I received A Demand Letter from two years ago from the association of the complex which
is in the process of being formed everyone did not receive this letter. There was no Association and no one was paying dues.
If there was no association, there can be no demand on the part of the association. Generally the declaration of a community association must be filed in the government real estate records before it can have any authority over your property.
If the letter is from 2 years ago and nothing has happened since, you probably are safe to no worry about it. If you received a demand letter recently, you should go find a community association attorney.
I disclaim everything and make no represention of the applicability or accuracy of anything I said here. You are not my client; i am not your attorney. I thought about making this disclaimer as a poem and quickly decided not to do so. Robert Frost can sleep easy.
There is no particular form, pro bono or otherwise. The content of the letter will determine the appropriate response. Another consideration is the source: If an attorney or debt collector sent the letter, it likely would need to comply with the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
By the very nature of Avvo, you have only provided limited facts and no documentation, therefore, our response to your question is treated only as a hypothetical, and as such it is merely general in nature. You should not rely on this response in taking or forgoing action in your circumstances without discussing this matter with an attorney. If we had the opportunity to ask you sufficient questions and review relevant documents so that we were satisfied we had all of the relevant facts and circumstances, our response might differ significantly. Without the opportunity to ask you questions, and review all relevant documents and memoranda, we are simply unable to provide any form of legal advice. Our response to your question does not create any attorney-client relationship between us, and we are not acting as your attorney. We reserve the right to decline representation in any case. By answering your question, we are under no obligation to answer further questions. There are very specific deadlines for filing a lawsuit, replying to a lawsuit filed against you, or taking other action in order to preserve your legal rights. You should contact an attorney immediately in order to be fully advised of your rights, and so that you are aware of those deadlines. If you fail to act within the required time frame, you might be forever barred from asserting your rights or defending your position. The attorney answering this question is licensed in Illinois and Iowa only.
