Question: I purchased a condo in October 2019. My inspection identified several repairs needed. I was assured those were the responsibility of the HOA. What was not disclosed is that in November there would be a vote on a Special Assessment, which passed, and now I have a bill for $4800. The seller had been made aware of this for months, but never gave me that information during our negotiations. Do I have any recourse for the seller to be responsible for all or part of this special assessment since it was not disclosed on the statements provided to me?

Answer: You should contact a real estate lawyer to discuss your situation in detail with them. The State Bar of Arizona provides an online Find-A-Lawyer service at: https://azbar.legalserviceslink.com.
