Property Association Dues
if you buy property and no lien exists then a year later you get a letter stating that if you donít pay past dues from previous owners that a lien will be placed on your property, are you responsible for the dues accrued before you bought the property?

Re: Property Association Dues
Unless you bought the property out of foreclosure or from a party coming out of bankruptcy, the obligation remains. Technically, it is the Seller's obligation and they have breached the warranty of their warranty deed. The best way to handle is to pay to avoid future penalties and interest and request reimbursement from the seller. If seller fails to reimburse, then sue in small claims court. You can also file a claim against your title policy received at closing.
