If you are not on the deed, or otherwise obliged to pay the fees, and you can't afford to pay the mortgage for the condo, then you should move out, administer your Dad's estate, and not pay them any more or less than any of the other creditors that your Dad's estate is obliged to pay out of his estate.
If a debt collector, including the condo association's attorneys, are attempting to collect debts of your Father's estate, directly from you, where you are not otherwise obligated on the debt personally, THIS COULD BE A VIOLATION OF THE LAW. I routinely handle violations of debt collection law at no cost to consumers as the law provides for your attorneys fees and up to $1,000 in statutory damages.
It is very upsetting to me to continue to hear of this practice where grieving family members are tricked into paying debts of deceased loved ones. The ESTATE is obligated to pay the departed's debts through probate, if you are the Administrator, or Executor, then you pay out of the Estate, not your own pocket.
This is not legal advice, but legal information only. This may be considered Attorney Advertising and if so, it is hereby labeled as such, and Attorney John F. Skinner, III is responsible for its content. I am licensed to practice in MA & NH and admitted to the Federal Bar in both States and the Eastern District of Texas.
I agree with Attorney Skinner. If you are not contractually liable in any way then move out, they will have to put a claim on the estate. Or try to negotiate with the condo association to see if they can work out some sort of payment plan.
