BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Another example of Florida HOA fees not being “optional” is playing out in the community of Loggers’ Run in West Delray Beach, where the homeowners association is foreclosing on a home over $777 in past due maintenance fees and $685 in legal fees.

According to a lawsuit just filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court, the Island Lakes Section One Homeowners Association is suing Teresa Kramer who owns a home in the 11800 block of Island Lakes Lane in Boca Raton. The suit states that she owes past due maintenance in the amount of $708, and legal fees in the amount of $685. With recording and postage costs, Kramer allegedly owes $1,430.04.

Under Florida law, the HOA can foreclose on Kramer’s home for not paying the required fees. Homeowner Association fees are not optional in Florida. Whether a homeowner agrees or disagrees with the fees assessed, buying a home in a community with an HOA means you agree to pay any fee charged. If payment is not made, foreclosure proceedings may be initiated. Kramer purchased the home for $400,000 in January of 2013.

The homeowners association is represented by Michelle Montekio of the Tucker and Lokeinsky law firm. Kramer had not filed a response as of Monday, September 26, 2022.
