If you owe assessments that are unpaid, you are in violation of the financial agreement you made with the association.

The association is required to pursue you to collect this debt.

You can read your governing documents to remember your obligation to pay assessments, and understand the steps that your association will take to collect your debt.

Your board can tell you whether or not this honest debt has been reported to a credit agency.
