Collection Options for Community Associations

Assessments are the lifeblood of community associations.  If owners fail to pay their assessments, then associations can not perform their duties.  Once reminder notices have proven ineffective, associations should consider taking legal action to collect delinquent assessments.  The available collection options always include a lien foreclosure action and a personal lawsuit followed by garnishment.  Community associations may also have the ability to terminate the utilities of delinquent units if their governing documents provide for that option.  Consistent application of a written collection policy is advisable.
