Read your governing documents to determine your responsibilities and how they figure into any lien process. Usually, your assessments represent a statutory lien on your title, which is made formal when a lien is filed.

Your association is required to notify you of any failure on your part to honour your obligations and responsibilities as an owner, that you owe to the association. Typically, you are given an option to present your case -- tell your story -- before the association takes further action.

Commonly, filing a formal lien with the local hall of records is one of the last actions that an association takes, given an owner's failure to respond to other attempts to communicate on the part of the association. The final action is to sell your property in order to satisfy your monetary obligations to the association.
