DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Another South Florida homeowner is learning that Homeowner Associations and Condo Associations aren’t kidding when they say you have to pay your fees and dues. If you don’t pay, the HOAs can — and will — foreclose to get what they are owed.
The latest example: Delray Golf View Condominium. The property’s association is foreclosing on Maulaire Seme who purchased a condo in 2014 and allegedly hasn’t paid fees or dues since October of 2021. According to a complaint filed in Palm Beach County, Seme owes $4,034.95 for a special assessment levied in September of 2021, and then monthly maintenance which was $243.01 a month in 2021 and rose to $378.05 in 2022. The grand total due: $7,094.03.
Attorneys for Delray Golf View Condominium are now asking a judge to initiate foreclosure proceedings on the property which is worth $45,000, according to the Palm Beach County Property Appraiser.
“If payment in the full amount of $7,094.43, payable to the order of Delray Gofl View Condominium Association, Inc., is not received in this office by August 19, 2022, then The Association will have no choice but to bring legal action to foreclose th Ellen and for a judgment against you personally. Should this become necessary, and if the Association prevails, it will seek recovery of all of its incurred costs and attorneys’ fees. Those expenses can exceed $3,500” wrote attorneys representing the Association. Read the complete complaint, below.Delray-golf-view
