receiving unjust late fees from new HOA


Do I have any recourse on a new HOA that tells me that there were late fees transferred from the old management company yet, I have proof that all my payments from my bank were on time. When I showed them all the paid statements she said “Unfortunately, the prior management company seemed to post payments however they felt like it. There are no check numbers and your payments were posted in lump sums instead of monthly. As of April 2021, your account was zero. After that, they logged 4 months of payments (May – August) so you owed September ($25) plus $43.50 in late fees and interest = $68.50 (BALFWD). The September returned check was before we took over on October 1, 2021.

Since then, you made 2 payments to Associa and one of them was returned/stop pay. The October was posted in December.
I don’t have the authority to waive the late fees. Those fees will need to be submitted to the Board for approval.

If you have proof that you have paid the HOA fees you would likely be a winner if the HOA attempted to foreclose on your property to satisfy the debt. But, unfortunately, winning in litigation can be an expensive process. If you are unable to resolve this with your HOA you should contact an attorney to assist you before the issue becomes litigious.
