Best Answer

Only if you want clear title to the property. If you fail to clear the lien, the property can be sold from under you. If the lien holder does not forclose you will still not be able to sell the property until the lien is satisfied. Just pay the debt, especially if it is valid. When you inherited the property, you inherited the debt.

Can an HOA collect unpaid dues from a former owner if the home was foreclosed?

If a lien for unpaid dues was recorded against the property prior to the recording of the mortgage that was foreclosed, that lien would survive against the property and would have to be paid when the property is sold. If no lien was recorded then it is likely the HOA is out of luck. The HOA could try to sue in court but the likelihood of collecting from someone who has lost their home by foreclosure is not good.

Can a lien be put on a property in foreclosure for owed homeowner's dues?

If the homeowners' association has recorded covenants and/or bylaws against the home in question, and the dues required by the covenants and/or bylaws have not been paid, a lien can be filed immediately in most cases, regardless of foreclosure or sale of the property. However, to ensure that the lien paperwork is filled out correctly (and avoid thousands of dollars in attorney fees should the homeowner challenge the lien in court), the homeowners' association should hire an attorney to prepare the lien documents.

Can an ex wife put a lien on her ex husband's inherited property from deceased mother?

Let me see if I've got this right... the ex-husband inherited property from his deceased mother. If the ex-wife has no claim to that property, she cannot put a lien on that property. Now if she were awarded a portion of that property in the settlement, and agreed to sell her portion to her husband, she could retain a lien on it until it was paid off, but I'm not getting the impression that's the case here. Basically, if it was never yours to begin with, you have absolutely no justification to try putting a lien on it.
