I bought a fixer upper not knowing it was a part of a homeowners association. Diamondhead Property Owners Association in Diamondhead, MS. They are trying to charge me over $10,000 in unpaid non compliance fees from four years before I owned it and including the three years owned it. I bought it on a quit claim deed and the POA claims they filed something with the county attached to every deed in Diamondhead making the property owner responsible for any debt. I already pay dues since I owned it, water, fire, and taxes even though its vacant. The POA said they would waive the non compliance fees if I fixed the exterior. I spent $10k doing that and then later received another letter threatening legal action if left unpaid. Can I give up my rights to the property? The county said they can sell my property for taxes, would I still be responsible for these fees? Can I give the county my property even though my taxes are current? Can I legally abandon the property and remove my name from the deed, removing my responsibility to these outrageous fees? Can I go to court, and just offer the property up instead of owing fees? If the court orders me to pay, can I do anything to prevent future cost to myself in fees, dues, water, fire, and taxes? This property is a curse I don't know how to get rid of! Please help!!
