Q: Are new homeowners responsible for prior dues?
A: In Florida, condominium association liens are governed by Sec. 718.116, Florida Statutes, whereas homeowners’ association liens are governed by Sec. 720.3085, Florida Statutes. Both statutes make the new owner “jointly and severally” liable for unpaid assessments. The statutes specifically provide that:
Sec. 720.3085(2)(a): (2)(a) A parcel owner, regardless of how his or her title to property has been acquired, including by purchase at a foreclosure sale or by deed in lieu of foreclosure, is liable for all assessments that come due while he or she is the parcel owner. The parcel owner’s liability for assessments may not be avoided by waiver or suspension of the use or enjoyment of any common area or by abandonment of the parcel upon which the assessments are made. (b) A parcel owner is jointly and severally liable with the previous parcel owner for all unpaid assessments that came due up to the time of transfer of title. This liability is without prejudice to any right the present parcel owner may have to recover any amounts paid by the present owner from the previous owner. For the purposes of this paragraph, the term “previous owner” shall not include an association that acquires title to a delinquent property through foreclosure or by deed in lieu of foreclosure. The present parcel owner’s liability for unpaid assessments is limited to any unpaid assessments that accrued before the association acquired title to the delinquent property through foreclosure or by deed in lieu of foreclosure.—Jordan Pascale, P.L.
