If the subdivision is made up of individual owners, then the owner on whose property the pool exists is responsible for its maintenance.
As well, it could be a public pool maintained by the local parks department.
Given that your subdivision is a home owners association, read your governing documents -- the land-use documents, usually CC&Rs -- to determine what elements of your subdivision are designated as common areas. Examples can be roadways, greenbelts, golf courses, swimming pools, club houses, tennis courts, walking trails, detention and retention ponds, and so forth. Generally, if there is no home owners association, then there are no common areas.
Read your governing documents to determine who owns the outside of the condominium. Typically, the 'outside' is owned by the association, and of which you share ownership with all other owners. Ownership determines maintenance.
Read your governing documents to determine the answer.Often, limited common areas -- such as enclosed, attached garages in a townhouse -- are intended for the exclusive use of some but not all owners. This means that owners and boards must come to some agreement about upkeep.Without this dialog, the association probably pays for maintenance and upkeep, which an owner may make unnecessary. An owner may be responsible for keeping the area in a 'neat, tidy and clean' condition -- there is no standard for this language.Major maintenance however, may be the exclusive responsibility of the association.
I don't see any need for liability insurance in the case you described. In cases where you have a homeowners association or a condo owners association and they own common property such as a swimming pool, parks, roofs, sidewalks, etc. then they would have a need for both property and liability insurnance to cover these areas. This is what you dues are in place to pay for as well as maintenance.

Read your governing documents to determine the steps the board takes in order to recover the debt from an owner who does not pay association assessments. Your association attorney can best advise you.
An association, like a corporation, may adopt rules that govern the conduct of the organization and its members and those rules are often called bylaws. In real estate law, homeowners are often required to adopt specific bylaw as a condition prior to acceptance by the town of a subdivision plan or changes to an existing plan. For example:All owners of record of any approved lot in the Subdivision shall be Members of the Association, whether or not any improvements have been made on such lot.Each lot shall have voting privileges in proportion to the assessed value of the lot as a percentage of the assessed value of the entire subdivision, adjusted for any improvements made since the most recent assessments as follows...The road, drainage, water supply and street lights serving the subdivision are privately owned and maintained by the Association and the Members shall forever pay for the necessary and reasonable costs for such maintenance, which costs shall be approved by the Association and assessed annually to each lot owner in the following proportions...No Member may file any application to further subdivide any lot, or for any zoning or building variance, or to change the use of any lot to any non-residential use without unanimous written consent of the other Members of the Association.Any deeded parking within the subdivision must be offered to every other member and to the Association prior to selling it to a non-member....

Because the maintenance, preservation and protection of the real estate assets owned in common by every unit owner, owned in common with all other unit owners is the responsibility of the association, you are only responsible for the upkeep of your unit's interior.

Owners are responsible for assessments and owe these debts to the association/ corporation. If unpaid, the association can bill the owner, file a lien against the owner's title or take other collection action. Association counsel is best involved in this action, since an inappropriate or poorly filed lien can be used by the debtor to escape payment. Otherwise, associations cannot 'collect' money' from owners.

A condo or townhouse Homeowners' Association (HOA) governs a group of condos, wherein the association is responsible for the maintenance of the outside of the building(s), landscaping, and utilities, in addition to maintaining common areas and enforcement of the CC&Rs. This is because the properties being governed are condos and not houses. A planned unit development (PUD) HOA is responsible for ensuring compliance with the CC&Rs of the PUD and upkeep of any common areas in the PUD. However, individual owners maintain their homes and land, as each lot in the PUD is individually owned.

If the 'neighborhood' is composed of owners in the association, then owners can vote to remove a set of directors. Your governing documents document this process.

Your association 'earns' its income to pay its bills from owners' assessments. Every association is different from every other association, in terms of the bills it pays for services. Typically, assessments cover master insurance policy premiums, common area utilities, association management expenses, professional fees, asset maintenance, preservation and security, and depending on your community's amenities, more. Your association manager or your treasurer can show you what your assessments cover.
