HOA Has Power to Foreclose

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty TN R.E. License 292369

Yes, it is true, the Home Owners Association does have the authority in many cases to begin foreclosure proceedings over delinquent HOA fees.  Do some HOAs take this authority too far? See the link below I would love to know what you think.  Foreclosure is ugly, I don't care what the reasons.  The video represents the opinion of the station doing the story, feel free to interject yours as well.




Fortunately for the Clauers, a federal law, the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, appears to give them legal recourse.

It matters to us as much as it matters to you.

Thanks for re-blogging Jason and Ruth.  This also ran on NPR.  There they say that she only missed 2 HOA payments.  I have a difficult time believing there isn't more to the story, but even if there is, this seems to be a drastic step to leap to.
