out a payment schedule with the association.

Not WRONG and it is in the by-laws and CCR's of the documents and should be done by state law...it PROTECTS the other unit owners AND is subject to any first lien or mortgage.

It is within the law and I may be wrong but I think in CAlifornia HOA liens and mechanics leans have precedence even over first lients. I would have to check to be sure.

Ginger,

The association needs some mechanism to get paid otherwise other owners risk losing services needed to keep the property in good repair.  The entire complex will fall into disrepair.  C.C. & R.s are a lien ahead of the first loan. 

California recently (2008, I think) made it more difficult for HOAs to foreclose, but they still can.

Ginger,

I was very curious to see what comments your would receive.  I own a condo which I use as rental property, I know they threaten to turn off the water to the unit if dues as not received on time, but have never heard of them doing anything else.  Now I need to check on that.  Very interesting.
