Can a condo be foreclosed for not paying association fees?

They usually don't foreclose for a condo fee, but they will place a lien on the home, meaning it cannot be sold until the lien is resolved.


You can read all about the association's responsibilities to collect condominium assessments and the process that can be followed in order to collect this debt in your governing documents.

Foreclosing on your unit is usually an option, and the last one that an association would probably pursue. But associations usually have the obligation to pursue collecting the debt, and if foreclosure is the last option, the association may chose to use it.


(When you don't pay your monthly assessments, you're essentially asking your neighbors to pay your bills.)
