When buying a short sale house. Are you required to pay the back HOA fees (over 10k) ? is there a way around this?

These will need to be cleared up before a good title can pass on the home. Many times these are a negotiable point as to whether the buyer or seller will pay them. If the seller is not willing to pay you can sometimes agree to a smaller sum with the HOA.
1. Yes, call them.
2. Not without their consent.
