Boca Raton, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — If you live in an area with a Homeowners Association, you must pay all dues and fees on time. Otherwise, the community could foreclose on your home, no matter how small. That’s exactly what’s happening at Boca Chase.
A lawsuit just filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court alleges that Vanetta Daly of 10823 Waterbury Drive in Boca Raton failed to pay $1,125 in fees and dues for a townhouse she bought for $121,000 in 2008.
The trouble began when a homeowner failed to pay hundreds of dollars worth of required HOA earlier this year, according to the lawsuit. As the months went by, the outstanding amount increased. At the time the lawsuit was filed, the owner owed at least $1125.
No matter how insignificant the amount may seem, the HOA can foreclose on your home if you don’t pay all your fees and dues when they are due. The Homeowners Association has broad and far-reaching authority in Florida. If the HOA states that you owe a payment, in simple terms, you owe a payment.
Boca Chase HOA is represented by Boca Raton attorney Daniel Wasserstein. There was no immediate response to the lawsuit filed by defendants.
