LAWSUIT

BOYNTON BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Another South Florida homeowner is learning that if you don’t pay your HOA dues — no matter how minimal — your HOA can take your home. Francine Walker and Robin Ellman are the latest homeowners to find out that HOA’s are serious and not optional in the land of fun and sun.

According to a lawsuit just filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court, Walker and Ellman own the home at 7317 Wailea Avenue in Valencia Isles. The lawsuit states that they have not paid HOA fees of roughly $675 a month since July of 2021. When interest, fees, and other assessments are added on, the total outstanding balance is now $7,267.15. That may seem like a small amount for an HOA to foreclose over, but it’s not. HOA laws in Florida are clear — a homeowners association can attempt to recover what it’s owed if a homeowner does not pay dues and fees as assessed by the HOA’s Board of Directors.

The lawsuit was served on at least one of the two homeowners who are apparently now residing in Boca Falls — a west Boca Raton community. The two are not listed as homeowners of the home where the summons was delivered.

Valencia Isles Homeowners Association, Inc., is represented by attorney Robert Kaye of the law firm of Kaye Bender Rembaum in Pompano Beach. No response was immediately filed by Mrs. Walker or Mr. Ellman.

Read the complete lawsuit, as filed in Palm Beach County, below.
