I have a question about the HOA in Los Angeles County. I was wondering that if you don't pay the fees what will happen? Will they shut off the water and gas that goes to your condo? How long will it take for them to put a lien on your condo? And will they try and sell it if they do? There is no bank lien on the property and has been pay in full.

They can sue you, put a lien on the property, or force the sale of the property. It all depends on what you agreed to when you bought in. It doesn't have anything to do with the county or public utilities.

Agreed. Check your covenants and rules/regulations that you received when you purchased the property to see what exact measures they will take. Unless your HOA's cover the utilities, then they might take further action.

Just wondering, why don't you want to pay your HOA's?

You have to pay your HOA's. They WILL put a lien on the property and if you don't pay past HOA dues and attorney fees, it will go into foreclosure. This can take several months, but you'll end up paying twice as much on attorney fees and clearning up the Notice of Default, among other charges. It will cost 3 times as much as your past HOA dues.

You normally don't get monthly notices to pay your HOA dues. If you rent, do you get a monthly invoice?

Why are you trying to contact them? If it's because you don't know how much or where to send, I would continue to try to contact the HOA but I would begin sending certified/return receipt letters so you can prove attempts to contact them.

Is it possible that your dad paid a year in advance? Some HOA's will allow you to pay in advance.

Four months? CESpeed is right. Try to contact them by mail at this point. Have they put any notice on your door or in the mail to you?
