Question: I recently received 2 notices, one from my HOA and one from an attoney's office saying that I have ignored a violation notice. I never received a any notice prior to the these notices and now that are telling me I own them $500 for notice and attorney fees. How is this fair? And what can I do?

Answer: If you have not done so already, you can always deliver a signed and dated letter to the HOA informing them that you never received any notices (and, if applicable, explaining why you did not). Be sure to keep a record of all correspondence. Given that a lawyer is already involved, it might also be wise for you to consult with an attorney of your own. There are links to organizations offering free or low-cost legal services on this website.
